Europe’s youngest city – Birmingham – is an energetic business hub in the heart of the Midlands, and the UK, noted for its down-to-earth atmosphere. The city’s residents, affectionately known as ‘Brummies’ come from a diverse cultural mix. This has created a youthful and enthusiastic workforce, with a quarter of the UK’s advanced engineering skills base located here. Birmingham is famous for its industry and spirit of invention. The industrial revolution was born in the city, which is still a centre for advanced engineering and manufacturing. The automotive and aerospace sectors are booming, with some massive global players such as Jaguar Land Rover and GKN leading the way. Other major clusters include high-growth life sciences and ICT, creative and digital services; professional and financial services (Birmingham is home to more than 300 company HQs); and major food and drink firms. From a business viewpoint, things can only get better with 26 sites identified for investment in these sectors. This future-facing city, with its great transport connectivity, is equally well served by Regus, which offers fully equipped offices, meeting rooms and support in six locations – the central business district, the commercial heart of Broad Street, Fort Dunlop, out of town at the NEC/Airport and Blythe Valley Park, and a walk-in Regus Express at Staples in Aston Cross.
