Virgin Media Business, The Intelligent Strategic Partnership, and SME Global to headline sponsor #COBBA18

The City of Birmingham Business Awards are just around the corner and Downtown in Business Birmingham is proud to announce our three headline sponsors for the upcoming awards gala dinner; Virgin Media Business, The Intelligent Strategic Partnership and SME Global.

The inaugural #COBBA17 award dinner was hugely successful, filling the private room at the stunning Edgbaston Cricket Club with over 200 of Birmingham’s most influential business leaders. The black-tie gala dinner is a guaranteed sell-out for 2018. Downtown boss Frank McKenna is delighted that the event has returned for a second year, saying:

“Downtown in Business is delighted to be returning to the impressive Edgbaston Cricket Club to bring together the movers and shakers that drive business and growth in Birmingham.

I am also pleased to welcome not one but three headline sponsors for the 2018 City of Birmingham Awards; Virgin Media Business, The Intelligent Strategic Partnership and SME Global.”

The Malmaison hosted the (pretty outrageous) #COBBA17 afterparty that went well into the early hours of the morning. I look forward to celebrating with both the #COBBA18 nominees and winners at this years’ after show venue, the plush champagne and cocktail lounge, Nuvo”.
