For many years Manchester hosted a dedicated indoor motorcycle show at Manchester Central, (formerly GMEX), usually in January each year. Had this event not been postponed due to the severe weather conditions in January 2010 and the subsequent financial implications of this cancellation on the organising company, this event would probably still be going strong today.

There is no doubt that the unfortunate demise of this show left a sizeable hole in the show calendar and there is an appetite, from both the motorcycle trade and visitors alike, for a show of this type in the north of England, as it is now the only significant region in the UK without a major indoor motorcycle show.

So why not simply return to the old venue? Since the last Manchester Motorcycle Show at GMEX a new venue has opened in the city and has had a major impact on the events industry in the north of England. EventCity is literally two minutes drive from J9 & J10 of the M60, right next to the Trafford Centre, and is far more accessible by road to all the major conurbations in the north of England than any venue in the centre of Manchester. In addition, EventCity has 3,000 dedicated, free parking spaces and almost unlimited free parking at the adjacent Trafford Centre. The ease of access for exhibitors building up and breaking down is a major selling point for the venue and its location on the outskirts of the city means that the hotels are much more affordable than in the city centre. 

Log onto the venue website and you will see that many major public shows have now moved there, including Clarion Events Caravan and Motorhome Show, Destinations Holiday and Travel Show,
