Why choose Manchester for your next Association Event

As one of the most vibrant cities in the UK, Manchester is a hive of activity with a rich industrial heritage. Boasting an extensive Metrolink network, four major railway stations, a fantastic taxi network for easy door-to-door travel and an airport for international visitors, Manchester is a highly accessible city. It’s the perfect city to host an association conference given its central location.

Looking for an all-encompassing venue for your next event? Our intelligent event suites provide the ideal space for your next conference and our venue can accommodate all varieties of event. Whether you’re opting for a theatre-style, classroom, boardroom, classroom, exhibition or banqueting layout, all our spaces can be adapted to suit your needs.

A unique venue at the home of Lancashire Cricket, we offer a number of award-winning, intelligent event spaces that can cater from ten to 2,000 guests. Our in-house expert team, with over 35 years of event experience in delivering world-class events, offer unrivalled customer service and will ensure that all your event requirements are taken care of, from catering right through to managing the event on the day.

The Point is the largest event space at Emirates Old Trafford, and can be sub-divisible into three areas, ideal for large events that have multiple concurring activities. As an intelligent and blank canvas, the space is adaptable and can be tailored to suit any needs. The reception is the ideal space to check-in your guests and can be branded accordingly, and the private Mezzanine Bar overlooking The Point offers the perfect setting for reception drinks or additional breakout space.

And, for smaller events, the history laden Pavilion can accommodate up to 700 people across its five suites and nine executive boxes and can be combined with The Point as breakout spaces for large events.

When organising an association conference, arranging accommodation is crucial. At Emirates Old Trafford you can make your event all-inclusive, with the on-site four-star Hilton Garden Inn, boasting 150 bedrooms and innovative bridge links connecting the buildings so your guests don’t even have to step outside.

Business events thrive on innovation and knowledge, so why not organise an expert keynote speaker for your next association event? A fantastic way to engage your delegates and create a stand-out ‘TED Talk’ session, Manchester boasts strengths in pharmaceutical sectors; life sciences; creative, digital and technology; and advanced manufacturing.

Emirates Old Trafford is ideal for your next association event, with free on-site parking and excellent transport links. Situated just ten minutes from the city centre, twenty minutes from Manchester Airport for international visitors and with the Hilton Garden Inn, Emirates Old Trafford is Manchester’s complete business venue.
