Conference Dinner at the Lowry Centre – Thursday 7th July 2011

The Conference Dinner will be held in the Compass Room at The Lowry. Set in a magnificent waterside location at the heart of the redeveloped Salford Quays, The Lowry is an architectural flagship with a unique and dynamic identity. Rising from the regenerated docklands, it is a welcoming building, designed to reflect the surrounding landscapes and flourishing waterways, in its glass and metallic surfaces.

On the 4th floor of the Lowry, the stunning, circular Compass Room stands proud. The panoramic views of the Quays, MediaCityUK and the Manchester skyline from the Compass Room’s own private balcony adds the wow factor to any event. Please visit: The Lowry website for more information.



We have set up a facility here for delegates to book accommodation for the duration of the conference. This is a straightforward process with a wide variety of accommodation to choose from: from Manchester’s modern Youth Hostel to its prestigious 5- star hotels. Rooms have been obtained for the Conference at discounted rates so why not take advantage of this: stay longer and enjoy some of the fabulous offerings that Manchester and the North West of England have to offer.
