Birmingham Conference Centre

Birmingham Conference Centre
   Birmingham’s International Conference Centre (1983–91), an investment by Birmingham City Council and the European Community, is the largest of its kind in the UK, providing a meeting facility for up to 3,000 people. Included in the complex is the acclaimed Symphony Hall. Eleven main conference halls and ten executive rooms are grouped around the spectacular Mall, which forms a route between Centenary Square and Canal Street. The architects’ townscape study ensured commendable coherence in linking the complex with the city centre. While the nearby restored Victorian buildings and revived canal network reflect Birmingham’s industrial past, the contemporary architecture of the ICC endorses Birmin-gham’s claim to being a city with international facilities and aspirations.
