Birmingham Conference & Events Centre (Holiday Inn)

Birmingham Conference & Events Centre (Holiday Inn)

This purpose-built events venue boasts an enviable city centre location and offers over 2,000 square metres of fantastic up to the minute function space with capacity for up to 1,000 delegates. With built in flexibility the BCEC is a superb venue for product launches, exhibitions, large scale conferences, award presentations, private receptions and dinners, and all manner of smaller seminars and executive meetings.

The event space is arranged over two floors, with a total of 24 adaptable meeting rooms, all swish and contemporary with lots of natural daylight, providing the perfect focused setting for all sizes of business functions. Each room is offered as a blank canvas which can be tailored to suit your event, with a professional team at hand to take care of every detail and ensure that all runs without a hitch. The meeting rooms cater for maximum numbers of 16-56 delegates in cabaret style or 10-16 for a board meeting.

Dominating the second floor, with its own private access, is the Mercian Suite; accommodating up to 1,000 guests in theatre style, or 750 for dinner. With a separate space for reception, registration or refreshments, as well as private bars and access from a heavy good lift, this space is hard to beat for car launches and exhibitions, large scale conferences and presentations, or glittering gala dinners. Fully soundproofed, the space can be divided into two rooms, allowing for two events to run in tandem.

All rooms at the BCEC are fully air conditioned, and have super-fast Wi-Fi, and state of the art audio technology. The venue offers a range of delegate packages for daytime only or for events which require an overnight stay. The BCEC is conveniently attached to the Holiday Inn Birmingham City Centre right next door, via a fully enclosed glass walkway. The Holiday Inn has 261 stylish and modern ensuite rooms, providing the perfect overnight accommodation for your delegates.

The BCEC takes catering very seriously and offers a wide range of bespoke menus to include a delicious selection of international cuisine, fabulous working lunches and buffets, and healthy breakfasts, snacks and refreshments.

The BCEC is just a very short stroll from Birmingham New Street station and within easy reach of nearby airports. Parking can be found nearby in charged car parks.
