Manchester Defeats Rivals For FCIB Forum

Manchester has been successful in its bid to host this year’s prestigious International Conference of the Finance, Credit and International Business Corporation (FCIB). The city beat rival bidders including Prague and Madrid to stage the event, expected to attract over 120 delegates. It will take place in October. It will be FCIB’s 116th European conference, and the first to be held in the UK for seven years. Recent hosts of the event include Munich, Lisbon and Vienna. Head of conference and membership at Marketing Manchester Mary-Jane Wiedemann said: “We are delighted. FCIB fits in brilliantly with Manchester’s profile and focus, and is a real indication of how the city’s position as a leading European venue is being secured.” FCIB director of European operations Tim Lane has praised the decision, describing Manchester as “an educational and dynamic conference venue with a vibrant business environment”. The venue for the three-day conference will be the new 263-room Radisson Edwardian hotel, due to open in June in the city centre. The event is expected to generate more than £100,000 for the city’s economy.
