Following the success of its London exhibition, Venues and Events Live will introduce its inaugural Manchester event on 23rd and 24th September at Manchester Central Convention Complex. With 67% of visitors to the London 2018 show reported to organise events outside London, Ocean Media, which acquired the show in 2018 made the decision to bring the exhibition to the north.

In excess of 2,500 industry professionals are expected to attend the free-to-register event set to host over 120 industry exhibitors including hotels, venues, bars, restaurants and event suppliers.

Venues and Events Live exhibitors already confirmed include Liverpool Football Club, The Lowry Hotel, Hever Castle, H&E North, Tate Liverpool, The Jockey Club, The Renaissance Hotel Manchester and Giraffe Event Solutions. Guest speakers and hands-on masterclasses seek to provide industry training and offer inspiration for corporate event planners.
