IWM North, part of the Lime Venue Portfolio, hosted the launch of their new WaterShard event spaces and upgraded HD Panasonic digital projection system earlier this month, attracting over 100 guests across 60 companies.
Levy Restaurants UK and IWM North have invested over three quarters of a million pounds in the new WaterShard development, a 250sqm dynamic, modern and contemporary event space with stunning views of MediaCityUK and The Quays. The room has the ability to divide into three separate areas, ideal for breakout requirements. The space is also equipped with integrated state-of-the-art AV and air conditioning.
IWM Norths brand new HD Panasonic projection system has improved their 360 degree digital theming ability and the projection content looks stunning. Several themes have been created which have been included in the venue’s standard evening packages; from a Manchester City Skyline theme for evening dinners, to a Santa’s Workshop theme for exclusive Christmas parties.
The showcase and networking evening started with a drinks reception under the venue’s famously suspended Harrier Jump Jet where a talented magician WOW’d the guests with his mind-blowing street magic tricks.
Then guests were welcomed to the launch by Sales Manager Liam Potter followed by a video to show guests how creative and versatile IWM North is as a corporate and private hire venue. The venue has gained a reputation for excellence in hosting conferences, meetings, dinners, awards dinners, receptions, summer parties and Christmas parties.
Make Events, IWM North’s event theming partner for the evening, also presented on how they can contribute to the gallery space with creative theming and entertainment. Guests then sampled a fabulous menu created by the venue’s Head Chef Tony Pickup whilst enjoying a Manchester based reggae band.
“We’ve got an amazing space and some of the most sophisticated AV you can find anywhere, right here in Manchester,” commented Jo Austin, Sales Director, Lime Venue Portfolio. “With infrastructure as good as this, we’re delighted that so many of our customers were able to take the time and come and see the space in person. This is a great event space in an already incredibly popular events venue.”
