Birmingham’s Millennium Point development has opened the doors to its new state-of-the-art event and meeting venue, CONNECT.
The facility is part of a £1m investment plan to bolster the site’s existing offering.
The purpose built space, is located a 10-minute walk from Birmingham’s Grand Central station and can accommodate groups of up to 120 guests across its main event space and three inter-connecting meeting rooms.
Millennium Point, in the heart of the city’s burgeoning Knowledge Quarter, this year celebrates the 15-year anniversary of its Royal opening. It is home to a number of science, technology and engineering focused tenants, as well as to a range of large public spaces available for hire.
Judith Armstrong, chief executive of Millennium Point, said: “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.”
“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.”
