The Edgbaston Park Hotel.

We are taking EQ Connects to a new region of the UK!

​Following our first conference in Newcastle upon Tyne (2019), we are now moving to Birmingham, the UK’s second city.

​​Birmingham’s rich veins of innovation and creativity helped spark the industrial revolution – and continue to drive Britain forward. The city is now a beacon for international investment, the UK's top regional centre for conferences, and boasts a vibrant economy with strengths in manufacturing, engineering, financial services, logistics, life sciences and digital technology.  A perfect location to welcome our domestic, European and international delegates.


EQ Connects 2022 will take place at the Edgbaston Park Hotel, Birmingham. 

Edgbaston Park Hotel and Conference Centre is part of the University of Birmingham Group. The University of Birmingham, one of the world’s top 100 institutions, has always been a pioneer: founded in 1900, it was the UK’s first civic university, welcoming students regardless of their social or religious background. Today, it continues to make important things happen. It’s a vibrant community which thrives on being innovative, original and ambitious
