For some organisers we understand a vital element of their event is security. The ICC has been involved with a number of high-security events including The G8 Summit - which saw eight of the world's most influential leaders converge on The ICC and Birmingham – all three major UK party conferences and a NATO Defence Ministers Meeting.
Whatever the size and nature of an event, our Security team are experts and can advise and provide guidance on a range of security issues. Our uniformed Hosts offer a fully professional service and are door licence trained and compliant with Security Industry Association (SIA) regulations. Our Hosts are also trained to the highest level in customer service, have continuous training on Health and Safety and in addition most hold First Aid Certificates.
We offer additional services including scanners for delegates and hand wands. We also have personnel trained to carry out searches.
The ICC holds around 350 events annually, which equates to over 300,000 delegates. Not only this, the Mall is a public thoroughfare linking the Convention Quarter to the rest of Birmingham city centre and we estimate a footfall of 50,000-100,000 people each and every week. As such, it is a key location for highlighting your brand or product. We do have selected media spaces available for advertising through our Mall from hanging banners to product displays to our media wall. For more information call +44 (0) 121 200 2000.
The ICC provides first-class technical services, with a complete range of audio-visual equipment, sound systems and lighting control in every hall, all configurable to ensure the right level of presentation quality. Our Technical Managers will always optimise the technology and equipment on offer, and using their unique venue knowledge and technical expertise will guide you through the options - and ultimately lead you to - the most creative solutions to all your technical needs.
Infrastructure is in place to support our clients’ needs, whatever they may be. The extensive cabling network runs throughout the venue and is bespoke to customer requirements. Internet connections are normally from 512Kb to 8Mb, but this can be increased if required. If you are holding an event that utilises facilities at the NIA – or even at the NEC - we can bring them together on our IT network.
Delegate Wi-Fi is free and available in all halls, foyer areas and executive meeting rooms. We have laptops, printers, fax machines and ISDN circuits available, plus we have analogue lines for phone, PDQ and fax for use anywhere in the building.
There is always back-up and support available via our fully trained in-house Engineers, both in the run up to an event and onsite during the event. Simply discuss your needs with your Event Manager and we’ll take it from there.
