Reopening from Monday, 6th of July, Edgbaston Events has created a six-point plan that has been designed to provide greater reassurance to all delegates in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

  2. Hygiene and Cleanliness – new and improved cleaning procedures and providing a high level of hand sanitiser dispensers
  3. Contact Free Catering – pre-packaged food and drink prepared on-site with increased safety and maintaining Edgbaston’s outstanding range of fresh produce
  4. Enhanced Technology – increased options for clients, including video conferencing, live streaming and virtual tours
  5. Staff Fully Trained – all staff working to new operational procedures and have PPE tailored to their role
  6. Communication – regular updates from our events team throughout the planning process

Maria Jones, Head of Conference & Events Sales at Edgbaston Events, said: “Our 6th July reopening date is something that we’ve been working towards throughout this lockdown period, and these new working plans have been developed following close consultation with our established clients, our partners within Compass Group, Lime Venues Portfolio and Levy Restaurants, and our technology partner PTI.

I wished to get in touch to say thank you for providing the centrepieces for the Gloucestershire Live Business Awards and working with us within our budget at such short notice. I also wanted to let you know that your staff was a pleasure to work with. Very friendly, professional and had the room setup with plenty of time to spare before guests arrived. Please pass on my thanks.

Louise Symonds, Regional Events Manager

I just wanted to drop a note to formally thank you for pulling out all of the stops for our Christmas Social – the Peaky Blinders theme went down a storm and it looked UNREAL! The decor, props, bespoke items and attention to detail really made the event last night. As ever, you and the team were complete professionals and a dream to work with. Huge thanks and appreciation, I look forward to the next event already!

Clair Stevens, Communications Manager

The room looked fab and we received some great comments. It was great to work with you again and it makes things run smoothly when we can rely on you and your team to get the job done. Gives peace of mind.

Sharon Bone, Events Manager

WOW, went to an event done by these guys and I was blown away. They transformed a banquet hall into something out of a fairytale. The staff are very friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Amish Thakrar, Marketing Manager

Thank you to you and your team for all your help and support with the table theming for our UK 60-Year Anniversary celebration last night. Right from the very beginning, everything was so very professional and easy. The tables, gifts and award were absolutely fabulous and really added to the whole ambience of the evening, and I have had many wonderful comments about them from our visitors.
