Stories of success.

Our city has seen it all. Conferences and events across every sector and field, with people from all over our nation, our continent, and the world.

We were the UK’s 5th most popular conference destination in 2019 (BMEIS), when we welcomed 3.5 million delegates, across 52,000 meetings and events. So we know a thing or two about how to host, and how to make organising your bespoke conference a little easier.
