Verity Venue’s View:
When we were invited to Event City’s Christmas event we cannot deny we were excited! Owned by Peel Holdings creators of the Trafford Centre and Media City well known for exceptional quality we knew it would be good, what we didn’t expect was a full size fun fair, amazing evening entertainment, fun casino and snow covered real Christmas trees nestled amongst log cabin bars!
Post Christmas this venue is still a real asset to the North, it’s the second largest venue outside of London offering 28,000 sq metres of prime exhibition space all on one level.
For large dinners and award ceremonies look no further than Event City – working with their partner Smart Hospitality the venue can cater for 5000 guests and offers 3000 FREE carparking space with 60 coach bays, at last Manchester now has a venue that can cater for larger numbers and can do this well.
Exhibitions and Conference Space
I was particularly impressed with the team at Event City as they understood the financial risk of hosting a large scale event and they can split the venue into four halls which allows organisers to grow their event with little risk if numbers exceed or fall below expectations. Plus for public events they offer free marketing packages to 38 million consumers.
It’s a very versatile space that can offer seminar halls, break out areas, exhibition space and catering, with all the latest technology on hand. This venue is perfect for your next exhibitions, conference, concert or large scale dinner/award ceremony – contact us today to secure great rates.
Anything else to add that makes this venue special
It’s also called the ‘Magic Box’ because you can transform it to your event.
300o free car parking spaces makes a refreshing change.
Well trained and friendly team
