Birmingham is the UK's second city, with a population of 1.1 million. Diverse, vibrant and energetic in nature, Birmingham has all the benefits of a major city, but with a city centre which is compact, easy to navigate and walkable. There is plenty to keep participants busy during their stay in the city - museums with over 500,000 pieces of art, the largest public library in Europe, shopping opportunities including the landmark Selfridges building, Harvey Nichols in the Mailbox and many independent boutiques. There are also neighbouring tourist hotspots including Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick. The EMBO Meeting 2015 takes place at the ICC, one of Europe’s high-profile conference venues that typically hosts over 350 meetings and more than 300,000 delegates annually. A central location in the United Kingdom makes it a perfect choice for the conference.
