Emirates Old Trafford on the road

Emirates Old Trafford is taking to the road in 2018, helping to spread the message of the incredible Conference and Events spaces on offer at the venue.

Nic Pinder, National Sales Manager, and Dan Whitehead, Corporate Sales and Business Development Manager, will be leading the team as they visit showcases across the county – which started at Aston Villa for the MCOCO on the 19th April.

Angela Hodson, Head of Sales, said: “We’re really passionate about getting out and about to spread the Emirates Old Trafford message.

“We know how strong our Conference and Event spaces are but it’s important to be able to meet prospective clients and agents, who might not otherwise get the chance to meet with us. Showcases such as the CHS and Meetings Show are a great opportunity for this.”

The Emirates Old Trafford team will be attending the following upcoming shows:

  • MeetGB: 19th - 20th April, Hilton London Bankside
  • Conference and Hospitality Show: 24th April, First Direct Arena Leeds
  • IMEX: 15 – 17th May, Messe Frankfurt
  • Unique Venues of Manchester – The Lowry - Tuesday 5th June
  • Independent Venue Roadshow: 7 – 8th June, Newbury Racecourse Berkshire
  • CHS Independent Road-Shows, June/Sep/Nov 2018
  • The Meetings Show: 27 – 28th June, Olympia London
  • MIA Agents Day: 16th August, Eithad
  • MIA Agent Hosted Dinner: 22nd November
  • IBTM – 27th-29th November 2018

“If you’re attending any of the showcases, come say hi!” Adds Angela.

“Our team will be able to guide you through what’s on offer at the venue, including the Hilton Garden Inn hotel, and show you how to make the most of a business trip to Manchester.”

Emirates Old Trafford can cater to an array of events, conferences and exhibitions from ten to 2,000 people across a wide selection of room styles. In 2017, the events team delivered for high-profile clients such as Solace, John Lewis and Google – a testament to the versatility, flexibility and reputation of the venue, all the while maintaining impressive standards of hospitality and catering.

In addition, summer 2017 saw the introduction of a brand-new hotel on site – giving Emirates Old Trafford yet another dynamic for guests.

The four-star Hilton Garden Inn, located on site, helps to serve the growing numbers of business and leisure visitors in Manchester. The accommodation perfectly complements the impressive conference, event and hospitality facilities already on-site, offering 150-bedrooms, 85 of which are pitch-facing with balconies with stunning views over one of cricket’s best known venues – adding to the superb hospitality offering for concerts, Lancashire Cricket and England fixtures.

The accommodation is suitably designed for any guest, including fully accessible spaces and adjoining rooms for families. Whether you’re visiting Manchester for business, leisure or event hospitality, everything you need is in one place.

The Hilton Garden Inn at Emirates Old Trafford also offers its guests a breakfast and dinner at the Garden Grille restaurant, relaxing bar, 24-hour resident’s gym, Wi-Fi enabled business centre and bridge link to conference and event facilities – enabling businesses to run multi-day conferences and making it the perfect choice for any guest.
