Event Organiser Location and Access

How can you find us? It’s really very easy.  We have superb transport links and are accessible from all over the UK and, indeed, the world. 

Visitor Parking

There are over 2,000 car parking spaces on-site at EventCity and an additional 15,000 free parking spaces within walking distance of EventCity.

Access and Loading

When EventCity was being built, we listened to prospective clients and event organisers. You don’t like having a set time to load and unload, so we don’t do make you do that. Instead, we allow you unlimited access close to your hall to make life easier for you.

You’ll be happy to know that – unusually among U.K. venues – you can drive right in to your hall! Our extremely sturdy, hardwearing floor can bear 50 kN2 of weight so feel free to book and then drive in in an articulated lorry, large vessel, caravan or tank.


EventCity is conveniently located close to the M6, M62 and M56; and we’re just 2 minutes from the M60.  Please use postcode M17 8AS in your sat nav.
