Park Regis, the deluxe Birmingham city centre hotel, is to relaunch its conferencing facilities, with a remodelled space boasting 360° views across the city.
The £650,000 investment in the 16th floor facility will see a new 1,250 sq ft open-plan conference space with floor-to-ceiling windows, accommodating up to 240 delegates on the one floor alone.
Meanwhile, the 15th floor – where the existing conference facilities are – will be transformed to create additional meeting rooms and break-out areas, as well as a new bar area.
In total, the four-star Park Regis will be able to accommodate 500 conference delegates on floors 15 and 16, said Mark Payne general manager.
“This is a significant investment for us and it will ensure that we remain one of the foremost city centre hotel venues for conferences and business events,” he said.
“It has given us an opportunity to completely rethink our conference offering and we are excited by our plans because it will really enhance our existing facilities. Whether businesses and organisations are planning day events or overnight conferences, we are confident that Park Regis will continue to deliver unparalleled corporate facilities and services to delegates.”
As well as new conference space, delegates will be able to use a dedicated entrance – separate to the hotel – on floor one on the corner of Broad Street, which will take them directly to the 15th floor where there will be a new welcoming reception and cloakroom area.
Overnight guests will be able to leave their luggage at the reception and it will be taken to their rooms while they attend the conference.
“The idea is to make the whole conferencing experience as easy and as enjoyable as possible for everyone,” added Mark. “We’re looking forward to unveiling the new space in the summer.”
The new space will be fitted out by Tang Interiors, a group company of Birmingham-based Colmore Tang Construction, which specialises in refurbishment and interiors for the commercial, retail, restaurant and hospitality sectors.
