Manchester venue Emirates Old Trafford has appointed Callum Baxter as the venue’s new business development manager.
Baxter, 29, arrived at the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club in February 2016 from the Manchester city centre based National Football Museum, where he was responsible for bringing in major events, securing corporate partners and sponsors, and also project managing English football’s Hall of Fame awards.
“I’ve had a fantastic month at Emirates Old Trafford, so far, and it’s been great to immerse myself in the business right away,” he said.
The venue can host large scale conferences for up to 2,000 people as well as intimate executive meetings, exhibitions and dinners. A new 150-bedroom four-star Hilton Garden Inn is also due to open on site in the summer of 2017.
