This is the first time the cake and bake show has been here - it used to be at Manchester Central. The one massive plus for us here is free parking - compared to £15 for the day in the centre of Manchester! However, the building and car park cannot cope with the visitor numbers at these kind of events.... More

Event city exhibits just about everything at all times of year. The traffic is always awful as it's next to the Trafford centre, this area needs a multi storey urgently. The entrance was all the way around the side, only a quarter of it was used for this event, but a variety of interesting stuff and plenty of advice, but... More

I visited for a business trip - Prolific North Live. The place was surprisingly large and had great facilities.

As other reviews, the venue organisation was crap.. 😰 The audience with McGregor was excellent.👍 Luckily only bought cheap tickets £35ish, would have liked a table with food BUT, after witnessing the shambles glad we didn't pay loads. Massive entry queue took 2 hours to get seated, mostly queued outside & it was cold, also no lighting outside so felt... More

Conor McGregor was 5 stars but the arrangement on the night was a shambles. Told to turn up at 1815 and eventually got to the front of the queue at 1915! 1 hour of queuing in 4 inch heels in a pitch black car park is not cool. The venue was really cold inside. Table service for drinks was terrible,... More

Came here with 3 adults (one in a disability scooter) 2 toddlers and a baby. There is plenty of parking and the spaces are generous, lots of disabled spaces too. Easy access into the venue and all rooms, toilets are spacious and clean, disabled toilet is also fine. The floor surface is smooth which is great for us disabled folk.

I was left totally disappointed by the Conor McGregor experience evening. I paid £450 for two gold tickets for my husbands xmas present. For this price you would expect a first class service. We were emailed and told to be there for 6.30pm and warned not to be late arriving so we got there early at 5.30pm. My sister had... More

Went to 'an audience with..' here. Queues for the bars were horrendously long, same goes for the toilets. Drinks were expensive, £5 for a can of carling or strongbow. The seating is very cramped, if you're tall or bigger built you'd really struggle to be comfortable. Worst of all the sound was really bad where we were sat (to the... More

Went the show this weekend. Impressive arena next door to the Trafford centre. Great space for Manchester for such events however, the free wifi signal was poor and spoilt the occasion.
