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.

Delegates can commute from their chosen accommodation using one of the UK’s most successful tram systems.

It serves commuter routes into and out of the city centre, with stops including Beetham Tower (the Hilton Deansgate) and Piccadilly Gardens for the Northern Quarter and main retail district.

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. Other main motorways include the M56 for Birmingham and the M62 for Liverpool.
