Frequently Asked Questions
It really depends on the number of guests you expect will attend, and how you would like the suite set up.
We offer a number of solutions from room-hire only to packages that include refreshments, equipment etc.
To get an accurate price please contact our Events Team on 0121 524 3453 to discuss your event and requirements.
This depends on the type of event and the facility that you wish to use.
Our largest facility can hold up to 300 guests for a conference set-up and 280 for a banquet set-up.
We have facilities that can accommodate smaller groups in a more appropriate setting should your event be on a smaller scale.
If you are planning an event that will be hosting a higher number of guests, talk to us about the options. For example we can host exhibitions in the concourse areas and clients can use multiple suites for the same event and create break out areas.
We want to ensure you find the best venue for you so if we can't accommodate your ideas then we will be completely honest with you.
All of our suites are fully equipped with Audio Visual options that will be included with your room-hire. Should you require additional options please discuss your requirements with the Events team.
