UK: New FAM Trip to Birmingham
An independent theatre in Birmingham has teamed up with other venues in the city to run its own familiarisation trip for event planners.
Some 30 corporate and agency event organisers, as well as their partners, will be welcomed to the Midlands on 14–16 November after the Birmingham Repertory Theatre united with Symphony Hall and others.
Suzanna Reid, sales and marketing manager at Birmingham Repertory Theatre, who has organised the visit, said: "Birmingham boasts a range of fabulous world-class venues and this weekend will offer corporate event organisers a chance to visit them and see what the city has to offer. The weekend has been carefully planned with a relaxed itinerary, including fascinating tours and entertainment plus opportunities to find out how our fantastic destinations can add to the mix to help meet any corporate objectives.”
The trip will include a tour of Symphony Hall and a night of entertainment, followed by breakfast on stage at the city’s Town Hall, then a visit to the Edgbaston Test Ground, home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club. On Saturday delegates will be treated to a gala dinner and evening at the theatre, with overnight accommodation provided by Hampton by Hilton.
