The Venue

Our gorgeous, landmark host hotel was originally opened by Isaac Horton back in 1879 to designs by Thomson Plevins.  Since then, it’s welcomed royalty and rock stars and has been a hub in the city for meetings and networking as well as incredible events in our breath-taking Grand Ballroom.

Following a £50 million restoration and refurbishment, Birmingham’s original grande-dame hotel re-opened in May 2021, having been closed for almost 20 years. As the latest chapter in its history takes shape, DIB is delighted to be hosting its annual Regeneration conference at this perfectly located venue – which is literally a two-minute walk from New Street Train Station.
