The Manchester Airport Concorde Conference and Events Centre, has become the latest venue to join the Lime Venue Portfolio. The attraction sits as part of the Runway Visitor Park, and adds further iconic meetings and events options into the venue group.

The venue is based just off site at Manchester Airport, and regularly caters for product launches, gala dinners, team building events, exhibitions or meetings – all taking place in and around one of the world’s most famous Concorde planes. The main stand out space, the Concorde Hangar, gives event delegates the chance to meet in the same room as the iconic Concorde.

Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park welcomes over 300,000 visitors each year to watch planes take off and land at the UK’s 3rd busiest airport. As well as running aircraft tours, the park also has a restaurant; children’s play area, aviation shop and 5 classic aircraft to explore.

“This is a great venue, which does an exceptional job in wowing visitors. They have an ambitious team and were looking to join Lime Venue Portfolio to challenge themselves in every aspect of delivery, and benchmark itself against other great venues,” commented Jo Austin, Sales Director, Lime Venue Portfolio. “With this job, you often get spoilt for amazing spaces, but this one has always been breath-taking, it’s a valued and welcome addition to the group.”


“Lime Venue Portfolio is a strong brand within the meetings and events space and we felt its reach and brand strength would help get this exceptional venue in front of more national event organisers,” commented Robert Pattison, General Manager at Manchester Airport Concorde Conference and Events Centre. “We also wanted to make sure we take advantage of Lime Venue Portfolio’s quality benchmarking to ensure we always give the very best food, service and operational support to our clients.”
