Seminar: From event venue to Nightingale Centre
Presenter - Shaun Hinds

A look back over 3 weeks between March and April 2020 where we converted the Manchester Central Convention Centre into a Nightingale Hospital. We?ll also look back at some of other chapters in the history of the Manchester Central starting with its original role as a railway terminal. We?ll also look to the future and touch on the reasons why Manchester needs to host world class events if it?s to meet its ambition of a leading global city

We will reflect on the history of the venue and use more recent PowerPoint slides and video to chart the construction of the nightingale hospital. We will spend some time on how the venue has changed over the years whilst remaining true to its central purpose, no pun intended!

Shaun is Chief Executive of Manchester Central and in addition to running the business day to day, works as part of the Manchester family to attract leading events into the city. In addition he is a board member with two industry associations as well as other local venue of historical interest, Victoria baths. 

Originally from Newmarket in Suffolk, he moved to the North West initially for a role with another Manchester Institution, The Co-op. Prior to taking the helm of Manchester Central, He spent 4 years with Bridge Street Global Hospitality overseeing their portfolio of hotels and serviced apartments in EMEA and APAC.

What our
members say...

I happily renewed my membership with The Business Network South Manchester yesterday hosted by Simon & Win. Why? It's structured, director level networking which works for me and the kind of businesses I want to be introduced to. Plus there's an amazing extended network I have access to... With a couple of contacts i have met in the group we're working on developing what will be the biggest production project of my career so far. Renewing was a bit of a no-brainer....
