Telford International Centre

More information

Company Bio:

The International Centre, Telford is a stand out venue, centrally located in the heart of the Midlands and with a modern, unbranded interior – it really is the ideal home for large events.

Part of the Southwater Event Group, the venue comprises an on-site production company, catering company and three hotels, two on-site and one in walking distance. Family owned and with an unrivalled attention to detail, our focus is firmly on our clients and achieving exceptional service for every event.

Over 15,000m2 of flexible events space means that the venue is perfect for brand activations, corporate launches, trade exhibitions and large-scale conferences. Whilst being at the heart of the country means that it is easy to get to from right across the UK.

All of this is set amongst one of the most industrious and yet stunning destinations; Shropshire – the birthplace of evolutionist Charles Darwin, the Industrial Revolution, and the home of the UNESCO world heritage site of Ironbridge Gorge.

Ambitious to constantly flex and grow to meet and exceed the aims of modern day event organisers, we have created a vibrant and cosmopolitan event campus. With an investment of £250 million, the pedestrianised Convention Quarter comprises of a new hotel, bars, leisure, restaurants and retail, alongside an urban lake which connects seamlessly to the existing Telford Centre and one of the largest town parks in the UK.

Extending the exclusive feel to our overall Southwater offer, the new Convention Quarter is adjacent to The International Centre and our on-site hotels – easily connecting the venue, Telford town, the train station, and major road routes.

You’re always welcome in Telford.
