We Have The Perfect Venue for You

As event management specialists, it’s our job to fulfil all that you desire for your event. Whether you’re in need of a venue for a Christmas party, a work’s conference, networking event, charity boxing night or awards show, Connect In can make that dream a reality. Did you know that we have a free venue finding service to find the best place to host an occasion to remember?

By choosing Connect In to give you a helping hand, we’re able to negotiate rates on your behalf to ensure you’re receiving the best possible event suited to your budget and needs.

It’s easy to stick with something familiar when it comes to hosting an event or conference. If it’s comfortable and you know it works then why change that?

Well because change is known to have a positive impact on your working life. Changing things up every once in a while can supply that much-needed freshness to get your creative juices flowing, and have engaging conferences with a fresh mind to rekindle interest once more. If every meeting, Christmas party or business field trip was the same as the last, then let Connect In Events help you make the next time, one to remember.

If it’s accommodation that you’re looking for, we can help with that, too. We have existing relationships with plenty of hotels across the nation to make sure we can offer our clients exactly what they’re looking for. From Boutique to Heritage, we can help with group bookings to suit your company’s environment.

We also work closely with a number of wonderful and unique venues all over the nation and each one is perfectly unique to suit every type of event.

I’ve shortlisted a few of our personal favourites below:

Meeting Spaces, Fine Dining & Stylish Overnight Stays

Hilton Manchester Deansgate

The Hilton Deansgate dominates the Manchester skyline for miles and miles and it’s interior is just as impressive. Home to Manchester’s first skyline bar, Cloud 23, Hilton Deansgate can not only offer you a comfortable and chic night’s sleep in the heart of Manchester, but also can host up to 600 guests in their Deansgate Suite.

“From annual conferences, product launch events and exhibitions to dinner dances, charity balls and Bar Mitzvahs, when it comes to creating a sense of occasion, there’s nowhere quite like the Deansgate Suite. Large enough to seat 600 with a ceiling height of seven metres, this makes it versatile, equally suited to stage equipment and rigging, or divided into three for more smaller gatherings.”

Hotel Football Old Trafford

A United fan’s dream venue, Hotel Football was created in 2015 by five former MUFC players, and is located directly next door to Old Trafford Football Stadium. Inclusive of a rooftop five-a-side pitch, a basement bar complete with pool tables and an array of function rooms to suit every occasion. Even if it isn’t football related.

“Enjoy an event to remember in the Stadium Suite. This impressive space is suitable for any occasion, from hosting a gala dinner or award ceremony to a wedding for up to 250 guests. Overlooking Old Trafford Football Stadium, the prestigious backdrop will not fail to inspire.”

Great John Street Hotel

An old school house, this Hotel is oozing with personality and class. From elegant rooftop lounges to a library designed with influences from Ralph Lauren, this venue really has everything to offer.

Only a stone’s throw from Manchester’s most exclusive shopping areas, restaurants and theatres, this original Victorian school house has been transformed into a luxury townhouse hotel with unique, individually designed bedrooms and suites alongside stylish lounges, such as the ground floor Oyster Bar and the southfacing Rooftop Lounge and Playground.

Large Meeting Spaces

O2 Victoria Warehouse

Recently taken over by O2 as part of the Academy Music Group, Victoria Warehouse is a true gem in the city. Complete with hotel rooms, conference rooms and the infamous Cotton Sheds which can comfortably fit up to 5,000 people. Often used for product launches, Victoria Warehouse is a perfect blank canvas we can work with to transform any event into its own unique theme.

“Parking for up to 2,000 cars, coach drop off points, onsite taxi rank, excellent public transport and motorway links, over 1,000 hotel rooms within walking distance, bespoken catering options including retail units and up to 100mb Wi-Fi all make Victoria Warehouse the perfect venue for consumer shows. Access to our huge multi-segmented database, social media channels along with our superior sales and marketing team and their dedication to making your event a success means you’re in good hands.”
