Annual Convention 2021 | Manchester



We are delighted to announce that the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Manchester will be hosting our 2021 Annual Convention this September at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel supported by Marketing Manchester.

With a rich and revamped programme, #UKiCon21 will be a two-part hybrid event focus on supporting the industry as it maps its path to recovery.

From Thursday 16 – Friday 17 September, delegates will enjoy a two-day programme including our topical industry debates, inspirational keynote speakers, familiarisation trips, a themed networking evening, along with a new, improved and extended B2B workshop. There will also be an opportunity for buyers to meet with local suppliers from Manchester’s diverse tourism landscape.

In response to the evolving nature of the UK’s events industry, a virtual component has been added to the 2021 agenda and will be a feature of all future Annual Conventions. On Friday 24 September delegates will be invited to attend a full-day virtual B2B workshop and provided with access to a range of new on-demand webinars.

Further details will be released in the coming weeks – please keep an eye out for more information coming soon!
