Digbeth also has many conference and meeting spaces available for you to use in an area surrounded by great restaurants and pubs where you can treat colleagues for a post-meeting meal or pint.
Conference venues will normally operate on a day rate or per session hire basis. This figure will normally come in to be around £200-£500 for the full day. In the event that the venue is hired on an hourly basis, there is a minimum amount of time you would need to book the venue, which you can expect to be around 3-4 hours. Costs could also increase depending on the kinds of refreshments you will be providing, as lunches will usually be more expensive than just coffee and snacks. (All data from Tagvenue.com)
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
