Host City

Birmingham is the UK’s second largest city and lies at the heart of the West Midlands, famed to be the cradle of the Industrial Revolution. Its five universities include the University of Birmingham with a strong focus on Power Systems. Major cultural institutions include the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Repertory Theatre, and its Library. With 571 parks, more than any other city in Europe, and more miles of canal than Venice, the City has a rich diversity, offering Michelin dining to award-winning street food. Birmingham is easily accessible by road, rail and air.

The Colloquium Venue

Originally called the Kingston Buildings, the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s conference centre in Birmingham, was renamed Austin Court in honour of Herbert Austin, later Lord Austin of Longbridge, the pioneering Midlands car manufacturer. Situated canal-side in the heart of the Midlands Industrial heritage, and on the main junction of Birmingham’s canal system, this Grade II listed building has a waterside ambience.
