Conference Venues Hire Guide

Second only to London in population size, Birmingham is one of the UK’s most diverse cities and has a thriving business population, which has led to a number of high-quality conference centres and meeting facilities appearing across the city. Not only that, its location in central England makes it a prime spot for meetings and business event spaces, served by the impressive Birmingham New Street station, as well as smaller railway stations, trams, and buses. Reachable from almost every corner of the UK, it’s often used as a midway meeting point for businesses all over the country, while also being able to welcome guests from abroad via Birmingham International Airport.

Whether you’re after something central near the New Street railway station or convention centre in Greater Birmingham, with Tagvenue finding the perfect conference space is as easy as 1-2-3. Here’s what you need to consider while looking for conference venues:

  • The venue’s size – Pick a space that’s not too small (and not too big) for the number of attendees you’re expecting. We’re listing both large convention halls and corporate venues and smaller meeting rooms, so you’re sure to find something for you – no matter if you’re inviting 30 or 3000 guests.
  • Accessibility – With our smart search engine you can easily find conference venues with disabled access. Make sure to check the business event spaces that have transport links and parking facilities nearby.
  • The event date – Having a few dates in mind makes it much easier to find a venue that’s available at that time. Also, check whether there are other major events taking place at the same time. For example, if you’re organising a tech meetup you don’t want it to overlap with a hackathon in the same city.
  • Extra facilities – Go through your conference’s agenda and note all the features you may need, such as screens, whiteboards, flipcharts, audiovisual equipment etc. Ask the venue manager in advance which facilities they can provide.

Apart from its location, one of the reasons for Birmingham’s popularity as a destination for conference spaces is its diversity. The city’s conference venues come in all shapes and sizes. The most popular ones include:

  • Birmingham hotel conference venues – Quite often the attendants come from abroad, so it’s a common practice to look for conference rooms with accommodation. Responding to this demand, numerous hotels in Birmingham offer conference facilities for hire. Many of them are home to state-of-the-art restaurants, too – so you can arrange a conference dinner to remember.
  • University conference venues – Widely known as a student city, it’s no surprise Birmingham boasts a huge choice of university conference venues. Lots of them are beautiful, historical buildings with a unique charm. These spaces are good for more than just academic activities– they make a great fit for business meetings, too.
  • Birmingham Airport conference facilities – Birmingham Airport is one of UK’s busiest airports, serving more than ten million passengers annually – and the numbers are rising rapidly! It’s no surprise conference venues close to this major transport hub are in big demand. Many of them are hotel venues that offer accommodation as well.
  • Large conference venues – Planning a massive function, and your guest list keeps growing longer and longer with every passing day? With #tagvenue you’re sure to find a Birmingham venue that’s big enough for your needs. Our picks include conference halls and presentation venues.

Good planning is essential when it comes to hosting a successful business conference, design meetup or any other gathering. Here’s our list of essential tips for organising world-class conference venues in Birmingham:

  • Set your main objectives – First, answer yourself: what is the number one purpose of your conference? Focus on it and keep it in mind while deciding on all aspects of the event, including choosing the best conference halls in Birmingham. The city has many diverse spaces – with our expert knowledge and smart search engine you’ll easily find one that meets your expectations.
  • Give the audience some time off – This may not seem obvious at first, but breaks are essential for maximum productivity. To make this possible, conference spaces in Birmingham usually offer designated breakout spaces. Schedule several minutes of rest every 60-90 minutes – the attendees will thank you for it.

Take care of every technical detail – Reduce the risk of errors by having a rehearsal before the event. Most conference venues in Birmingham allow you to arrive several hours in advance and check if everything is working properly.

Booked Telford Room at IET Birmingham: Austin Court
We loved the location, the staff were brilliant, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The catering was excellent, had a good selection, and was served in a lovely manner. We had use of the theatre and 3 break out rooms and all were of a high standard. Eliana and Angie are the organisation's wonderful support team! Kim who looked after the AV: was really excellent. Responsive, calm, fast and helpful. Really helped the event go well. We would be happy to recommend the IET to others, and I'm sure our delegates would do the same as we got great feedback from all of them.
