You know what you want from a conference venue. A convenient location, cutting-edge technology, flexible rooms for meetings and events, and, if you need accommodation, a comfortable place to stay.
You’re in the right place.
This is a conference centre in Birmingham, the heart of the West Midlands. Event venues here are only two miles from the city centre with enviable transport links, whether you’re arriving from Birmingham New Street station, Birmingham International airport or by car via the M42, M5 or M6.
Once here, you and your delegates will enjoy state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, free WiFi, and stylish meeting rooms flooded with natural light. The conference centre in the modern hotel runs across two floors, with a variety of room configurations to accommodate groups from 12 to 250.
At the end of the day, your guests can choose to relax and revive in the bar and 1900 Steakhouse Bar & Grill, before retiring to a comfortable bedroom just footsteps away. And you’ll find all this in a leafy conservation park, in a peaceful spot on the edge of the University of Birmingham campus.
You can see you’re in safe hands with the essentials.
So let’s talk about the value added. The unexpected dash of style, the spark of personality: it’s those individual Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre touches that will bring your conference to life.
Context matters. When you’re aiming to inspire and innovate, you want a conference venue that’s doing the same. It’s hard to think of a more appropriate location than the University of Birmingham.
This leading global university loves to be the first to do things. It was the UK’s first civic university, which welcomed students regardless of religious faith or social background; the first to build a women’s hall of residence; the first UK university with its own medical school. Now a Top 100 international university, it continues to encourage and empower people, developing innovative solutions to address the world’s big issues. Now you can share that pioneering heritage and intellectual curiosity with your delegates.
For an event venue that’s out of the ordinary, you’ll find our two original buildings are packed with character and charm.
The beautifully-restored Grade II-listed Garth House is now a luxury hotel, ideal for an important small business meeting.
For a larger meeting room seating up to 150 theatre style, choose the newly-refurbished Hornton Grange.
Help on hand
From the moment you first get in touch to the day you drive away, you and your guests deserve to be looked after by people who know their stuff.
That’s why the staff here are handpicked for their friendly, proactive and professional approach to service. You’ll always be listened to when you’re speaking with our experienced conferences and events team. Every delegate will receive a friendly welcome not just on arrival, but throughout their stay here. If anything’s not quite as expected, all you need to do is let us know; we’re here to help you.
Downtime on the doorstep
With an enviable campus location, the hotel offers an impressive range of leisure options for the visitor. The Barber Institute of Fine Arts, the Lapworth Museum of Geology, and Winterbourne House and Garden are all just a short stroll away, and you’ll find these important names honoured in the meeting rooms at Garth House. Throughout the rest of the hotel, the intellectual, scientific and cultural achievements of the university are honoured in conference room names: from Nobel prizewinners to internationally renowned writers; from groundbreaking obstetrician Dame Hilda Lloyd to pioneering prison reformer Margery Fry.
Hoping for something more active? Try out the University of Birmingham’s Sport & Fitness club’s swimming pool, the only 50m pool in Birmingham. It’s available to all conference guests.
