Hire Space expands to Manchester

Venue finding business Hire Space has opened an office in Manchester, ahead of its launch in the city in mid-September.

The website currently serves as a marketing platform for 1,200 London venues, including Westminster Abbey, the Copper Box Arena and the Southbank Centre. The Manchester launch marks the first stage of the company's expansion. 

Hire Space co-founder Edward Poland said: "Manchester was always first on our expansion list for its vibrant events scene and characterful architecture. There are a wealth of unique, fascinating spaces and we’re excited about the prospect of showcasing them."

Hire Space started as a way to drive revenue in schools and other public sector spaces, and is now used by leading businesses and the public to find unusual venues for events, product launches, conferencing and promotional activities. Its clients include Google, Accenture, Topshop, JP Morgan and the BBC.

Manchester venues already signed up to the platform include EventCity, Gorton Monastery and The Lowry Theatre. The website aims to have 200 live venues for its official launch on 15 September.
