Emirates Old Trafford on the road again!

After a successful event at The Meetings Show held at Olympia London in June of this year Emirates Old Trafford is getting ready to hit the road again to showcase its amazing conferencing and events offering at numerous exhibitions and events.

For the first time in its history, the C&IT Agency Forum will be leaving London, and holding its prestigious event in Manchester in 2017 and Emirates Old Trafford will be there. Being held at Manchester Central on the 2 - 4 August, the Forum will see hundreds of the UK’s leading agencies, venues and event professionals connect and inspire one another through a series of talks and 1-2-1 meetings, highlighting the trends driving the event industry forward in the coming year.

Dan Whitehead, Business Development Manager said: “Attending this year’s Meetings Show was incredible for Emirates Old Trafford. The event at Olympia was bigger and better than ever before with thousands of event managers and professionals passing by and visiting us at our stand.”

Mirroring this sentiment, Nicola Pinder, said: “Attending events such as The Meetings Show and the upcoming C&IT Agency Forum is a fantastic opportunity for Emirates Old Trafford to get the recognition it deserves, and to really let everyone in the industry see how far the venue has developed. We are soon to open our incredible 150 bedroom Hilton Garden Inn hotel, so this is a really exciting time for everyone at Emirates Old Trafford, and we were thrilled that so many Meetings Show attendees shared this excitement when speaking with us.”

By attending and being a part of the C&IT Agency Forum, Emirates Old Trafford will have the opportunity to build connections and bonds with senior event agents and organisers, meaning the venue will continue to host some of the biggest names in the conferences and events industry such as Google, O2 and special events such as The X Factor and The Voice.

Dan continued: “We had an amazingly successful three days in London for The Meetings Show, visited by hundreds of events professionals and prospective delegates, however we are really looking forward to attending a series of other shows in the next few months. The C&IT Agency Forum is renowned in the conference and events world as one of THE leading events shows, and we are absolutely delighted that for the first time ever this year the forum is being held in Manchester. We are more excited than ever to be involved in this year’s forum, and to help showcase the amazing offering that our great city can provide to any event!”

In addition to the C&IT Agency forum, Emirates Old Trafford will also be present at three CHS Independent Venue Roadshows, the first of which was held at The Titanic Hotel, Liverpool on 29 & 30 June. The remaining shows will see the Emirates Old Trafford team travel to the Bedford Lodge Hotel, Newmarket on 14 & 15 September, and Coombe Abbey Hotel, Coventry on 23 & 24 Nov.
