This gorgeous, landmark hotel was originally opened by Isaac Horton back in 1879 to designs by Thomson Plevins.  Since then, it’s welcomed royalty and rock stars and has been a hub in the city for meetings and networking as well as incredible events in the breath-taking Grand Ballroom.

Following a £50 million restoration and refurbishment, Birmingham’s original grande-dame hotel re-opened in May 2021, having been closed for almost 20 years. As the latest chapter in their history takes shape, we hope you will be a part of it by joining us for the DFK UK & Ireland Annual and Emerging Leaders Conference.

We look forward to seeing you there.
