BIRMINGHAM, England - Hilton Birmingham Metropole, one of the largest conference and event venues in England, hosted a unique evening for event organizers and meeting planners on Thursday, August 29 2013 with a Grand Prix themed event.

The hotel, together with preferred supplier MCL, hosted a bold open evening to showcase the hotel's capabilities and the latest in audio visual technology. The evening was attended
by more than 250 people who had the opportunity to experience a large range of features from large screen displays to 3D demonstrations and Smartphone apps, which can be tailormade for any type of event and a remarkable food and beverage offer from the hotel. 

"Hosting more than 1,800 successful conferences and events each year, these types of events are a great testament to our facilities. We proved tonight that we can host any kind of conference, whilst delivering top-class service to our clients and also produce successful and impressive events. We managed to achieve that mainly due to a fabulous technology display from our partner, MCL, and I am truly delighted the evening was a resounding success for all attendees," said Patrick Stapleton, general manager of Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

Those attending the evening had the opportunity to test their F1 driving skills whilst enjoying the most advanced technology features associated with meetings and events. Several competitions and live music entertainment were also on the agenda.
