IEEE Nano 2012 (20-23 August), CASE Europe (27-31 August) and SSIEM (4-7 September) all took place within three weeks of each other and had more than 3,000 delegates in attendance, equating to around 36,000 bed nights for the city’s accommodation providers.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Nanotechnology Conference took place from 20-23 August and attracted 450 delegates.
The successful bid to host the event was undertaken as part of the Birmingham Ambassadors programme – an initiative which aims to bring the city’s leading academic figures together with the private sector to showcase Birmingham’s wealth of available expertise.
Catherine Newhall-Caiger, Business Development Director at the ICC said: "We were delighted to host not just one, but three highly renowned international conferences at our venue this summer. Next summer is set to be another busy one for us with the International Union of Physiological Sciences conference secured for next July. The five day conference is expected to attract 4,000 delegates to the city.
"Our location, flexibility and experience make us the ideal venue for international conferences and is definitely a market we will continue to grow. Since opening our doors in 1991 we have hosted over 110 international events helping to put Birmingham on the map as the events capital.
"The success of all three conferences is testament to the close working relationship we have with our clients and everyone at the ICC who worked tirelessly to make sure the events passed without any problems."
