Why choose Manchester for your next event?

Manchester may be well known for its rich industrial heritage, but this city has so much more to offer than converted textile factories. The unofficial ‘Capital of the North’ is home to a huge number of eclectic bars, galleries, museums, and restaurants. Whether you’re catching a show at The Lowry or acquainting yourself with the animals at world-famous Chester Zoo there’s plenty to do in this modern city.

Venue and room hire in Manchester is filled with possibilities. Full of surprises, Manchester only continues to get better with age. The warehouses and factories of times past have been utilised to create trendy urban hire spaces. Manchester’s friendly, approachable residents are sure to make you feel at home, whatever your venue hire needs.

When choosing between the best event venues Manchester has to offer, there are naturally a few things you need to consider. Like most things related to business, budget is probably the most essential. Figure out how much money you have to play with before you get started, then search for the best venues for hire in Manchester in that price-bracket using our filters.

You’ll need to consider location as well: are you looking for somewhere in Deansgate, the Northern Quarter or city centre, or might you consider a venue on the fringes of the city, which could be less expensive? The layout and audio visual facilities of a venue are important as well.

It’s also important to consider catering: will you want to lay on some kind of reception? Are you planning on having food at the event? Some venues will be happy to serve food from their own kitchens, while others will need you to supply catering separately.

What is VenueScanner Concierge?

If you’re booking from a corporate background, then our Concierge service could be one for you. 

First thing to remember is that it’s free to use. Simply get in touch explaining a little about your requirements, and our Concierge team will get to work immediately; drawing up a shortlist of venues that match your needs and negotiating the best possible rates with all of them.

Once we’ve whittled it down to a handful of options, we’ll curate a spreadsheet so that you can pick your favourite without having to devote hours of effort to the cause. We keep everything 100% transparent - so we communicate, but you’ll see everything that we discussed - and we’ve got a trusted selection of event suppliers who we can recommend if you need that too.

We aim to have you booked in within a week of your first enquiry, so it’s a good one to consider if you’re pressed for time.
