EICC-1 was held at the University of Manchester, in the north-west of the UK.
Our venue at the University was 'University Place', an ultra-modern building which opened in 2008, opposite the neo-gothic architecture of the surrounding structures. University Place is at the heart of the Oxford Road campus, 1 mile from the city centre.
The conference banquet was held at Manchester Town Hall, one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. Situated on Albert Square, the Town Hall was opened in 1877 and is a Grade 1 listed building which radiates the history of the city.
Manchester has a population of 2.5 million and is one of the largest economic regions outside London. It is a city; which has roots in ancient history, but is probably the most progressive city in the UK. It is wonderfully cosmopolitan and yet retains its own unique character. Manchester was the first city of the Industrial Revolution, the home of the first computer, and the birthplace of the first ever professional football league.
Manchester is well-served by hotel accommodation at all levels, from budget accommodation to stylish boutique hotels and four and five star establishments, and offers the wide range of leisure and entertainment facilities befitting a thriving, dynamic European city.
It also built a reputation as an international conference destination, hosting everything from international conventions to national expositions. Above all, it is the city's cheerful acceptance of newcomers that makes a visit to Manchester such a pleasure. Mancunian friendliness is legendary and an enthusiastic welcome is guaranteed.
