Unique Venues of Manchester Limited (UVM) was established in 2013 and is predominately a web based marketing company, but also offers consultation, and is dedicated to the promotion and celebration of alternative, unusual and unique venues in Manchester.  UVM offers conference and event organisers the opportunity to use different selection criteria, including type of event, number of attendees, location or style of venue to search and discover the perfect space for their event. Visitors are also able to see special offers and news from the venues, as well as search through our dedicated section of local industry suppliers to help event organisers source any additional services they need. Originally set up by a steering group of colleagues from unique venues around the city, the business operates on a similar basis to established groups such as Unique Venues of London and Unique Venues of Edinburgh, to promote high quality event spaces and facilities in some of the city’s most exceptional and inspirational settings. Working in collaboration, clients can also visit Unique Venues of Great Britain to search nationally, as our network grows.




As a business, our goals are to:

  • Provide websites that promote alternative, unusual and unique of venues across the country, whilst offering conference and event organisers a simple and efficient method of finding and selecting a venue for their event.
  • Offer venues the opportunity to work collaboratively, network with colleagues, benchmark to improve quality and service, and be a stronger voice for our industry.
  • Identify and attract more business tourism to Manchester, and compliment the marketing activities currently undertaken by Visit Manchester, as well as help support the local economy, whilst generating business and increasing turnover for the venues we promote.
