This year's Conference is coming back to Manchester. The Conference and Exhibition will be in the Manchester Central

Manchester Central formally the GMEX Centre is an award-winning venue in the heart of one of Europe's most vibrant cities. Its vaulted arches and station clock have made Manchester Central an iconic city feature for over 130 years.

Manchester has it all. An intoxicating mix of old and new, amazing architecture, fantastic culturally diverse quarters, like Chinatown, the Gay village and the Curry mile. This once industrial metropolis has transformed itself into England’s edgy northern capital – it’s the home of some of Britain’s biggest music legends, iconic landmarks, a thriving arts and culture scene and world-famous sports.

The Conference hotel is the iconic The Midland , 16 Peter Street, Manchester, M60 2DS,  and is just across the road from Manchester Central. This impressive hotel, built in 1903 offers a gym, relaxation pool and spa, details of which can be found on their website

NB There is no parking at The Midland.

There is a 24-hour NCP car park directly below Manchester Central. It has 720 spaces including 18 disabled parking bays and three electric vehicle charging points. There is direct access to Manchester Central by lift, stairs and escalator.
