Manchester Central has been awarded the contract to deliver events and hospitality services at Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park and Concorde Conference Centre.

The win forms part of the venue’s long-term strategy to expand the business by delivering its world-class hospitality and event management services at other prestigious venues across the region.

Home to the iconic Concorde aircraft, the venue offers a one-of-a-kind setting for dinners, conferences, weddings and parties for up to 700 people. Two smaller break-out rooms and an on-site café and restaurant make the park a top choice for event organisers and one of the region’s most popular visitor attractions.

Shaun Hinds, Chief Executive at Manchester Central said: “We are absolutely delighted to be moving forward with this new opportunity. The Concorde Conference Centre is the perfect complimentary offer to our iconic City Centre convention centre.

Our success is a true testament to the skills, expertise and agility of our team of event professionals and, of course, the strong reputation we have for delivering excellence every time.

Whilst we continue to navigate the unchartered waters that every business is dealing with amidst COVID, we must embrace every opportunity to inject confidence into our industry and showcase the role events play in bringing people together to celebrate, learn and do business. This addition to our offer will give us even greater scope to do just that. We’re working hard on our preparations and can’t wait to deliver fantastic events at this unique venue later in the year.”

Matt Etchells, Group Head of Hospitality at Manchester Airports Group (MAG), added: “We are pleased to be partnering with Manchester Central as we look towards the next chapter for the Runway Visitor Park and Concorde Conference Centre.

“The Runway Visitor Park is a truly unique setting and we are confident that Manchester Central’s experience in events management will help us to realise the full potential of the venue as a world-class conference facility.”
