Notes to editors

Notes to editors: ABOUT MILLENNIUM POINT AND THE MILLENNIUM POINT CHARITABLE TRUST Opened in 2001, Millennium Point is the largest landmark millennium project in England, outside of London. Inside, it is home to unique event spaces including a 350-capacity auditorium, flexible workspaces, meeting rooms and offices, and tenants, including ThinkTank and Birmingham City University (BCU). All of the commercial activity that takes place in the Millennium Point building feeds back into the Millennium Point Charitable Trust, enabling the charity to donate, invest and facilitate more than £3.25m to STEM-related organisations, projects and initiatives in the West Midlands, during 2022. Situated opposite the new HS2 Curzon Street Station, Millennium Point and the Millennium Point Trust champion and facilitate meetings and partnerships between businesses, educators and the next generation of STEM leaders across the region.
