The BMetA aims to disseminate information on materials processing and properties to industry and academia in the West Midlands region, primarily through a series of evening lectures. The Association is based in the School of Metallurgy and Materials at the University of Birmingham.

The lectures are usually about forty-five minutes long and attract an audience of between twenty-five and seventy-five, depending on the topic.
