Venue

Having outgrown the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, the location for the 2024 UK Conference has changed. The Telford International Centre is a family-owned, modern, and versatile venue that offers great spaces in which to hold the UK Conference 2024.

The entire event is all on one level. The plenary sessions will be held in the Ludlow Suite, the Trade Show in Hall 1 opposite, and the Storage Park will be held in Hall 2 which is adjacent to Hall 1.
