Run in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Housing and incorporating its annual conference, 'Housing' has attracted more than 30,000 people since moving to Manchester from Harrogate in 2012.

Taking place later this month, from 27-30 June, Housing 2016 will occupy the whole of Manchester Central and will incorporate a new Health, Social Care and Housing event.

Angie Robinson, CEO of Manchester Central, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted to cement our long-standing relationship with Ocean Media Group.

"Securing future years with Housing 2016 is a huge win for the venue and the wider city, as it is the type of event that really showcases the best of what Manchester Central has to offer, while providing a massive boost for the surrounding hotels, restaurants and businesses."

Sir Howard Bernstein, chief executive of Manchester City Council, added: "Manchester has established itself as significant conference destination. Prestigious events such as this bring economic benefits to the city's hospitality sector, as well as giving us a chance to extend a warm Mancunian welcome to delegates from around the country. We are delighted that Manchester Central has again secured this event."
