Earlier this week, business representatives from across the region arrived at Birmingham Hippodrome in style for the official unveiling of the theatre’s new corporate event spaces.
Our free open day –The Greatest Show Around On Earth – saw over 100 representatives from the local corporate community arrive at Birmingham Hippodrome for one of three dedicated slots taking place throughout the day to find out more about the venue’s unique hospitality and catering offer. Guests at the event included representatives from across business sectors alongside well-known regional agents including Marketing Birmingham, EWL Midlands and ToBook.
Visitors at the Open Day were invited to find out more about the Hippodrome’s reputation for delivering theatrical flair to meetings, conference, private party or corporate hospitality bookings with an escorted tour of the venue’s versatile event spaces. These include the newly refurbished Lloyds Suite, PWC Suite and Gowling WLG Suite alongside the larger-scale Studio 5 and 200-seat studio space, The Patrick Centre.
Guests at the event were also given the opportunity to sample a contemporary breakfast including home-made granola, greek yoghurt and fresh fruit compote, a delicious conference-style lunch that featured macaroni cheese bon bons and an informal bowl food supper with flavoursome dishes based on fish, chicken or vegetables.
Hosted by the venue’s Business Development, Hospitality and Catering Teams, the free open day also featured the chance to hear more about some of the venue’s recent success stories which included a 450-person ‘Winter Is Coming’ themed awards ceremony for the Casual Dining Group, The West Midlands Volunteer Awards on behalf of Ironbridge Gorge Museum, an on-stage Welcome Event for Birmingham City University’s Faculty of Arts in 2016, plus private hospitality packages for Birmingham Airport, CBRE, Hoare Lea & Partners, Lloyds Bank and PwC.
