We’re delighted to announce BLOC Hotels is returning as a main partner for this year’s design festival. The brand has a strong local presence and shares our love for design.
BLOC has hotels in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter aswell as Gatwick Airport. And they are developing their new flagship, Grand Central hotel, with New Street Station on its doorstep. If you’ve ever stayed at BLOC you’ll know their rooms are beautifully designed and based on fresh thinking, using innovative design and construction techniques to create small, chic, perfectly-formed rooms for people who appreciate quality but don’t always need the fuss of a traditional luxury hotel. So just because you won’t find an over-blown restaurant, spa or conference facility, doesn’t mean you’ll have to compromise on style or a really good night’s sleep. BLOC gives you the best of what you do need and none of what you don’t.
BLOC’s support means we can focus on bringing world class talent to the city over the course of the four days in June and as a bonus there will be special offers for people looking attend the festival, too.
BLOC’s Managing Director, Rob Morgan, said:
“We are delighted the theme of this year’s festival is ‘truth’. That’s at the heart of everything we do at BLOC Hotels…especially in a design context. We work with the world’s best innovators. People who stay true to their belief that good design is for all. It should never compromise on quality, nor cost the earth.
Birmingham deserves its reputation for responsible, cutting edge design. That’s why our first hotel was designed and built here and why we are investing in our Grand Central development which will take our brand to a different level in a city we know is going places.”
