With 28,000sqm of space and the second largest exhibition and conference centre outside of London, EventCity truly is a magic box. The building's history is as diverse as the events it supports. Located in Manchester, at the heart of the Trafford Centre complex, this former tobacco factory benefits from a large network of shopping, leisure, dining and hotel services, all within a short distance of its front doors. EventCity is perfectly located with 3000 free parking spaces, access to the M60 just 2 minutes away and public transport easily accessible, it is no wonder that it is fast becoming a leading venue in the events industry.


Divided into 4 inter-linkable halls, Hawthorn has been appointed by EventCity as their preferred supplier for all technical/production services and an exclusive rigging contract throughout the building. Following an extensive £250,000 technical installation by Hawthorn, Hall 4 (EC4) has been fully fitted out with the latest in rigging, lighting, sound and draping solutions making the 5,850sqm hall a versatile space. Primarily aimed at the corporate sector, EC4 is the perfect, ready to go venue for your conference, dinner or product launch. With a dedicated and experienced team and the addition of our very own Technical Manager based in the venue, your event is in safe hands and will receive the attention and detail other venues could only wish to achieve.
