A listing of the Hotels can be found below.

All requests for accommodation must be received on the Registration Form with appropriate payment (this may be in the form of a credit card guarantee). All rates are inclusive of breakfast and value added tax, unless otherwise stated.


To book your accommodation you may provide either:

i) your credit card number (the card will NOT be charged by the Conference Secretariat and will be forwarded to the hotel, who will charge it on your arrival or departure.  If you fail to arrive, a charge may be made by the hotel, according to the hotel’s cancellation policy)


ii) a deposit of 1 night’s stay at your hotel

The accommodation account (less the deposit paid including any extras) is payable by you directly to the hotel on your departure. A receipt for all accommodation costs will be available from your hotel on departure. 

Please Note:

Guidance on discounted late bookings

The Organisers have endeavoured to obtain the best rates possible.  However, it may be possible for individuals to obtain cheaper rates if bookings are made shortly before the Conference, either via agencies on the Internet or direct to a hotel.  If you decide to make your own arrangements for accommodation, your request for rates for late bookings should be directed to the hotel of your choice and will be subject to availability.

Bed and Breakfast Accommodation

If the Hotels listed by the Conference do not appeal, visit www.beinbirmingham.com where bed and breakfast options can be found. 

For convenience of booking at the same time as Registering, the Organisers have made block bookings with a range of hotels as local to the ICC as possible. (The charges are per night - inclusive of breakfast and VAT unless otherwise stated)
