Manchester Central has almost doubled
summer event numbers since 2014.
The North England
venue will have held 79 days of events by the end of this month, up from 40 in
summer 2014, saying the season has been one of the busiest yet. Events such as the consumer shows MCM Comic Con and Bricktastic have helped underline the figures.
Angie Robinson, CEO
of Manchester Central, said: "Although July and August are traditionally
quieter months for events, our venue is busier than ever. That said, we’ve seen
an increase in utilisation all year-round – which led us to break previous records
with our most recent FYE results.
"We continue to
attract some of the world’s leading conferences and exhibitions however
Manchester Central’s reputation for outstanding event delivery is increasingly
appealing to a much wider range of organisers and has allowed us to
successfully expand our scope throughout the last two years."
