Check out the newly opened and renovated spaces making a debut this summer.
Emirates Old Trafford | Manchester
Emirates Old Trafford has announced the up-and-coming launch of its new hotel extension and event space later this year, which will complete the £75 million redevelopment over the past 15 years into a world class multi-purpose venue, based in Manchester.
The investment will see the new and extended hotel integrate closer with the existing event spaces, opening further options for organisers and creating an event destination in its own right. The venue already includes The Point, an award-winning event space – which is column-free and has a capacity of up to 1,200 – with seven metre windows allowing for unrivalled and unimpeded panoramic views of the world-famous cricket pitch. Together, the venue will now offer even more options for planners looking at multi-day events, large-scale conferences, experiential events, exhibitions, gala dinners and awards, incentives, and team building.
