News | 6 Jul

We’re pleased to welcome VenueLab who have added EventCity at TraffordCity to their portfolio as one of their nationwide event venues. The site will be offered to VenueLab for events until January 2022 when plans will commence for the UK’s first city-based wellbeing resort, Therme Manchester.

As one of the most instantly recognisable and respected large-scale event centres in the UK, it is now available to hire for conferences, awards, gala dinners, exhibitions, brand events, concerts, product launches and filming. Located in TraffordCity, Manchester, this legacy venue has hosted a vast variety of previous events such as the Ideal Home Show, The National Wedding Showand the Caravan and Motorhome Show to name a few. 

Simon Tracey, COO, Broadwick Group (parent company of VenueLab) said: “Partnering with Peel L&P is an incredible opportunity and I am looking forward to seeing EventCity re-activated and welcoming people safely through its doors once again.” 

EventCity is the North's largest, blank canvas multi-purpose event venue, with a combined area of 28,000 square metres across four flexible halls, a playground for event organisers and location scouts alike. The halls can be hired individually and exclusively, with meeting rooms and organiser offices also available. There is ample car parking on-site as well as convenient transport links to the centre of Manchester and beyond. 

The venue is renowned for its ample branding opportunities with the ability to wrap EventCity’s vast windows, perfect for clients wanting to make their mark on this historic and sought-after location.

Jemma Scott, newly appointed as Head of Agency at Venue Lab commented: “I am beyond excited to be adding this incredible venue to our portfolio and thrilled that it is our second space in Manchester. Venue Lab are the market leaders in reviving spaces and growing them into thriving event venues whilst delivering exceptional experiences for our clients.”

Director of Facilities & Asset Management at Peel L&P, Paul Chappels said: “We’re really pleased that Venue Lab has come on board to allow quality events to continue at EventCity up until early 2022 when work will start on Therme Manchester at TraffordCity. As restrictions have eased, we’ve seen that people want to enjoy events again in a safe environment and we’re confident that Venue Lab will be able to offer a great leisure attraction at EventCity and we’re excited about the opportunities to work with them across more of our developments.”
