The IoD has teamed up with The Grand Hotel, Birmingham to create a business hub for members across the Midlands.

IoD members can use the hotel’s facilities as a drop-in, local base for working and benefit from discounted rates on private meeting rooms, as well as preferential rates on room bookings.

The partnership gives members free access to the hotel’s conferencing and events lounge and complimentary tea and coffee facilities. There is also free access to WiFi.

The facilities are open to members on Tuesdays from 3pm – 5pm, and Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9am – 5pm.

Andy Wilkinson, IoD chair for Greater Birmingham, said: “Our partnership with the Grand Hotel is an excellent addition to the benefits we offer to members. As restrictions continue to ease and the economy bounces back, directors will be looking for flexible, safe and professional locations to work and meet that help them to rebuild and recover from the impact of the pandemic.”

Peter Kienast, general manager for The Grand Hotel, Birmingham, said: “Further to opening our doors after almost 20 years this spring, I am thrilled to welcome West Midlands Institute of Directors to The Grand Hotel. Our team are looking forward to providing the IoD’s members with a truly one-of-a-kind destination in one of the city’s most iconic buildings; the ideal backdrop for networking and businesses meetings.”
