Academic Venues in Birmingham

Academic venues can make excellent hosts for a variety of personal and corporate events, such as meetings, conferences, wedding receptions, and private parties. In Birmingham in the West Midlands, there are several of these types of venues which can offer you room hire at competitive prices. One such example is the modern Bournville College Conference and Events Centre which is one of the most favoured academic venues and conference venues in the Longridge area of the city. There are five function rooms (which also act as flexible meeting rooms) to pick from which can accommodate up to 200 guests. Whether you wish the events team to create you a bespoke package or you’d prefer to pay fixed rates for room or venue hire, you choose either option all-year-round. Another of Birmingham’s most popular academic venues comes in the form of Conference Aston, which is situated within the grounds of Aston University in Birmingham. It prides itself on being a centre of excellence for conferences, meetings, and training, and offers on-site accommodation as well as more than thirty meeting rooms.
