Birmingham to host Green Party

The Green Party is to bring its
autumn conference to the Birmingham Conservatoire, 10-13 September. Organisers
expect 500 delegates for an event estimated to be worth around £500,000 for the
local economy.

The conference comes to Birmingham for the first
time and will be the eighth party political conference the city has hosted in
five years.

Marketing Birmingham will provide
accommodation booking and event support via a bespoke website for the
party.

Commercial director at Marketing
Birmingham, Ian Taylor, notes the Green Party Autumn Conference is the third
party political conference to take place in the city this year “and enhances our
reputation as a host of major political events”.

The Conservatives are due to hold
their Autumn Conference in Birmingham in October, and altogether this is a
clear sign of the confidence that the political parties have in Birmingham’s ability to
deliver a world-class event.

“The Conference forms part of a
busy month for Birmingham with major
events taking place in the city. This includes the Pope’s visit and the British
Science Festival, one of the largest festivals of its kind in Europe.”

Green Party leader Caroline Lucas
MP: says she has been impressed with what Birmingham is offering.
“It’s well connected by public transport, allowing easy access for our delegates
travelling in from around the country. The Conservatoire’s central location
places our delegates right in the heart of the city, so they will have excellent
opportunities to unwind and explore after a busy day in
conference.”
