Eventsinpartnership, our designated accommodation bureau will again be managing all reservations for accommodation this year. They have secured the best government rates from an array of hotels within the vicinity of the venue and have negotiated exclusive rates for NHSBT employees at the Novotel Birmingham and the Hampton Inn by Hilton Hotel.  Both hotels are situated along Broad Street and offer easy access to the ICC.  NHSBT has agreed that these bookings will be managed by EIP instead of EXPOTEL.
