Greater Manchester Chamber has opened a Members’ Lounge in the University of Bolton’s new Institute of Management.
The new lounge offers Chamber members comfortable and modern surroundings to meet and connect with other members or take advantage of its free access to Wi-Fi to catch up on work.
Stella Bowdell, Director of Membership at Greater Manchester Chamber, said: “We’re delighted to be working with one of the Chamber's Patron members, the University of Bolton, to provide our members with a great workspace in the heart of Bolton.
“It’s the ideal place to relax in between meetings, catch up with contacts over coffee, or use as a casual workspace when you need a change of scenery.
“The lounge complements the Members’ Lounges at our offices in the centre of Manchester and the University of Salford Business School.”
The University of Bolton’s Business Development Director, Martyn Shaw, said: “This is a brand-new facility in Bolton town centre, adjoining the new £48m Bolton Interchange which combines Bolton railway station and Bolton bus station.
“We are delighted to provide this new facility for Chamber members; the new Institute of Management building heralds the University’s latest commitment to working with local business and with Bolton Council for the benefit of the town and our students.”
The opening of the new Members’ Lounge was marked by the Chamber holding an Action for Business event at the Institute of Management attended by over 70 businesses. The guest speaker was Sue Johnson, Treasurer of Bolton Council.
The Institute of Management is based in the new Bolton Central building, which is at the corner of Great Moor Street and Newport Street in Bolton.
