what they're saying about TRAFFORDCITY

"The considerable size of the land available to us at TRAFFORDCITY meant that the team who originally brought the Chill Factore indoor ski concept to Manchester could create the longest slope, the widest beginner slope and the largest ‘snow fun park’ in the UK. Its vast scale, in a high visibility, premium location, combined with the latest ski technology, which replicates the alps experience, means it has endured as a nationally unrivalled indoor ski destination.

"We benefit from the presence of complementary retail and leisure attractions on our doorstep, which gives us plenty of opportunity to forge joint partnerships and initiatives, which we have successfully done with intu Trafford Centre, Play Factore and DW Sports. “Over the years, we have built up a positive relationship with Peel and there is an open dialogue between us to share ideas and give feedback."

Morwenna Angove, Chief Executive, Chill Factore

"The relocation of our business to TRAFFORDCITY came after an extensive search of Manchester’s commercial DISTRICTS.

"This was a significant investment in the company’s infrastructure to reflect our long-term vision for the Company, our desire to provide the very best environment for our people and the ongoing global growth of the business and the need for easy international connectivity.

"It became clear that the VENUS offices at TRAFFORDCITY were by far the highest standard compared to any other premises we considered, positioning us in the heart of a vibrant and thriving development close to Manchester and enabling us to create a bespoke office environment that supports our culture. It has also provided us with the opportunity to take our technology platforms to another level, investing in the latest collaboration technology to connect our seven international offices and 2,000 home-based franchisees and support staff.

"VENUS and its location and the plans for the area, also offers an abundance of benefits for our staff and visitors including on-site parking, well-established and improving transport links and on-site accommodation.

"Our staff retention levels are excellent and part of this is down to the attractive environment our employees work in. It has also proven essential in attracting the very best talent from the area, particularly in our growing technology team. As a business that puts its people at the heart of everything the office is truly reflective of this and facilitates our ongoing growth and cultural development.

Steve Byrne, CEO of multi-award winning, independent travel business, Travel Counsellors

"This incredibly popular show brings in 44,000 visitors a year to EventCity, so from a practical perspective, the size and scale of the venue is an important factor in our decision to base the north of England show here.

"Equally, we know it is easily accessible for visitors from across the north west and beyond. Its location is also attractive to Ideal Home Show visitors as car parking is free, which justifies a higher spend within the show and during their trip they will often tie in a visit to nearby attractions."

Giles Perry from Media Ten, organisers of the Ideal Home Show, hosted bi-annually at EventCity
