Small Meeting Rooms Hire Guide

Here are some points you may want to consider when choosing a small meeting room in Manchester:

  • Does the venue have additional rooms? While you might only need a small meeting room now, it's good to be prepared. Make sure the venue has larger meeting rooms available in case there is a change in the number of attendees. If the meeting is going to take a while, keep in mind that you’re going to need some space for the break.
  • Presentation facilities. Often, due to the limited space, small meeting rooms don't have a projector or audio equipment. If you require these items, make sure to arrange this with the venue beforehand.
  • Room layout. Most small meeting rooms in Manchester offer a boardroom layout. If you're going to do a presentation, a U-shape or classroom layout might be a better option. Keep in mind that you don’t have much space to work with, though. Check with the venue if they are flexible with how the room is laid out and whether or not the boardroom table can be swapped out.

The most popular locations for small meetings are all centrally located which makes getting to and from the venue easy for local attendees. For out-of-town guests, Manchester Picadilly train station is a few minutes by taxi. You’ll find the majority of spaces for hire in:

  • Spinningfields. Most meeting rooms in Manchester are located in the centrally located district of Spinningfields. The blocks around where Deansgate crosses Oxford and Quay are the best place to start looking. Just south of Spinningfields on Whitworth Street, you'll find a few more venues offering small function rooms.
  • Central Retail District. North of Spinningfields is Manchester's Central Retail District. Here you'll find several corporate venues, all of which offer small meeting rooms for hire.
  • Salford Quays/Media City. This is the perfect place to impress clients. This modern waterfront complex offers upmarket restaurants and meeting spaces, some of which overlook the Manchester Canal.

So, what can you expect to pay for a small meeting room in Manchester? There are three main pricing models in the city:

  • Per person, prices start at £25 to £40. These rates include the use of the space and refreshments (tea, coffee, water).
  • All meeting venues offer per-hour rates and per-day/per-session rates. These range from £24 to £102 per hour and £40 to £791/£20 to £252 per day/session. (All data from Tagvenue.)

How early should I book a small meeting room in Manchester?

You should book a meeting room in Manchester as soon as you know that you need one, at least 4 weeks in advance. However, we often have spaces available for you to use whenever you want, so if you're flexible with the timeframe, you might book a meeting room as little as a few days ahead. If you have a specific venue in mind, you may want to book 2 months or more in advance to ensure that it's available when you need it.

Booked The Morning Room at Oppidan Social Edge Street
What a fantastic place. We hired a room at Ziferblat for our team away day and everyone loved it here. The decor is so quirky and homely. There was plenty of games and stationery so we could do team building activities. There was also lots of breakfast/lunch/drinks provisions and the filter coffee was just the icing on the cake.
