CityCo, Manchester’s city centre management company, has a unique location right in the heart of Manchester. We can cater for a range of meetings and events from 2 - 60 in The Shipping Office, The Cotton Room and The Sorting Room. Whether it’s for a small conference, seminar or training session, pitch or presentation, celebration or away-day, bring your colleagues to a truly impressive, heritage venue.

Our event and meeting spaces are on the top floor of Lloyd’s House overlooking Manchester Town Hall. The building has a fascinating history.
