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.
