Greater Manchester Chamber has partnered with Unique Venues of Manchester to deliver Manchester’s first hybrid showcase event.

Virtual events have proven a huge success during the lockdown period and it cannot be denied that the development of these events has been a real positive for businesses looking to promote services and make new connections.

That said, it is clear that remote events cannot replace the valuable personal interaction that takes place at physical events.

The hybrid event offers organisers and delegates the best of both worlds and UVM, in partnership with the Chamber and other partners, is holding an event to clearly show how beneficial this new format can be.

Following the recent news that the events industry can re-open from 1st October, UVM EXPO 2020 launches its third industry exhibition – this time in hybrid format - on 1st October 2020.

Brought to you by Unique Venues of Manchester and a number of incredible partners, UVM EXPO 2020 will be a conference and exhibition style event, combining both live and virtual experiences, in what promises to be an unmissable showcase for hybrid events, as it aims to attract MICE professionals from the city region, around the UK and beyond.

The partners so far include Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce’s Chamber SpaceClearCaptive NorthVenue Seekers and Marketing Manchester, with more to be announced.

Delegates can attend the city-centre event at Chamber Space, Manchester, or join online via the Swapcard platform to learn from industry experts from across the UK and connect with colleagues and suppliers, as part of a full day’s programme of speaker sessions, presentations, panel discussions, exhibition, entertainment and one-to-one appointments.

As well as knowledge sharing of international perspectives, the hybrid expo is aimed at event planners and will incorporate Manchester’s top venues, suppliers and industry-leading technology.’

Free for event planners to attend physically or virtually, UVM EXPO 2020 takes place on Thursday 1st October between 10am and 4pm in Manchester’s Chamber Space, comprising 16 meeting spaces on Deansgate in the heart of the city.
