As an architect student i regularly visit Manchester central to admire the mix use of material used in its construction and the type of styles it incorporates. As a tourist attraction its one i would see! The aesthetics are split into three levels with the first at ground/eye level. The contemporary minimalist architecture used is effective with the angles created using masonry. The sandy/orange colour used matches close to the victorian period architecture that surrounds the site. The second level itself is very victorian as it incorporates the arch of the old railway building. The intricate detail in the iron work is something to admire. Especially how is contrasts the third highrise level in the city scape and the modern interior used for the events.

I have only been to one convention held by UCAS. I was impressed at the interior space and size available for the stalls and information points. The layout is easy to follow and the acoustics are fine. The interior isn't particularly exciting but it serves its purpose.

Great central location, close to all transport links and ideally positioned opposite the Midland Hotel where I was staying.

I go to conferences regularly and have been to several conferences at this centre over the last few years. The most recent (April 2012) was the best in my opinion. Everything was good- location and venue, IT backup, staff (really helpful and courteous), clean toilet facilities, but most of all, the food we had at lunchtime was well above the usual conference cult sandwiches I am used to. Well done to all at MCCC.

Just completed the Northern Bar and Restaurant Show. I must compliment the staff, especially the security team who were most helpful. Toilets etc were all spotless and the cleaners were constantly in evidence.
Other exhibition venues should watch and learn.
