ICC Birmingham completes second phase of refurbishment

The International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham has completed the second phase of its multi-million-pound refurbishment programme.

With £1.8million spent over the last few months, the ICC has seen refreshes on halls 4, 9 and 10 along with four of its executive meeting rooms.

One key improvement has been the addition of large format digital screens throughout the Public Mall. There has also been investment in upgrading the wi-fi, along with modernisation of the lighting throughout the Mall, registration and foyer areas.

Director of event services, Allan Boyle, said: "As we celebrate our 25th birthday this year we felt it was time change the physical look and feel of our spaces to create an even better experience for our customers. The digitisation has opened up the Mall from an activity point of view allowing clients to promote their events, and the Wi-Fi enhancements were extremely important for delegates to have a positive conference experience."

The next stage of the refurbishment will be completed in 2017, and will be focused on additional halls and executive meeting rooms as availability allows.
