Company Bio:


At the ICC, we believe that great events have the power to change, to inspire and to connect people. Ideas are ignited, skills are shared and relationships are built. We believe that it’s better to innovate than imitate. So if you need your event to make some real noise, to pull no punches and leave your delegates uniquely captivated, choose the ICC.

For 28 years, we’ve provided a location and venue that not only brings people together but sparks real change. And we’d love to make that difference to your event too.

Located in the heart of the country, we are situated in the bustling and vibrant city centre of Birmingham, the UK’s most popular conference and events destination outside of London (BMEIS 2019). A purpose-built convention centre, our 10 halls and 10 Executive meeting rooms will leave you spoilt for choice! With private registration areas, dedicated foyers, and breakout rooms, our flexible spaces can accommodate any event, whether you have two or two thousand delegates.

On average, we host around 400 events a year, welcoming over 350,000 visitors from across the globe. It’s our job to ensure every single one leaves feeling alive with excitement and possibility. That’s where the game-changing experience of our passionate in-house teams comes into play.

It’s fair to say that Amadeus, our in-house, award-winning catering team, understand what’s required to deliver daring menus that cater for every dietary requirement and budget imaginable, and they do it with consideration and innovation. From sourcing local produce to adding a little live theatre, Amadeus will work with you to create menus and dishes that don’t just satisfy appetites, but smash expectations.

Our in-house Production and Graphics teams will bring their experience and knowledge to help you unleash the full potential of the venue, utilising everything that is already on-site, from the latest plug and play technology, to projection mapping and full stage and lighting sets.

But pulling together all of the above, and the many other factors that make the ICC a fantastic venue for your next event, is our people. Events are more than simply our lifeblood, they’re our passion. Events are what we do, it’s who we are. And we know that the key to a successful event starts with a collaborative and rewarding partnership between a venue and an organiser. Our team, from our technicians to our catering staff, our hosts to our event managers, are ready to play their part in delivering successful events day after day.
