Steeped in history, The Exchange combines grandeur with contemporary flexibility, in an outstanding central location.

Due to open in Autumn 2021, this will be the newest venue in the portfolio of conference and event spaces, managed by the University of Birmingham.

Built in 1933, the pillared aspect of this former Municipal Bank HQ sits opposite Centenary Square, which has recently been transformed with a reflecting pool beside the distinctive Library of Birmingham.

Retaining many of its unique period features, The Exchange’s varied rooms give you the flexibility to transition from important meetings and breakout discussion to press announcements, ceremonies, receptions and dining – all in one central venue.
