This question has been asked countless times, ICB do surveys all the time and at the head branch meeting every year London has been chosen as the destination.
ICB have listened to the views but the majority of members have always picked London
Coming from Scotland Birmingham (which is still south England and just as expensive) was suggested at one point and most Scottish people preferred to go to London. As a Scottish member, I would prefer London as it is the Capital of the UK and the most central to the highest amount of members.
ICB has the aspire tours which are held across the country.
I must admit I go because it is in London. I notice your not a member or a student so you will not have received the surveys.
