Dominating the second floor of The BCEC is the Mercian, a dedicated event space in its own right, offering private access and a pre-function reception space overlooking Hill Street.
The pre-function space is ideal for delegate refreshments which include Dowue Egberts coffee, speciality teas and snacks during the day. The two integrated bars within this space, offer a full range of hand-selected red, white and Sparkling wine, local and international beers and signature spirits to provide an ideal gathering point for gala dinners, networking events and private parties.
The Mercian is fully flexible and can be divided into two separate event spaces or used in tandem for a single multi-use event. The function suite features surround sound Bose speakers, an inbuilt 5m NEC screen for presentations and is a blank canvas to accommodate staging, a dancefloor or pod-style exhibition space to create the ideal event that’s right for you.
