EMiT 2015 will be held at The Place Aparthotel in Manchester, UK, in the heart of the city centre and close to the campus of The University of Manchester.
As a Grade II listed building formerly known as The London Warehouse, The Place provides a uniquely ‘Manchester’ location for EMiT 2015. It will not only house the conference itself, including vendor exhibitions, but also serve as the location for the conference dinner as well as providing delegates with the opportunity to stay in one of the luxury self contained serviced apartments. Delegates will be able to benefit from a reduced room rate and those travelling with colleagues can comfortably share a 2-bedroom apartment each equipped with bathroom facilities and a large shared kitchen/lounge area.
Details of how to book an apartment for the duration of the conference along with delegate prices will be made available along with ticket booking information.
