Conferences-UK and Emirates Old Trafford celebrate 10-year partnership

Ahead of launching the new Hilton Garden Inn, Emirates Old Trafford has re-signed its agreement with one of the UK’s leading venue finding agencies, Conferences-UK. This year marks the anniversary of a decade-long partnership, which has seen the venue grow into a world-class sporting, music and business destination.

As well as being a prestigious international cricket venue, Emirates Old Trafford is an award-winning, multi-purpose venue which caters for a multitude of events.  With a capacity of 10 to 2000 people, Conferences-UK has a great online platform for Emirates Old Trafford to promote its adaptable event space, accommodating everything from meetings, dinners and training to product launches, conferences and exhibitions.

Construction of the new Hilton Garden Inn at Emirates Old Trafford is already underway, and will complement the impressive conference and event facilities already on site.  The 150-bedroom hotel, 85 of which will be pitch-facing with balconies, is set to welcome its first guests in summer 2017. Simon Thompson director of Conferences-UK says: “Emirates Old Trafford is an event organisers dream. The space it offers is extremely versatile and can be adapted to suit every requirement.  With the Club’s redevelopment, including the addition of the new accommodation coming soon, the venue is set to offer facilities not available anywhere else. It has been a pleasure working with the team of dedicated event managers over the last decade and we’re extremely excited to be part of a new era for this iconic venue.”

With an impressive 43 meeting rooms, on-site free parking, WiFi and easy access from Manchester airport (9 miles), the city centre (3 miles) and via Old Trafford Metrolink (0.2 mile), the venue is highly sought after by small independents as well as international brands.

Angela Hodson, Head of Conference and Events at Emirates Old Trafford added: “We’re really pleased to have signed up with Conferences-UK again for our tenth year.  We have a fantastic working relationship with the team and receive some great enquiries. We’ve had a wonderful decade here at Emirates Old Trafford with a string of high profile events being held every year such as Google, eBay, The X Factor and TheStadiumBusiness Design and Development Summit 2016, to name just a few.  Now, with the completion of our redevelopment in sight, we’re looking forward to hosting many more events in 2017 and beyond such as SOLACE, AutoTrader and Boots.”
