BIRMINGHAM BREAKS

Birmingham—England’s second largest city is the cradle of the Industrial Revolution.  It is where James Watt and other 18th century Lunar Society ‘lunatics’ converged under the approving full moon to roll out and instigate the revolution that forced and egged England and the whole world into a new era, the modern times. Birmingham is tagged as the Workshop of the World.  It also enjoys the nickname, the City of a Thousand Trades.

While Birmingham’s shoulders have continued to bear the weight of the post-industrial revolutionary yokes and the desolation brought about by the Nazi Luftwaffe bombing in World War II, the place has successfully moved on and inched slowly forth to mold a convention city that serves as a venue to 80% of all trade exhibitions in all of England.
