Electric Vehicle Charging Stations now available at your conference centre

This week saw the launch of The Priory Rooms’ Electric Vehicle Charging Stations, now available for all conference centre users.


The Priory Rooms have always encouraged visitors to reduce their carbon footprint by travelling on public transport to our city centre venue. In an exciting step forward, The Priory Rooms have invested in Electric Vehicle Charging Stations outside the venue and are even offering delegates a free fill up as a reward to investing in environmentally-friendly electric vehicles.

At the launch was Kevin Cummins from Birmingham City Council’s Sustainability, Transportation & Partnerships Department, who praised The Priory Room’s contribution to reducing Birmingham’s carbon emissions. As a representative of Birmingham City Council’s efforts to improving the sustainability of Birmingham’s transport for future generations, Kevin was delighted to showcase The Priory Rooms’ new chargers by filling up and taking a member of Bull Street Premises Committee, William Waddilove for a spin in an electric car.

The great success of our recent annual conference, held at the Priory Rooms, with over 160 delegates attending, was in no small part due to the very professional and efficient support and attention we received from every member of their team. From our earliest enquiry, through the arrangements in advance, and on the day itself, we were met with a thoroughly helpful, sensitive and ‘can do’ approach which was quietly, efficiently conveyed, and used to overcome the minor things that can go awry in the best prepared of events. A cheerful, welcoming staff, excellent refreshments, and IT services. We will be back!
