11 Portland Street, Manchester, M1 3HU

Late in 2017, trend-conscious Etc Venues opened a northern outpost in buzzy Manchester. Its new events destination includes a self-contained conference wing with exhibition space and a restaurant with a modish theatre kitchen. As ever, flexibility is key and each of the smaller meeting spaces has manifold configurations. You’ll find all of this up on the eighth floor of 11 Portland Street, where there are dramatic city views and lots of natural light.

Walmley Road, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, B76 1QX

Built as a hunting lodge in the 13th century, New Hall is a picture of medieval splendour. Now part of the Hand Picked Hotels group, it is still accessed by drawbridge. There are crenelated towers and mullioned windows on the outside, but on the inside it’s a well-equipped venue for events. The oak-panelled Great Chamber was built for a visit from Henry VIII and is suitably imposing. Smaller groups should seek out Oak, the once-secret study of the in-house alchemist.

Stratford Road, Solihull, B90 4EB

Part of the Corus group, The Regency offers organisers a range of event spaces. The largest is the ground-floor Four Ashes Suite, which is a popular choice for exhibitions, conferences and parties. We particularly like the Crown Suite, though, which has a private bar and the option to add a dancefloor. For smaller get-togethers, there are five flexible meeting rooms with plenty of natural light. The hotel also has a restaurant, along with a gym and pool.

Striking mock Tudor Victorian-era architecture defines The Chace Hotel. Its event spaces include London’s Restaurant, where mullioned windows and open fireplaces create an impressive backdrop to dinners and receptions. Other smaller function rooms can accommodate meetings or private dinners. Our favourite space, and the largest for sit-down affairs, is the Carnegie Room, which features exposed beams and has its own private bar.

Resorts World, Birmingham, West Midlands, B40 1PU

Advanced tech and flexibility are the bedrocks of this conference centre: Skyfold walls mean physical transformations are measured in minutes; the screens are 4K; and the digital signage and giant media wall are plug and play. Catering partner Amadeus even gives the menus a cutting edge. Vox is part of the Resorts World Birmingham entertainment complex, which includes the NEC and Genting Arena, and is next to the international airport and railway station.
