Conference Aston unveils phase one of its £5.4m redevelopment

Birmingham-based conference, hotel and event venue, Conference Aston, has unveiled the first phase of its £5.4m redevelopment project.

Following the recent refurbishment of 53 bedrooms to reach a minimum four-star standard, Conference Aston gave guests a guided tour of the enhanced restaurant, bar and lounge areas before being taken across campus to Aston University for the opening of the new Conference Aston Meeting Suites (CAMS).

As Conference Aston prepares to close its Lakeside Conference Centre to begin the next phase of redevelopment work, CAMS allows its to continue to offer meeting rooms for the next three years.

“With the impending redevelopment of the Lakeside Conference Centre, it was crucial that we were able to offer our clients a new, higher quality conference venue, befitting of the city’s reputation as a destination for business tourism,” says Director at Conference Aston, Lucy Talbot. “If anything, the new space has allowed us to improve on what we can offer and this has been reflected by the bookings we already have from the likes of Birmingham City Council, NHS and Sustainability West Midlands.”
