Edgbaston hosts region's leading Business Awards
Edgbaston Stadium recently played host to one of the region’s most prestigious regional awards ceremonies as around 550 guests gathered in the new Exhibition Hall for the annual Birmingham Post Business Awards.
Twelve awards were presented in the newspaper’s celebration of business across the West Midlands with Coleshill-based IM Properties taking the honours in the flagship ‘Company of the Year’ award category.
Alun Thorne, Editor at the Birmingham Post, said: "This was the first time we have used Edgbaston Stadium for our business awards but I don't think it will be the last.
“As a venue it provided everything we needed in terms of scale, facilities and accessibility, the feedback from our guests was extremely positive and the staff could not have been more helpful."
Edgbaston’s new conference & events facilities include the 1,050 sq metre Exhibition Hall, a 700-capacity banqueting suite, and 2-300-capacity hospitality suites that were unveiled in 2011 as part of a £32 million redevelopment .
Penny Carter, Sales & Marketing Manager for Conferences & Event at Edgbaston Stadium, said: “Staging an event like the Birmingham Post Business Awards is a great privilege and demonstrates just how highly thought of we are as an events venue by the regional business community.
“We pride ourselves as being one of the most flexible venues here in the Midlands, and hope that showcasing our facilities to such an esteemed audience will help bring more events like this to Edgbaston in the future.”
