Meeting Rooms Hire Guide

With its convenient location between other major cities, Manchester makes a perfect meeting place. The place that created the first programmable computer and split the atom is now a hot destination for conferences, meetups and gatherings of all kinds. Who knows what kind of innovation is coming next? Obviously, great ideas need a great environment. #tagvenue is the perfect place to find it – we list the best meeting rooms for hire in Manchester. And the cherry on top? Our smart search engine makes it easier to find a meeting room that’s ideal for your needs.

We love Manchester as a meeting point. Still not convinced? Here are a couple of reasons why Manchester meeting rooms are extremely popular across the UK (and even further afield):

  • Accessibility – Manchester is one of the most connected cities in England. There are four major railway hubs in the centre (Piccadilly, Victoria, Oxford Road and Deansgate). We’re listing meeting rooms within walking distance of each of these main stations. But there’s even more to Manchester: the city boasts a unique free shuttle bus system in the centre. This visitor-friendly solution makes finding your way around the city much easier, with no extra costs.

  • Variety of meeting venues – From mini meeting rooms to venues for bigger groups, Manchester boasts a wide selection of meeting spaces of all types. No matter if you’re planning a one on one interview, a small gathering or a large-scale convention, with Tagvenue you’re sure to find the right Manchester meeting room for your event.

  • Accommodation facilities – You can choose from thousands of bedrooms in Greater Manchester and in the city centre. The choices are so numerous you’ll have no trouble finding something that suits your budget. Want to host the entire event in one building? A lot of hotels in Manchester offer meeting rooms as well. This solution is time-saving and hassle-free.

All the advantages mentioned above make Manchester a convenient meeting destination for delegates from all over the world. But there’s another question: which area of Manchester will be the best choice for your event? Here are our favourite picks:

  • Manchester Airport – it’s the third busiest airport in the UK, serving more than a quarter of a billion passengers annually. It’s no surprise then that meeting spaces in close proximity to Manchester Airport are in high demand. Choosing this option when you’re hosting a meeting for delegates travelling by air helps you save a lot of time – and everybody knows that time is money.

  • Manchester Piccadilly – another major transport hub in Manchester, Piccadilly Station is the biggest of the four main stations. Hiring a meeting room near Manchester Piccadilly is the ultimate choice if you want to host your meeting both close to the city centre and close to a transport terminal. The area is well connected with the rest of Manchester by Metrolink and the bus network.

  • Manchester city centre – for those who want to be right in the middle of the action. Our favourite part about Manchester’s city centre is its diversity. Planning a sales meeting? A meeting room in the Central Retail District might be just what you’re looking for. Need something unique and quirky? Try searching for a meeting space in the Northern Quarter, where Victorian buildings meet alternative culture. If you want to impress your guests with state-of-the-art modern architecture, one of Manchester’s most vibrant areas, Spinningfields, is the right choice.

  • Meeting rooms in Salford Quays – possibly the hottest spot in Greater Manchester, Salford Quays is a hub for culture, shopping and, most importantly, business. One of the most notable points of this area is MediaCityUK, which hosts numerous big companies (such as BBC or ITV Granada). This vibrant district makes a great location for great meetings.

Another important question is: what to consider when planning your meeting? Here’s a handful of tips from our event professionals:

  • Prepare an agenda of the meeting and send it to your attendees along with the invitations. This will help them a lot with preparation. Keep in mind that topics usually take more time than expected, so don’t schedule the crucial points near the end of the meeting.

  • If the meeting is going to be rather long, remember to schedule breaks accordingly. This is crucial for getting your attendees’ attention. Remember drinks and snacks as well – don’t forget the simple truth that people tend to be more distracted when thirsty and hungry. Ask the meeting room’s manager what they’re able to provide. Some meeting venues in Manchester offer complimentary water, tea, coffee and cookies, some work with external caterers and some allow you to provide the food and beverages yourself.

  • Never neglect the event’s technical aspects. You’ve probably been to a meeting where there was a problem with a laptop or with the audiovisual facilities. These issues affect the meeting’s agenda and are simply a waste of time. You can decrease the chances of technical errors by taking some simple steps prior to the event. Ask for earlier access to the meeting room and make sure to test computers, projectors and any other equipment. Last but not least, provide wireless internet connection and double check if it’s strong enough for the number of participants you’re expecting.

Kate White
Booked The Loft at Oppidan Social HQ Bishops Gate
This is a lovely venue and we were so grateful to be accommodated at such short notice. The booking process was easy and it was good to have the option of booking catering or ordering externally. When we arrived at the venue I was surprised to find an assortment of breakfast cereals, snacks and pastries - this was lovely and unexpected. I brought my own herbal tea as most venues only provide the standard tea and coffee, I was delighted to find a variety of teas, hot chocolate and coffee. The room was a good size and came with a projector which was easy to set-up. There were pens and a flip chart too which came in useful. The building is in a quiet area away from the road and the room we used was up on the first floor so it was nice and quiet - it felt like you were away from everything and could focus on the task in hand. The staff were lovely and pleasant and everyone loved the dogs in the staff room downstairs :-)

Booked Mary Greg/ Charles Rutherston at Manchester Art Gallery
The overall service was excellent, from Victoria who dealt with my booking, right down to the gallery staff who were assisting throughout the day. The room was more than sufficient for our needs and also nice and bright. The organisation of the day was stress free for myself and the day went smoothly with great feedback.
