Manchester Central has won the contract to host the Soccerex European Forum from 2010 to 2013.
Known as the largest business to business event in Europe for the football industry, the 2010 edition will take place on 2 – 3 March with 1,500 delegates expected to attend.
“The vision and commitment to significantly invest in our venue is paying dividends,” says Manchester Central chief executive, Lesley Tomlinson. “The multimillion pound redevelopment programme is attracting new business from many different sectors, including corporate, leisure, political and associations.”
Tomlinson adds: “In a city with such a rich sporting heritage, we hope Soccerex will feel at home for many years to come.”
