Came to a dinner awards night on May 11th 2017., Huge tin shed, situated adjacent to the Trafford Centre, with adequate parking. Utterly soulless, it's suitable for day time exhibitions. However it's a very poor choice as an evening banqueting venue, as its austere ambiance...More

Firstly, getting to EventCity on a Saturday is a nightmare. The traffic around the Trafford Centre is beyond a joke. When we finally arrived, there was plenty of free parking, with staff on hand to guide drivers to empty spaces. Entering the main hall, we...More

The date doesn't go further back however it's in March like this year -Saturday/Sunday 25th & 26th at Event City. The venue is easily accessible & spacious enough for a bike show but the food outlets are expensive so the only downfall really- take your...More

Brilliant event with lots to enjoy. VIP is the way to go, well over the ticket price in freebies and a fantastic experience shared with family and friends. Thank You!

turn up early for parking or dont complain. also the craft shows are full of 30-70 somethings armed with handbags and they will push past you with force. they push indiscriminately so disabled people beware.

This is the first time the cake and bake show has been here - it used to be at Manchester Central. The one massive plus for us here is free parking - compared to £15 for the day in the centre of Manchester! However, the...More

Event city exhibits just about everything at all times of year. The traffic is always awful as it's next to the Trafford centre, this area needs a multi storey urgently. The entrance was all the way around the side, only a quarter of it was...More

As other reviews, the venue organisation was crap.. 😰 The audience with McGregor was excellent.👍 Luckily only bought cheap tickets £35ish, would have liked a table with food BUT, after witnessing the shambles glad we didn't pay loads. Massive entry queue took 2 hours to...More

Is there anywhere to securely lock a bike? strangely the website says absolutely nothing about this [that I can find] even though the Bike Show was recently held there - I know they had to out up temporary facilities for that.
