Visit Manchester has
enlisted the support of tenor Russell Watson to launch its Manchester Live
showcase in London.
The event, which will take place on 24 February at the
Roof Gardens on Kensington High Street, has been timed to coincide with the
International Confex exhibition.
Guests at the event will have the chance to network with
over 30 Manchester hotels, conference venues and event
suppliers before a live set from Russell Watson.
Visit Manchester’s Paul Simpson says: “Confex brings
together over 10,000 of the most influential people in the business and it’s the
perfect time to show the industry what we’ve got.
“The recession has hit the conference industry hard –
particularly the corporate sector – but Manchester has never been one to shy away from
a problem. We’ve got the product, the infrastructure and can offer significant
cost savings compared to other areas of the UK.”
International Confex, organised by UBM Live, is to take
place at Earls
Court 23-25 February
