The Eastside Rooms to Launch in Birmingham

- New purpose-built conference centre to launch in 2020 -

 

28th May 19, UK: A new, state of the art conference and events venue is set to launch in Birmingham in spring 2020. The new centre, which will feature an on-site hotel, is being built as part of the ‘Eastside’ development of the city, alongside HS2, and will form part of the ‘knowledge quarter’ being created around the historic area.

 

With its location just 10 minutes’ walk from Birmingham City Centre, adjacent to HS2, and on the side of the city’s beautiful canal network, the venue’s owners are already calling it ‘the most connected conference centre in the UK’. At its heart will also be the city’s largest pillar free banqueting space, capable of seating 1,200 delegates, surrounded by over 800 sqm of plenary, breakout, meetings, and events space.

At its heart will also be the city’s largest pillar free banqueting space, capable of seating 1,200 delegates, with a total of 2980 sqm of meeting space including breakout, plenary and smaller event areas.


“The eastside rooms is a really exciting new development for the industry and is arriving at just the right time, in a dynamic city with a heritage of fantastic venues and interesting meeting spaces,” comments Matt Huddart, Regional General Manager, the eastside rooms. “This part of Birmingham has an amazing heritage that will be woven into the design of the hotel, but it also has a great future, and will becoming the city’s knowledge and information district, with businesses and innovation centres being built around it.”

 

“We’ve worked really closely with event organisers from the very outset of this project to make sure we’re creating the right spaces with the right infrastructure for a modern event,” continues Matt
