EventCity focus on the future, on tour

Multipurpose event venue EventCity in Manchester has been delivering a taste of its offering to the front door of a selection of top agents around the UK as part of its #EventCityInYourCity campaign. 

The EventCity team launched the 1,500-mile tour in its home city at Confex Future Focus, 4-5 July 2018.

From Manchester, the EventCity team headed to Liverpool, Leeds and London in branded vehicles to introduce agents to the venue’s new in-house catering offering, The Kitchen, and deliver presentations on its new vision and enhanced meeting, conference and exhibition products, as well as information on the regeneration and infrastructure developments of its TraffordCity home.

Simon Jones, sales director, EventCity, met up again with the Confex team at the Sticky Wicket industry charity cricket event, 11 July, where EvenCity was sponsoring the traditional summer event at The Hub in Regent’s Park.

“This is the perfect time to take EventCity on the road to share the latest news with our agency partners,” said Jones.

“TraffordCity is benefitting from a £3bn investment programme over the next five years, which includes the addition of the new Metrolink line connecting us to Manchester Airport and the City Centre. This addition and the huge investment in the area is already starting to attract a great deal of interest and enquiries for our venue,” he added. 




From London, the tour continues to Cheshire, the Midlands, and Newbury Racecourse in Berkshire, where the team will introduce EventCity to the attendees of a speed dating event.

The tour heads back north to Yorkshire and finally to Manchester, where it will conclude on 20 July.

EventCity is located in TraffordCity, six miles from Manchester city centre. TraffordCity is the new mixed-use destination brand for the area encompassing intu Trafford Centre and its surrounding 3.5m sqm of retail, leisure and office space, including 1,000 hotel bedrooms.

Around £3bn is expected to be invested into TraffordCity over the next 20 years by Peel Land and Property, its investors, stakeholders and partners.

Recent investments include a new £41m flagship motor centre by Williams Group and TFGM is bringing the £350m Trafford Park Metrolink line to TraffordCity by 2020.

EventCity is owned by The Peel Group and is the UK’s largest venue in the north and the second largest venue outside London with a total of 28,000sqm of flexible and versatile space
