The Bridgewater Hall offers unique and exciting spaces for conferences and events in Manchester city centre.

Conferences & Meetings

The Bridgewater Hall provides a unique and exciting environment for conferences and events, with space to accommodate up to 1800 delegates. With superb event facilities and in-house teams boasting a wealth of expertise in running events on all scales, all the support you need is available in-house, and the Conference and Events team will work with you from initial enquiry until event completion to ensure your ideas and inspiration come to life in this special space.


The venue is a great space for exhibitions with a twist, with glass foyer spaces overlooking Manchester city centre. Our function rooms and foyer areas can be combined to provide more space for exhibitors for large exhibitions, or can enable a conference to run alongside a smaller exhibition. The Conferences & Events team will advise you on the best way to utilise the spaces and get the most out of your exhibition.

Receptions, Dinners & Wine Tastings

The venue provides a wonderfully stylish ambience for standing receptions to formal dinners, combining a wide selection of innovative menus designed by our Head Chef, Mark York, with stylish surroundings and professional service.
