“We are absolutely delighted to welcome etc.venues Manchester into the Venues of Excellence collection.” comments Mandy Jennings, Executive Director of Venues of Excellence. “It’s in a fabulous location where you can experience the sensation of being above the city, taking in the panoramic views from the peaceful 8th floor over the bustling streets below. The venue offers 18 contemporary and stylish rooms of various sizes including a conference wing for up to 300 delegates with its own entrance, catering and exhibition space. It also has a theatre kitchen and restaurant where their own chefs serve delicious fresh food and the easy to use all-inclusive packages include all day grazing and unlimited tea and coffee.”
Situated in Manchester’s Piccadilly District, the venue is perfectly suited for meetings, training events and conferences.
