The first event took place last month, with 300 lawyers gathering at the ICC for the SCIL's annual conference and exhibition.

The SCIL will return to the venue in May for its AGM, then again in September and January for two further events.

Stephen Webber, chairman of the SCIL and partner at Hugh James, said: "The ICC provided the best location for us and our delegates as its central location and proximity to the motorway network and train lines made it easier for delegates from across the country to access compared to a London venue.

"As well as location, the event space was important to us as we needed to hold a conference for 300 people, break-out areas, an exhibition and a buffet lunch. We needed different rooms of different sizes while maintaining a seamless experience for delegates – and that’s exactly what the ICC provided.

"The staff were absolutely fantastic; they were very helpful and well organised. We’ve had great feedback about the venue from our delegates and as organisers we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We’re now looking forward to returning in May for our AGM."

Catherine Newhall-Caiger, business development director for the ICC added: "We are delighted that the SCIL enjoyed their first conference with us - the feedback from the organisers and delegates is testament to our experience and expertise and reflects the effort we all put in to make the ICC Birmingham a welcoming venue. We look forward to welcoming them back for their AGM in May."
