Manchester is proud to be host to the 2007 Urban Screens Conference
Inviting, original, edgy, happening, different: spend any time in Manchester and you’ll soon see it’s a place like no other. This free-spirited city demands your attention with a warm, no-nonsense welcome and a liberating open-mindedness that challenges you to take part. Bring us your ideas, your energy and your attitude and you’ll fit right in – that’s what makes our city uniquely Manchester....

Food and drink:
Manchester’s cultural mix adds up to a great range of places to eat and drink. From Michelin-style gourmet to fresh local produce at speciality markets, from stylish venues for intimate occasions to out-of-the-way places for a good, cheap meal with friends, there’s good food aplenty in Manchester...

Manchester’s dedication to amazing nights out goes on – and on. Its world famous nightlife attracts visitors from all over the UK and overseas. The club scene made famous by the Haçienda continues to draw crowds. And there’s a stack of smaller, edgier live music venues offering you a chance to catch the next Smiths or Stone Roses...

Arts and culture:
Manchester’s landmark galleries and museums like Daniel Libeskind’s Imperial War Museum North, the Museum of Science and Industry and the Manchester Art Gallery give you the chance to view fantastic permanent and touring exhibitions. If you like to make a night of it, take in a show at the Royal Exchange, the Lowry or one of many other theatrical and concert venues. See for yourself why Manchester’s taking centre stage...

Beyond the city:
As the unofficial capital of the region, Manchester makes the ideal base for exploring the North of England. For days out head for the stunning countryside of the Lake District, Lancashire and the Peak District or make the most of the city’s transport links to visit local market towns, the vibrant City of Liverpool (European Capital of Culture 2008) or the historic cities of Chester or York…

As an international sporting centre Manchester’s top of the league. Our footballing pedigree speaks for itself – take a tour of Old Trafford or the City of Manchester Stadium to get a first-hand flavour of Europe’s most exciting football league. The 2002 Commonwealth Games has left Manchester with a range of even more world-class facilities – and they’re open to spectators, visitors and sports people…

Manchester is a vibrant city with excellent transport facilities – an international airport served by over 100 airlines, fast mainline train services and adjacent motorways, getting to the city could not be easier!
