Welcome to Manchester's biggest and most flexible event venue. EventCity is the second largest venue outside of London with a total of 28,000 sq m of space, as well as 3,000 free onsite parking spaces and over 1,000 hotel rooms nearby. Since we launched in 2010, our groundbreaking venue in the heart of the North has become the first choice for consumer and trade exhibitions, conferences, dinners, award ceremonies and product launches and is fast becoming the top destination on the global sports and events scene. Our ongoing success has led to a brand new hotel being built on our doorstep to cater for the high number of visitors attending EventCity.
At EventCity, we benefit from our TRAFFORDCITY location which is visited by over 40 million people every year. Surrounded by world-class retail, leisure, entertainment and commercial facilities, from skydiving to skiing, trampolining to treadmills, we are in the midst of a vibrant destination that’s on the doorstep of Manchester City Centre and everything it has to offer. Just 20 minutes from Manchester International Airport, and with direct access to Manchester's motorway links and national rail network, this is a destination that’s altogether different and just waiting to be discovered. Our world class team of professionals, from expert event managers to dedicated kitchen staff, share our passion for delivering excellence in everything we do. That's how we continue to dazzle audiences with our ever expanding schedule of world class shows and exhibitions. But don't take our word for it, come and see for yourself why we're one of the most popular conferencing and events spaces in the UK.
Making life easier for organisers, exhibitors and visitors is EventCity's number one priority. Our experienced event team has a wealth of experience in leisure, entertainment, media, retail and business to business and are dedicated to ensuring that everyone has a first class experience when visiting EventCity, whether they are a client, show guest or corporate partner.
Since our launch in 2011, we’re proud to say EventCity has built a reputation as one of the most popular and exciting events spaces in the UK.
The quality of events we hold here speaks for itself, with iconic names such as The Ideal Home Show, The X Factor, the Caravan and Motorhome Show and many more.
The impressive building was constructed in the late 1990s, and has been used for a variety of commercial purposes before becoming the official public events and exhibition centre it is today. Most notably, in 2010 it was known as the ‘Museum of Museums’ a heritage and ‘edutainment’ venue, marking its first foray into the events and entertainment industry.
Maximising space is our forte, and we’re continually evolving EventCity’s offering to meet the needs of our customers. We recently took 5,850 sq m of floor space and turned it into a cutting edge dedicated conference and dining facility to meet growing demand.
We’ve also invested over £1.5 million into our onsite production kitchen, which means we can now cater for up to 5,000 delegates (within a conference) whilst supplying the other halls with consumer offerings at exhibitions.
We believe our success is down to our unparalleled flexibility when it comes to meeting the needs of our customers and, as one of the fastest growing event spaces in the UK, we’re excited to see what happens next.
