The campaign’s key messages, including the region’s central location, connectivity and variety of world-class venues, will form the backbone of the city’s exhibition presence throughout 2014.

Leading the 'Where the World Meets' campaign through a series of online interviews will be Julian Kettleborough, commercial director of meetings venue The Studio; Suzanna Reid Barreiro da Silva, sales and marketing manager of Searcys at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre; Stephen Cresswell, senior general manager of De Vere Hotels & Leisure Limited and Lisa Cook, account director at the International Convention Centre.

Kettleborough said: "Raising Birmingham’s business tourism profile not only enhances perceptions of the city globally, but also plays a large part in engaging civic pride. We have a great city and one we should all be very proud to promote."
