When you go to Birmingham this is worth a visit as it is beautiful inside and out. Overlooking the centenury square that has the newly build library. An ideal time to go is at christmas when outside this building they have the ice skating rink and the german christmas market it is truely magical. A must visit

In 1988 Charles, our monarch’s first son, said he was “terribly demoralized” when he saw the plans for the Birmingham International Convention Centre. His comment did not make any difference because he was wrong. From the outside it probably doesn’t win any awards, but inside it is magnificent. The atrium is a walkway between Centenary Square and the canalside at... More

Excellent venue, very big loads of people to help direct you. Huge crowds holds lots of different shows/performers. Right in the centre of Broad St so great for eating/drinking before or after shows. Right near to the canals.

Built back in the 1980's, it is very much a product of its time. Whilst it is both a conference venue and home to the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the lighting needs updating and the general "busy" visual feel of the internal street needs toning down, to bring this venue into the Twenty first century. Otherwise its a great short cut... More

Went to see concert by London Concert Orchestra and singers which was absolutely delightful, full of brilliant music and so much energy from the singers. Everyone dancing in the Aisles.

I attended a works conference at the ICC and was impressed with the venue. The theatre style rooms were vast whilst the dinner served was second to none for a conference on the scale of that which I attended.

The ICC is centrally located just off Bridge Street. The venue is huge and attached to Symphony Hall and the Hyatt Regency by a covered walkway. There are a few shops and a cafe in the ICC.
