IMPORTANT UPDATE: IHEEM Awards Dinner Change of Venue

01 October 2019


Due to unforeseen infrastructure issues at the Principal Manchester, the hotel has had to close the ballroom for the foreseeable future, cancelling 14 other events as well as our Awards dinner next Tuesday.
Consequently, at very short notice, we have had to relocate the dinner and awards to Manchester Central Exchange Suite, the same venue as the exhibition and conference.
Manchester Central is renowned for a high level of corporate entertaining and regularly hosts dinners for Manchester City and United and many leading corporate organisations located in Manchester.
The timings for the event remain the same; 7 pm black tie drinks reception in the Charter Suite reception, and dinner at 8 pm in the Charter Rooms followed by our guest speaker, Peter McDonald and the awards.

With over 650 guests, the IHEEM Awards Dinner promises to be a fabulous evening of great food and drink, networking, entertaining and celebrating excellence. The dinner package includes arrival drinks, food and wine and promises to be an excellent evening.

For those booked into The Principal, we will have free transportation on that evening to take you to and from the hotel. There will be more information on this is to follow.


Following the change of venue for the IHEEM Healthcare Estates dinner, any guests staying at the Principal Hotel will be offered transport to/from the new dinner venue at Manchester Central Charter Suite.

On checking into the hotel, guests should inform registration if they are attending the dinner and Adrian our Front Office Director will confirm transport times and numbers.
