With a couple of months’ to go until opening, the Vox conference centre, located in Resorts World Birmingham, has announced that it is over half way to achieving its first year rental target and on track for a successful year in stand-alone banqueting.  

Able to accommodate any type of event - from a small meeting or seminar to a banquet for 850 or a conference for 900 delegates - the Vox has been designed with five fully flexible halls and this week that dynamic element was bought to life with the installation of state-of-the-art sky fold walls.

James Elston, Sales Director for the Vox said: “The sky fold walls are a fantastic investment as it means we can completely change the size of a room in just 15 minutes doubling, tripling or halving capacity to suit the clients’ needs. Due to the technology used, the walls are tucked away neatly in the ceiling so they are not only giving the room a seamless appearance but they are not taking up valuable floor space either.

“From as soon as we we’ve been able to we have been giving hard hat tours to potential clients, but obviously it’s still hard for people to visualise just how spectacular the space is going to be when it has essentially been a building site. But now we’re reaching the closing stages the venue is really taking shape and clients can see how fantastic it will be for their event. We’re extremely pleased with what we’ve achieved against budget so far and are confident that once the venue is completed and people can see it in all its glory our bookings will exceed the budget further.”

Strengthening the sales team as the number of enquiries increases and the venue gears up for opening is Sales Executive Emma Peplow, who has returned following maternity leave. With a specific focus on stand-alone banqueting Emma is looking forward to getting back into the role. She said: “It has been amazing to see the difference in the building from six months’ ago to now. Every time I give clients a hard hat tour something else has been done and to see it all coming together and developing into this incredible, state of the art conference facility is just fantastic. It really will be an attractive venue and as a born and bred brummie I’m extremely proud to be associated with it.”

The Vox is managed by the experienced team at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham, which brings nearly 25 years’ experience of providing creative solutions for a wide range of conferences, banquets and events for a multitude of high profile clients.  

 As well as innovative conference facilities and event expertise, its location within Resorts World Birmingham offers delegates at the Vox a wide choice of restaurants, bars, outlet shopping, an Asian themed spa, IMAX cinema, hotel and casino all under one roof. This new proposition, never seen before in the UK, enables organisers to provide their delegates with a unique end to end conference experience.
