Victoria Warehouse welcomed The Women's Equality Party

Victoria Warehouse hosts The Women's Equality Party
The Women’s Equality Party held their first party conference during the last weekend of November at Victoria Warehouse. The three day conference was held in The Cotton Sheds of Victoria Warehouse, were 1400 delegates attended.

To date the party has over 65,000 members and supporters and is quoted by The Telegraph as being the fastest growing political force within the UK. Established in 2015 by author and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig and journalist and author Catherine Mayer, a key objective of the party is to deliver gender equality. 

It was therefore no surprise that Manchester was selected as a city to host their first conference, as the home of Emmeline Pankhurst and the birthplace of the suffragette movement. As a party which is striving to transform politics, hosting their conference in a transformed warehouse complements their objective to bring about change. 

The versatility of the venue meant that the space could be seamlessly transformed to meet the requirement s of the party. Using all of the space available, breakout areas for workshops and training sessions were set up and a dedicated exhibitor area was created, this was in addition to the main conference auditorium. 

Kayleigh Brindle, Director of Sales at Victoria Warehouse commented: “We were delighted to host our first political party conference at Victoria Warehouse and wish The Women’s Equality Party every success in the future. During 2016 we have hosted car product launches, conferences and exhibitions and to add political events to our portfolio highlights how adaptable our venue can be. Recent developments with the expansion of our basement areas means we can continue to grow our core conference and events business throughout 2017 and beyond”.
