Buyer verdict
Sarah Lawrence, B&Q business events expert, says: "The team at Manchester Central couldn't have been more supportive and informative, both prior to and during the conference. Its dedicated team members were on hand for the duration of the event and felt like an extension of the B&Q team. Post-conference, delegate feedback has been extremely positive and I would definitely recommend Manchester Central to anyone currently thinking of holding their event or conference there in future."
