Manchester is historically notable for being one of the world's first industrialized cities, and for the subsequent central role it played during the Industrial Revolution.
Manchester is the ‘Capital of the North’, and is a centre of the arts, media, higher education and commerce, and is also considered by many of its citizens to be England's second city. It is the third most visited city in the United Kingdom, only being beaten by London and Edinburgh.
The city is also well known for its sporting connections, being associated with two major Premier League football teams, Manchester City and Manchester United, and internationally renowned as having hosted the XVII Commonwealth Games in 2002.
With a large range of conference and exhibition space, ranging from the chic Lowry Centre to the sprawling Manchester Central, Manchester can accommodate for all event sizes. The city also offers a diverse range of unique venues and hotels from world-renowned brands such as Hilton and Radisson Edwardian to one off boutique hotels.
Manchester is a bright and vibrant city that never fails to impress.
