Getting to the conference

We are holding the conference at The Comedy Store Manchester. Nice comfy seats and located right in the centre of town.

Most of you will be staying in one of the hotels close by, if not you can either use this Uber code or get the Metrolink to Deansgate-Castlefield

Getting to Manchester

Manchester has very good transport links with London, Europe and international destinations.


If you are flying into Manchester airport then the easiest way to get into the centre is to catch the train.

The airport train leaves every 10 minutes and takes around 20 minutes to get into the city centre (Manchester Piccadilly station).

You can then transfer to the comprehensive public transport network.


Manchester is well connected to other major hubs on the train network.

We are on the fast west coast line from London. A typical journey from London takes around 2 hours.

The venue has a big car park near to it which is attached to the Great Northern complex.

Great Northern is easily accessed by car with secure and covered on-site parking for over 1,200 cars, offering 24 hour parking.
Entrance to the NCP car park is on Watson Street, behind the Great Northern development.


Recommended hotels

Hilton Manchester Deansgate

The iconic building that dominates the Manchester skyline. Good service and if you can get a room with a view its pretty spectacular.

Jurys Inn Manchester

Reliable and competitively priced.
Highly Recommended.

Sometimes it can be cheaper to book direct with them

Other Recommendations

  • Radisson Blu Manchester
  • Novotel Manchester Centre

We found it really hard to get discounts to that beat the price comparison sites.

Book a Room with Trivago

Or you could checkout airbnb for places near to the venue
