Booking meeting rooms in Manchester
The first industrialised city in the world, the dynamic, thriving city of Manchester is rich with history and culture, and second only to London in terms of importance. Meeting rooms in Manchester are booked throughout the year, for anything from international trade fairs to private board meetings. We at Holiday Inn have a number of hotels providing meeting rooms in Manchester, all within easy reach of the airport, railway stations and motorways.
Once a city of “dark satanic mills”, the Manchester of today is clean and vibrant; a leading centre of media, sport, education, commerce and the arts. Not surprisingly, meeting rooms in Manchester are constantly needed, by both local companies and those outside the area.
Reasons to book meeting rooms in Manchester
Manchester is the perfect location for international business conferences. The fastest-growing city in the UK, and the second-best place to have a business after London, it showcases the best that Britain has to offer. Manchester’s wide range of cultural, arts and sporting attractions – including the most valuable football club in the world, Manchester United – is matched by a glittering central business district that is one of the financial hubs of Europe.
Manchester University brings a constant flood of young graduates, keeping the city vibrant, alive and forward-thinking. The central business district is an eclectic blend of architectural delights; Manchester’s rich industrial heritage evident in historic buildings such as the neo-Gothic Town Hall and Piccadilly. Glittering modern towers, such as the Intercontinental building, are pointers of the city’s modern success. Prolonged investment means Manchester is currently undergoing yet more growth, with a number of new towers under construction which, when finished, will be the tallest buildings in Manchester.
Meetings in Central Manchester
The factors driving Manchester’s economy are varied. Financial, retail, health, legal, cultural, media and professional companies all have offices in the Central Business District. Manchester Arndale Centre is the largest shopping mall in the UK; the world’s largest consumer-owned business, the Co-operative Group, is also based here. Obviously, the central business district needs well structured meeting rooms to function.
We at Holiday Inn have several conference hotels with meeting rooms in or near Manchester City Centre. Our Manchester West venue is only minutes away from the International Convention Centre and Manchester Piccadilly rail station, yet is set in pleasant grounds with a Topiary courtyard that is perfect for summer weddings. Salford Quays, Media City, the Lowry Centre and Manchester United football club and Trafford shopping mall are all located close by, with easy accessibility to the motorways and airport.
Meeting rooms outside the city centre
Our Manchester Airport venue is just seven miles from the city centre, and benefits from a nine-room dedicated meeting centre plus a further six fully-serviced meeting rooms. In Manchester Central Park, meanwhile, you can enjoy the benefits of a fully equipped Meeting Academy, with self-contained business centre and even a mini-golf course to relax on afterwards.
Meeting rooms in Manchester are booked for every conceivable purpose, from product launches to fund-raising events. We at Holiday Inn offer a wide range of quality meeting rooms in Manchester hotels, at highly competitive rates.
