Demand is still growing for corporate spaces to offer more than natural day light and the latest AV equipment. In fact, as we transition from a year of experiences to a year of personalisation within engagement, the new challenge is to provide spaces that clients can really connect with as individuals. For us, INNSiDE by Melia Manchester really has thought through user experience, offering a concept that supersedes other venues in Manchester City. The ‘Big Ideas Space’ that feels like an extension of your living room (granted, if we all possessed that much style) really is an exciting addition to their other corporate indoor spaces that are already trusted by major companies to deliver powerful corporate events, productive private meetings and memorable celebrations.

Convenience is not even a question. This eye-catching work of architecture is located in the First Street development at the very heart of Manchester. This venue is remarkably easy to access whether walking from Deansgate and Manchester Central, or driving from surrounding motorways.

The’ Big Ideas Space’ measures 44m2 and nicely compliments their larger more standardised spaces, of which the largest can accommodate up to 330 delegates theatre style. Floor to ceiling windows offer a dazzling amount of natural light; comfy sofas and chairs dissolve you in the relaxing and charming environment and if you do need a pick me up, the fridge is full of enticing refreshments!

We particularly like their careful selection of tactile and sensory objects and décor that give you a sense of belonging as if you were at home; or a feeling of excitement as if you were in an escape room! Clever tools to influence your guests mood and enhance creativity! New tech is also favourited here. Take for example their SMART Kapp screen, with which you can scribble your thoughts, mind map, doodle and bounce ideas to your connections anywhere in the world!

With day delegate rates from as little as £30 and bedroom rates from just £99, this seems like an ideal venue to visit and stay!
