First off, we’re back at Millennium Point! For many, this was one of the stand out venues for European fighting game tournaments, so it’s a pleasure to announce that we’ll be returning there…There have been a few improvements since the last time – better options for food and better spaces. And yes, comfy cinema seating. And yes, big ass screen.
For those signing up, you’ll simply need a form of photographic ID or proof of your purchase (the PayPal confirmation e-mail displayed on a mobile phone is usually fine – take a print screen!) – but you can also print it off to be extra safe.
For Britain: Millennium Point is a short walk from Birmingham City Centre so travel should be quite easy. Digbeth Coach Station and the Birmingham New Street, Moor St and Snow Hill Train Stations are all within a 10 minute walk.
From the skies: Birmingham Airport, you can get a £3 ticket to Birmingham New Street from right inside the airport…if you’re really lazy, it’s a 15 minute Taxi which should cost no more than £10.
For drivers: Parking is available via NCP car-parks throughout the City Centre. Digbeth is generally your best bet and there are several car parks available charging just £2.50 per day. Roadside parking is free on Sundays and evenings but please pay attention to on-site signage.
My recommendation: Hotel at Conference Aston
Where I stayed last time: Holiday Inn Express | Adagio Apart-Hotel
I’m getting drunk when I lose: Hampton by Hilton | Travelodge (A little further out over on Broad Street, but reasonably priced in club/dining central)
Romantic Choice: Hilton Garden Inn (Pretty with lots of lovely places to eat)
I smell of affluence: Hotel La Tour
Sessionnnnnn: Staybridge Suites
