The conference will be held at the Bethel Convention Centre between Oldbury and West Bromwich. The facility has a large auditorium, several breakout rooms, a restaurant and café, wi-fi, some on-site car parking and great public transport links.
Food & Drink
A selection of food and drinks will be available to purchase during the lunch and dinner breaks from the on-site restaurant and café. We recommend that you pre-book lunch/dinner if you would like to eat in the restaurant. You can do this via the book now button on the website. There will also be outside catering offered on-site. A small selection of restaurants and fast food venues are available a short drive away in Oldbury town centre.
This event is not particularly aimed at children but they are welcome. We want them and you to be comfortable. If they are getting restless, or you want a more private area to feed your baby, there is a room next to the main auditorium available with activities and a live feed from the main stage so you don’t have to miss out. Baby changing facilities are available in the main foyer and the chapel. A ticket will be required for every person attending, except for children under two years old, which may attend for free.
