Unique Venues of Manchester confirms hybrid event on 1 October
Unique Venues of Manchester (UVM) has confirmed it will run its third UVM EXPO in a hybrid format. The event is scheduled to take place on 1 October, the conditional date on which events may run.
The event will combine both live and virtual experiences, in what promises to be an unmissable showcase for hybrid events, as it aims to attract MICE professionals from the city region, around the UK and internationally.
Delegates can attend the city-centre event at Chamber Space, Manchester, or join online via the Swapcard platform to learn from industry experts from across the UK and connect with colleagues and suppliers, as part of a full day’s programme of speaker sessions, presentations, panel discussions, exhibition, entertainment and one-to-one appointments.
As well as knowledge sharing of international perspectives, the hybrid expo is aimed at event planners and will incorporate Manchester’s top venues, suppliers and industry-leading technology.
Mathew Jayne, the director at Unique Venues of Manchester, and who is behind the event, said: “This type of event has not been done before in Manchester, so it’s all about showcasing fresh possibilities as we reimagine the future in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, as hybrid events such as this one become more commonplace. Throughout the process, we’ll collate our findings and share them with the industry, while asking for feedback and suggestions, with the aim of getting our sector back on track post-Covid-19. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming global events industry experts and event organisers, plus the finest venues, hotels and suppliers across Manchester.”
