The Eastside Rooms set to launch in Birmingham
A new conference and events venue – The Eastside Rooms – is set to launch in Birmingham in the spring of 2020.
The venue, which will include an onsite hotel, is being built as part of the Eastside development of the city, which will include HS2 and will be form part of the ‘Knowledge Quarter’.
The Eastside Rooms will feature one of the city’s biggest pillar-free banqueting spaces, with room for 1,200 delegates and more than 2,980sqm of event space.
“The Eastside Rooms is a really exciting new development for the industry and is arriving at just the right time, in a dynamic city with a heritage of fantastic venues and interesting meeting spaces,” commented regional general manager, Matt Huddart. “This part of Birmingham has an amazing heritage that will be woven into the design of the hotel, but it also has a great future, and will becoming the city’s knowledge and information district, with businesses and innovation centres being built around it.
“We’ve worked really closely with event organisers from the very outset of this project to make sure we’re creating the right spaces with the right infrastructure for a modern event. Over the next few months we’ll be inviting more #eventprofs into the space so we can continue to listen to what they are after and give them the space they need.”
The Eastside Rooms will open in spring 2020, however the space itself will be presented to meetings and events planners in the autumn this year.
