Forget London, Manchester is the ultimate location for venue hire . It has all the advantages of a major city, without the hefty price tag that accompanies venue rental in Britain’s capital. Manchester is often referred to as Britain’s ‘second city’, due to the wealth of opportunities for both established businesses and smaller, up and coming companies. Manchester’s universities continue to attract the brightest academic talents from across the UK and from the wider global community, and the city’s reputation as a place of innovation and creative thought only becomes more cemented. Manchester’s contributions to science and technology are numerous, while the art, music, theatre and film that originated in Manchester since the 1970s have forever altered the cultural landscape of the UK.
Hiring a corporate venue in London involves paying premium prices for space hire, parking, and accommodation. Savvy companies will look elsewhere, for locations that allow their budgets to stretch further whilst still providing guests with an unforgettable experience. Forward-thinking businesses are already challenging the London-centric status quo and choosing the hold events in locations that offer more competitive rates for everything from catering to décor.
Venue hire in the heart of Manchester city centre is diverse and interesting. From the trendy areas of the Northern Quarter, home to craft beer pubs and quirky cocktail bars, to the sleek, stylish Deansgate area, there’s a venue to suit every requirement. Many venues offer packages that include catering, décor, furniture and corporate event entertainment, and city centre venue hire has the added advantage of placing events in the middle of Manchester’s world-famous nightlife. There’s so much to do and see in Manchester that guests will be spoilt for choice, torn between cultural attractions like museums and art galleries, and places to eat, drink and socialize.
Victoria Warehouse is one of the most creative and exciting venues in Manchester, and it combines the city’s past industrial prowess with the contemporary energy of a place bursting with corporate innovation. The stripped back aesthetic of the industrial warehouse has been kept intact, and the building has been lovingly repurposed to contain a mixture of old and new features. The exposed brickwork and original metal beams allows the venue to retain a minimalist feel, and to transform itself to fulfil the vision of each event hosted there.
Victoria Warehouse’s flexibility means that it can successfully host any kind of event, from a huge electronic dance music party, to a corporate gala dinner, to a small exhibition from a local artist. There are a variety of events bays available for hire, and the smaller bays are often chosen for commercial filming, music videos and photo shoots. The space Victoria Warehouse has at its disposal makes it a perfect location for automobile product launches and fashion shows, and the venue has worked with a variety of well-known clients, including Jeep, Audi, Toyota, Hyundai, New Look and GAP.
Over the last few months, Victoria Warehouse has presented the Grammy award winning DJ and producer Afrojack, the worldwide party Don’t Let Daddy Know, an exhibition by Manchester’s mystery artist Mancsy, and an amazing Prohibition-themed showcase for industry partners. The showcase videos is available to watch here . 2015 is already proving to be a truly exciting year for Victoria Warehouse, and business looking to make a real splash with clients and potential investors should be prepared to think outside the box and choose something different to the standard conference venue or hotel.
Businesses that wish to define themselves as innovators, more interested in leading the way than following the pack, should definitely look into venue hire in Manchester. The city goes from strength to strength in terms of its corporate potential, and it possesses all the characteristics of an international business hub. Victoria Warehouse reflects Manchester’s ethos of creativity, innovation and diversity, and offers tailored, individual solutions for all clients.
