ICC Birmingham

We worked with Birmingham City Council and the NEC Group throughout all aspects of the development of the ICC and the marketing of Birmingham as a conference and event destination.

As well as working with the design team throughout the project, we prepared the brief and feasibility study. The ICC Birmingham is the largest centre in the UK and incorporates the internationally-renowned Symphony Hall. We also produced the initial operations and marketing plans. We continue to maintain a good working relationship with the NEC Group, helping them with their new overseas projects and the latest developments at the NEC.
