Welcome to Convention

Lion Boris

Birmingham - 1-3 May 2020

As Chairman of the 2020 Host Committee, it is my honour to invite you to Birmingham – the home of music (metal, rock, new romantic, reggae), the birthplace of the industrial revolution, the Balti and the Peaky Blinders.

A truly cosmopolitan city where you will experience a rich history and diverse cultures, stunning architecture, majestic waterways, museums and of course indulge in the Birmingham shopping experience. We have a plethora of places of interest within walking distance to your Hotel and Convention centre.

Full details of the local attractions and places of interest will be available on the Host Committee Welcome Desk in the Convention Centre.

We have put together an entertainment programme which we hope will suit all tastes.

For Friday night we have our Peaky Blinder night of fun and song to celebrate Brum’s heritage.

Go and get your flat cap and join in the fun. On Saturday our Gala Dinner will be a little more formal but fun with some music from the musicals and plenty of time to dance the night away.

We look forward to enjoying the weekend as your Hosts and ensuring you enjoy your stay.

Should you have any issues though please contact me or any member of the Host Committee – easily spotted by our eye catching waistcoats. 

You are therefore requested and required to join us, by order of the Peaky B-Lion-ders.
