With Birmingham being the second largest city in the UK, it offers excellent travel links, including planes, trains, and automobiles. Birmingham offers many interesting spaces to hold corporate events, allowing you to choose a building that fits in with the event you’re hosting.

Benefits of holding corporate events in Birmingham

Excellent transport links

One of the many benefits to holding corporate events in Birmingham is that it has great transport links.

Birmingham’s central location within the country means it’s relatively easy to get to from almost anywhere within the country. Similarly, with Birmingham International Airport only a short train journey from Birmingham City Centre, it’s a favoured location for international corporate events.

When here, its robust intercity transport infrastructure, which includes metro, bus, train and cycle lanes, means there are multiple ways for delegates to travel to your event other than by car.

Brum is booming

Birmingham’s economy is booming and shows no signs of slowing down! By A4 of 2021, Birmingham’s Gross Value Added (GVA) grew 6.9% and is predicted to grow a further 2.3% year-on-year, causing an economy of £27 billion by the end of 2023 (Irwin Mitchell).

In 2021, the West Midlands was named the UK’s fastest-growing tech hub with the sector now valued at £15.3bn.

Not only this, but the fact that household brands such as Mondelez, Jaguar and Whitbread have headquarters in the UK’s second city, it’s understandable that there’s an influx of economic growth.

This makes Birmingham a desirable destination for business and a thriving location for opportunity for hosting and growing your corporate event portfolio.

Great restaurants, bars, and hotels

Don’t let the socialising stop when your event ends. Birmingham also offers great opportunities for further networking and socialising. Hospitality clusters like Colmore Business District, Brindley Place, Digbeth, the Mailbox, and the Jewellery Quarter all offer a wide range of cafés, bars, and restaurants.

There are some great central hotels, including Hotel Indigo in the Cube, The Clayton Hotel and The Holiday Inn, depending on your price range.

Community spirit

One great aspect to Birmingham is its sense of community. The city is known for its friendly, honest, and open community, making Birmingham a welcoming destination excellent for holding corporate events.

With Birmingham having one of the youngest, highly qualified workforces and five universities with 73,000 students, the city is extremely diverse and welcoming to all.
