The new space can accommodate groups of up to 120 guests across its main event space and three inter-connecting meeting rooms. It is located within a ten-minute walk of Birmingham’s main rail stations and has links to the city’s road networks.

Judith Armstrong, chief executive of Millennium Point, said: "The idea to create a purpose built space within the Millennium Point development was really powered by Birmingham’s revitalised position as one of the UK’s most dynamic cities. With so much construction, shifting of the city core towards the East and us being located directly opposite where the HS2 link will deliver passengers into the city, we wanted to ensure we could offer dedicated space not only for offices and learning but also for meetings, events and exhibitions.

"Millennium Point  is the landmark building within Eastside, and I’m incredibly proud that we are still at the forefront of technology and innovation, and  offering the city its newest venue with the CONNECT suite."
