The University of Manchester Conferences and Venues, Manchester

Large scale venues for national and international conferences, as well as year round day meetings and dinners in very inspiring settings, in one of the UK’s most exciting cities.

Our facilities are suitable for up to 675 delegates year round and up to 1000 delegates during vacation. Our accommodation includes our 3 star AA rated hotel, and our halls of residence offer a range of budget accommodation during the summer vacation.   We provide a range of support services to ensure that events are successfully managed from the initial enquiry to the event itself. These include a dedicated sales team who will match your requirements to the right venue and event co-ordinators who are on hand in the run up to the event and who will assist you on the day. We also offer Confercare: a tailor-made delegate registration service, which helps take the stress out of organising an event providing assistance with online registration, website development, and accommodation bookings for delegates.

Our selection of contemporary menus have been designed to provide delegates with nutritionally balanced, delicious food and can accommodate any special dietary requests. Whether you want private dining for a few or for an international conference, our team have the menu to suit any requirement.
