The two-day event concludes later today (12 February). It has been held in the 100-capacity Williams BMW Suite – part of the Pavilion building that reopened in 2013 following a £7.5m redevelopment.

The suite has views over the Lancashire County Cricket Club pitch, as well as its own bar and balcony.

Angela Hodson, head of sales at the venue, said: "We are delighted to welcome back the RFL to Emirates Old Trafford for their two-day conference. Our Pavilion has flexible and versatile space to accommodate smaller conferences such as these as well as being able to host breakout space for larger events."
