Our award winning events and conference venue just got better, with a new £350,000 investment to upgrade our 354 seat Auditorium.

Originally opening as the first IMAX cinema in Birmingham, our Auditorium has been a popular destination for large-scale events, conferences, esports tournaments and screenings, and is one of 17 diverse events spaces available at Millennium Point.

Transformed to new heights

We’re always looking to reach new heights and this investment was a great opportunity to transform the Auditorium to the next level for clients and visitors. We’ve installed a new 10m x 3m participant stage area beneath the 16 m x 10 m giant screen to provide greater space and flexibility for panel events, presentations, and live performances.

Hybrid and Virtual Event Capabilities

We’ve also recently launched our new range of hybrid and virtual event packages. To support this we’ve upgraded our AV equipment which includes an M32R digital mixing desk with 40 input channels and high fidelity audio; an intelligent LED lighting system including a dozen moving wash lights and spot lights; mounted Panasonic PTC-280 cameras controlled remotely for high quality live streaming and a Kramer 8×8 Matrix switcher which allows switching of screen content seamlessly.

Additionally, six trusses have been installed around the Auditorium creating 30 more opportunities for clients to add their own lighting equipment to further enhance their event.

Equipped with a new recording studio

The upgrades don’t stop there! We’ve added new studio spaces alongside the upgraded Auditorium, to allow for live streamed performances, meetings and debates.

Flexible Platform space below Auditorium

The Auditorium is supported by our Platform space, located directly below and features a fully licensed bar, AV equipment and provides additional room for networking, dinners, and drinks receptions.

Millennium Point team proud of results

Rebecca Delmore, Commercial Director at Millennium Point said: “Without a doubt the events sector has transformed considerably over the past year, but alongside the challenges that have been faced there are huge opportunities to embrace new technologies and open up events to a much broader and more diverse audience, both on and off-site.

“We’re proud to be able to offer best in class facilities and hospitality for visitors and event organisers to enjoy here at Millennium Point. With this investment in our auditorium we are also supporting and embracing the future of hybrid events to ensure that, wherever audiences are based, they can enjoy a high-quality experience.”
