AABham1Birmingham named 'country’s favourite business tourism destination' outside London by UK-based event organisers.

The annual British Meetings & Events Industry Survey (BMEIS) – a report highlighting the buying trends and characteristics of nearly 500 conference organisers from the corporate and not-for-profit sectors – revealed that Birmingham was the preferred choice outside of the capital to host events.

 

Birmingham was ranked ahead of Manchester, Edinburgh and Leeds in the top five by industry professionals.

Birmingham has secured 56 new national and international events in 2016, an increase of 133% on the previous 12 months, delivering an anticipated combined impact of over £35 million to the local economy.

In addition hotels in Birmingham recorded an occupancy rate of 81% in October 2016 - 0.6% higher than October 2015.

Since the start of 2016, Birmingham has been boosted by major openings and redevelopments across its business tourism sector. Europe’s first Park Regis Hotel and AC Hotel Birmingham opened in the spring, while BLOC Hotels has launched new apartments in the city’s Jewellery Quarter.

New or refurbished conferencing facilities in the region include Canalside at The Cube, The Slate at Warwick Conferences, a £1.8 million refresh of the ICC’s halls and meeting rooms and the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre (BCEC).
