Selection of the best in Birmingham

BCB offers event support, venue location and accommodation booking. Additional services include marketing support and social itinerary building. Visitors to the stand can tap into BCB’s expert local knowledge as well as liaising with their stand partners to build a full picture of what Birmingham has to offer. They can also find out more about the city’s event credentials via a short film produced in conjunction with Meetings Review which will premier on the stand. 


One of the stand partners, Amadeus is one of the UK’s leading event caterers and, as a division of The NEC Group, is well versed in catering for thousands of visitors a year on site across The NEC, The NIA, The ICC and The LG Arena. Amadeus menus are bespoke, designed especially for each event and client, with dishes that reflect the event's locality and the season - all prepared and cooked on site.  The team delivers public catering, fine dining and banqueting to visitors from all around the world and brings the skills and resources of 34 years in the business to new venues and events.


Thinktank, Birmingham’s interactive science museum, has recently revamped its conference offering. From a room for 8 to a conference for 500, Thinktank offers a massive range of first class services. Companies can make the most of the venue’s unique facilities and hold presentations under the stars in the digital Planetarium or among the compelling backdrop of the museum galleries.


The Public, is a brand new creative community, cultural and business space in West Bromwich.  This fantastic multi-use centre offers a series of airy, interconnected, flexible spaces - ideal for workshops, conferences, events, exhibitions, meetings, seminars and product launches. There’s also a fully fitted theatre, state of the art audio visual facilities and cafe bar to cater your event.


Winterbourne House is a Grade II listed building dating from the early 1900s. This historic setting has a backdrop of a botanical garden - one of the best surviving examples of an Edwardian Arts and Crafts suburban villa garden. Full of character, the eight meeting rooms can accommodate from 8-40 delegates, making them an ideal setting for board meetings, seminars or training sessions. Each of the rooms is individually themed with William Morris prints and Edwardian ornaments, echoing the period of the venue.


Cranmore Park is one of the best kept event, conference and exhibition secrets in the Midlands. A light airy venue with over 3500 square metres of space, it is a short distance from Birmingham city centre, the NEC and Birmingham International Airport . Cranmore Park is built over two levels incorporating three flexible event spaces, two purpose built restaurants and a coffee lounge, outdoor terraces, eight meeting rooms, a private reception and free parking for over 400 cars. Its flexibility means it has hosted everything from a gaming tournament to trade shows and conferences.


MCL offers audio visual expertise with experience spanning awards ceremonies, roadshows, product launches, and many other types of live event, both large and small scale. With a portfolio of over 4,000 rental items including the latest in widescreen displays, LED lighting, moving lighting, professional audio, video and cameras as well as set and staging, MCL Birmingham can deliver a fully integrated service whatever your event requires.


Ian Taylor, commercial director at Marketing Birmingham, says:

“From historic buildings to state of the art galleries, Birmingham and the surrounding area have it all. The city is continually building on its event offering and the past few weeks alone have seen Pope Benedict XVI visit as part of his state visit to the UK, the Green Party conference; and the British Science Festival, one of the largest festivals of its kind in Europe. There are even more developments in the pipeline including the forthcoming opening of The Cube and the return of BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards to The NEC.”
