Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport - NEC

Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport is a snazzy modern hotel with a convenient Midlands location less than 2 miles from Birmingham International Airport. It’s a hot spot for big weddings and is one of the largest conference venues in the Midlands with capacity for up to 600 guests. Book it for business meetings and events like exhibitions, awards ceremonies, AGMs, training and team building days, product launches, gala dinners, networking receptions and corporate parties.

In the Aspire Conference Centre at Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport there are 20 event spaces for hire. The biggest is the Lancaster Suite which has a private bar and entrance, and booked as a whole seats 600 delegates in theatre style, 450 for a banquet, 400 for a dinner-dance, and 240 in cabaret arrangement. The room divides into three smaller spaces, with Lancaster 2&3 both holding up to 170 people and Lancaster 1 having room for 80. Book 2&3 together to seat 400 guests, or 1&2 for 300 – flexibility to suit your event.

It’s a similar story with The Harrier Suite which as a whole holds 150 delegates in theatre style, 100 banqueting, and 58 in U-shape. Again, the room splits into three smaller spaces that all hold 35 people in theatre style, 22 in U-shape and 20 at a board table, but you can book 1&2 or 2&3 together to up that capacity to 60, 34 and 30 respectively.

There are 8 smaller meeting rooms, with the Air Acobra, Armstrong Whitley and Hurricane each seating up to 25 executives in theatre style and 16 for a board meeting. The Spitfire holds 15, and the Handley Page, the Hawker Tempest and Bristol Beaufighter up to 14. Smallest is the Mosquito which seats 8.

You’ll have high speed wifi, cutting edge audio-visual equipment and an experienced team to help plan and run a memorable event. There are delegate packages available and catering options come via the experienced in-house team. The 239 contemporary bedrooms have free wifi, Freeview TV, blackout curtains, a pillow menu, and a tea and coffee tray. For dining there’s the Marco New York Italian or the Holiday Inn open lobby, and on-site is a leisure club with gym and indoor pool.

Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport has plenty of parking and easy access to the M42 and M6. A daily complimentary shuttle service runs between the hotel and Birmingham International Train Station, connecting to Birmingham International Airport.
