#SpotlightOn: 1864 Suite

Venues which combine a rich heritage, natural daylight and a variety of meeting space, whether for a conference, event, exhibition or breakout space, are hard to come by.

That’s why at Emirates Old Trafford, our intelligent spaces offer the perfect solution for any event.

This month’s edition of #SpotlightOn, focuses on the 1864 Suite, one of the most versatile rooms in the Pavilion.


The 1864 Suite is located in the award-winning Pavilion, and offers a vibrant space which is the ideal location for conferences, dinners, drinks receptions, networking events and event breakout space.

Boasting a private bar and balcony overlooking the famous Lancashire Cricket pitch, the 1864 Suite can be tailored to any event, providing a relaxed atmosphere for up to 200 guests, and offers delegates a breakout opportunity to recharge.

Rich in heritage, the suite was once home to cricket legends Ian Botham, Shane Warne and Andrew Flintoff, toasting their successes, so is the ideal space to inspire and motivate your delegates.

The room is filled with natural daylight, with panoramic windows, which can be covered to suit your needs, and LED lighting options are available for a stylish yet illuminating feel.

If you’re looking for breakout space, the 1864 offers the perfect surroundings and there’s even a bridge link into The Point, so delegates don’t have to step outside. The Point offers modern and elegant event space for up to 1,200 guests.

The 1864 Suite is also a transformable space, ideal if you’re hosting an awards dinner or an intimate celebration, and our in-house Events Team will work with you to your requirements.

If you’re looking for overnight accommodation for your next event, or perhaps you’re hosting a residential conference, look no further than the four-star Hilton Garden Inn. Boasting 150 rooms, 80 of which are pitch facing with balconies, the hotel also offers a Caffè Nero and Garden Grille restaurant and bar, where guests can enjoy a fresh, cooked to order breakfast.

Situated just three miles from the city centre, Emirates Old Trafford is easily accessible by car and public transport too, with a Metrolink stop directly behind the stadium, and 600 on-site car parking spaces.

This year, TheStadiumBusiness Summit returned to Emirates Old Trafford for the third time. The facilities available provide the ideal solution for the multi-day conference, combining a mini-exhibition and conference in The Point, additional conference breakout space in the 1864 Suite and the on-site accommodation at the Hilton Garden Inn.
