We have negotiated a special reduced rate of £100 plus VAT per night for those who want to stay at the Metropole conference venue, and have an allocation set aside for us to cover the conference dates as well as the events
before and afterwards. When you make your conference booking we will send you priority notification of the link, as well as another link for help with booking
alternative accommodation and making travel arrangements. We will be running a TA 101 before the conference and 4 post-conference Workshops afterwards at the Metropole. You will therefore
have the option to include the dates for either of these when you make your bedroom booking. EATA and ITAA Business Meetings, the exams, the TEW, the Presidents Meeting, the annual meeting of ITAA, EATA, UKATA, IDTA, IARTA, will be held at the Metropole as well. If you are attending any of these and not also planning to attend the conference, please contact us if you would like the link to make your bedroom bookings at the specially negotiated rate. Travel to the Metropole If you are arriving at Birmingham Airport, you take the monorail to the nearby Birmingham International Station and from there the Metropole
runs frequent shuttle buses for the short journey to the hotel. If you are arriving by train to Birmingham New Street or Moor Street, continue to Birmingham International Station so you can catch one of
the frequent shuttle buses for the short journey to the Metropole. By road, there is easy access to Birmingham from the M6, M6 Toll, M5, M42 and M54, and the final directions can be seen at https://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/united-kingdom/hilton-birmingham-metropole-BHXMETW/maps-directions/index.html.
