The Lime Venue Portfolio’s Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) has won the Best Hospitality Venue of the Year Award at the third annual City of Manchester Business Awards.
Taking place at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate hotel the awards, hosted by business club Downtown Manchester in Business, recognised the achievements of Manchester’s businesses from the past 12 months.
Entrants were judged upon a public vote in order to make the shortlist, followed by a combination of 50 per cent votes and 50 per cent opinions of a judging panel.
MOSI has invested £8.5m into redevelopments of the museum’s visitor and conference facilities, including a new conference centre, which can host functions for up to 400 people in the former warehouse. The redevelopments were launched in January 2011, and the completion of two new galleries now means the venue can cater for functions for up to 1,000 delegates.
Lime Venue Portfolio is the collection of venues including Edgbaston, Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, Edinburgh Zoo, Dartmouth House, Stationers’ Hall, Beaulieu, Epsom Downs and Cheltenham Racecourse.
