Manchester is to host two destination showcases in the coming weeks to promote the city as a conference destination.

The first showcase, at The Corinthian Club in Glasgow, will welcome event organisers to learn more about the city at an exclusive networking lunch, while the second showcase will be held at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham.

Nick Brooks-Sykes, director of tourism at Marketing Manchester, said “Manchester’s conferencing offer has gone from strength to strength in recent years. We’ve had some significant international conferences choosing the city, an array of new hotel openings, and a continuing property boom offering up new bars, restaurants and events spaces all across the region. 

“Now we’re heading to Glasgow and Birmingham to spread the message that these growing connections make Manchester an ideal location to host an event with international influence. 

“This, combined with a proven track record of staging outstanding conferences and events, a selection of stunning venues and a variety of leisure options, makes Manchester a world-class conference destination.”

The delegation, led by Marketing Manchester, will consist of representatives from venues including Bolton Whites Hotel and Events, Emirates Old Trafford, Hilton Manchester Deansgate and The Lowry Hotel.
