In future, delegates attending events or exhibitions at The Point or the Pavilion will have direct access between each venue via a glass enclosed footbridge overlooking the famous Old Trafford cricket pitch. This means that should the rain happen to fall in Manchester they will no longer need an umbrella.
The addition of the bridge, built by William Hare Ltd, is further testimony of Emirates Old Trafford’s continued investment and transformation of the ground to increase its standing as a business venue.
Angela Hodson, venue sales manager at Emirates Old Trafford says: “Once the Pavilion was re-developed work commenced with the building of the bridge link. The bridge will allow events to grow as delegates now have easy access to break-out rooms, workshops and syndicate spaces in the Pavilion.”
The £7.5m redevelopment project of the historic Pavilion married the building’s character and heritage with brand new state-of-the-art facilities for use by LCCC Members, guests and business delegates.
Angela adds: “The Point, which can cater for up to 1,000 seated guests, is now directly connected to a venue that can provide for a further 700 delegates, adding to the venues capacity and flexibility.”
