Marketing Manchester and Manchester Convention Bureau are delighted to be supporting the inaugural National Venue Awards and we wanted to encourage all of our partners to get involved.

Organised by the same people behind the successful London Venue Awards – the National Venue Awards are a chance for all UK venues to win a hotly contested accolade.  The event takes place in May at Emirates Old Trafford and we are delighted to be partnering with this Manchester-held event.

There is plenty of scope for every type of venue whether they be historic, modern, museum, university, evening, sporting, rural, urban, wedding-oriented or delegate focused.  There is even a category for outdoor and one for temporary / pop-up spaces.  See the full list of categories here.

Winning an award is a great shortcut to underscoring the superiority of your service and facilities and we hope as many Manchester venues as possible will enter and top the leader-board!

The deadline for entry is 17th January – but as a Marketing Manchester contact you can apply for extra time. Simply complete this form here.
