Social

The past 20 years have taught us that our unique social events are often the most valuable moments for connecting with fellow industry stakeholders. In addition to hosting social evenings at some of Manchester’s most iconic venues, our networking brunches, happy hours and late-night Luna Lounge offer more relaxed and informal settings to do business.

The National Football Museum
04 September, 19:30 – 23:00

The first Soccerex social evening provided the perfect opportunity for all delegates to celebrate the beautiful game at the iconic National Football Museum and continue networking in a more relaxed environment. International football was shown and there was a plentiful supply of complimentary refreshments.

Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester, The Halle Suite
05 September, 19:30 – 23:00

The second Soccerex social evening provided the further opportunity for all delegates to relax and unwind in an informal setting after the second day.
