Why We Love It
The Palace Hotel boasts the largest hotel conference space in Manchester – at a huge 2,500m², the aptly-named Grand Room seats up to 1000 delegates theatre-style, or 850 banquet style, with The Buckingham Suite and The Whitworth Suite also offering ample space. As well as being perfect for conferences, gala dinners and awards ceremonies, huge rooms such as these are also the answer to your team building prayers. Practically any team building event that is usually run outdoors (such as our Cryptic Challenge or the fabulous Monte Carlo or Bust) can be run in these spaces, meaning that you don’t need to leave the city, your team will stay warm and dry, and the stylish hotel bar is nearby for post-team building drinks!
If you’re not deterred by the great outdoors and want to explore your surroundings, The Palace Hotel’s central Manchester location means that it is perfect for a Treasure Hunt, which is a great way to brush off the cobwebs and take in Manchester’s most popular landmarks after a morning of meetings.
“My favourite ever team building event in Manchester has to be the Enigma Challenge we ran for the Team GB Water Polo guys before the Olympics. They had so much energy and the Palace Hotel’s huge Buckingham Suite was the perfect space for them to let off some steam!” – Zoe Taylor, CCC Event Manager
