ICO WORLD CUP 2017
Welcome to the ICO World Cup Birmingham, England 2017.
This year’s event will be held in England’s second biggest City to London – Birmingham. Birmingham is a large vibrant City with an International airport linked by great rail and road networks. The venue for the event is situated within a 10 min drive by car or bus from Birmingham Airport. There are a number of large Hotels situated in and around Birmingham Airport that is neighboured with our famous National Exhibition Centre or NEC.
Situated between the Airport and the Exhibition centre is the International train station which will give direct access to Grand Central, New St Station, Birmingham City centre as well as regular trains to London.
Situated at the NEC is RESORTS WORLD, a new building consisting of Hotels, Casino, 10 screen cinema, bars and restaurants, shopping mall etc.… A short trip into the City centre (by train or bus) takes you straight to the well known Bullring, Selfridges, amazing restaurants in Brindley Place, the canal networks and nightlife on Broad Street.
Great places of interest within 30 mins of the hotels are Warwick Castle. Warwick Castle is a medieval castle developed from an original built by William the Conqueror in 1068. Warwick is the county town of Warwickshire, England, situated on a bend of the River Avon. Next is Stratford upon Avon, Birthplace of William Shakespeare. Stratford-upon-Avon, a medieval market town in England’s West Midlands, is the 16th – century birthplace of William Shakespeare. Possibly the most famous writer in the English language, Shakespeare is known for his sonnets and plays such as ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Hamlet’. The Royal Shakespeare Company performs his plays in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and adjacent Swan Theatre on the banks of the River Avon.
