Located in the heart of the North, Emirates Old Trafford is surrounded by the vibrant city of Manchester. No matter how big your conference is, the transport links that are available means delegates from far and wide can attend. Whether it be a flight into Manchester Airport, a train into Manchester Piccadilly (or one of the many other train stations), a bus or tram, Emirates Old Trafford’s location is more than accessible. Manchester is known for being its quirky self - the funky bars, high-end restaurants and general buzz in the atmosphere is what has made it the capital of the North.

Emirates Old Trafford’s Hilton Garden Inn has been open since September 2017 and has been the perfect addition to our venue. Your conference delegates have the option to stay over rather then travel after a full day of networking, or, if your conference is multi-day, delegates don’t need to worry about searching for nearby accommodation.

All conferences differ from the next, whether you are showcasing a new product, are hosting lectures, seminars, group discussions, small meetings, an exhibition, you’ll need space. Emirates Old Trafford has plenty of space available that can be adapted into the exact layout you need. Whether it’s one large room, a few open spaces or small, more private areas - we can transform the space accordingly. As well as the large amount of internal space, we also have external space that’s perfect for breakout sessions and summer events.
