The ICC Birmingham has been named ‘Best UK Conference Venue’ at the 2017 C&IT Awards, the definitive awards for B2B events.
This prestigious award honours the UK conference venue that had a standout year in 2016, which was an exceptional year for the ICC. The venue hosted 464 events and maintained a 9.2/10 recommendation score, with 97% of organisers saying they would return to the ICC. The venue, which originally opened in 1991, has also been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in both 2016 and 2017.
Kathryn James, Managing Director for NEC Group Conventions and Exhibitions said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been named Best UK Conference Venue at this year’s C&IT Awards. We faced some tough competition so it is testament to the hard work of the ICCteam, who help our clients deliver outstanding events on a daily basis, that we came out on top.
“The landscape of conferences continues to evolve outside the purpose-built venues, but we continue to grow, invest and look towards the future to offer even more choices to our clients. All this is supported by our outstanding team.”
The C&IT awards were held at Hilton London, Park Lane, on Friday 22nd September with more than 500 event professionals in attendance.
