The ICC Birmingham

When Queen Elizabeth II opened the ICC in June 1991, it was the UK’s first purpose-built state-of-the-art International Convention Centre. Fast forward to HRH’s platinum jubilee and the ICC is still blazing a trail for the sector - constantly evolving to lead the way in the fast-moving world of meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions.

As a purpose-built venue, we provide so much more. Everything is designed with one purpose in mind: delivering amazing experiences. We deliver superior standards of style and tech throughout 10 halls, and 10 superbly-equipped executive meeting rooms which divide into 25 breakout spaces plus open public spaces that can be transformed into stunning private reception, networking, entertainment and banqueting areas. Our incredibly flexible venue can welcome anything from 3 to 3,000 delegates, for every kind of event. Since reopening post-lockdown in June 2021, an amazing 73,500 delegate days across 182 events. And like the industry, we never stand still. We’ve recently completed a £13million upgrade to ensure we remain at the cutting edge of events. Why do clients choose the ICC? Maybe it’s our iconic image, enhancing their brand profile. Our location on stylish Centenary Square in brilliant Birmingham. Our connectivity, with New Street station a short stroll away. Our multiple-award-winning (650 and counting!) food and drink. Our commitment to sustainability, tackling everything from food waste and local sourcing to recycling and carbon-neutrality. The value we add with inclusive packages and the way we align with their event visions and ESG strategies and help them achieve them. Most of all though, according to our clients, what sets us apart is the service and support our people provide. ‘Above and Beyond’ is a way of life. In our fantastic industry, it takes a lot to lead the way for 30+ years. The ICC is still doing it.
