Its landscape an eclectic blend of Victorian industrial mills and glass skyscrapers, it is the second most popular destination for meetings and events in the UK, outside London, after Birmingham.

Organisers and PAs looking to plan events in Manchester are confident in its reputation for commitment to customer service and imaginative conferencing. The third largest economy in the UK and the 74th largest in the world, the city has a proliferation of major companies and leading media organisations that ensures a busy events agenda.

A major transport hub, Manchester has some of the busiest railway stations in the UK.

The M60 runs within the Greater Manchester region, providing good inter-suburban transport links, while the A57/A57 (M), popularly known as Mancunian Way, runs from the centre to the south of the city.
