The Pioneer Suite Provides the Perfect Location


Aug 29, 2012 | Editors

The Pioneer Suite is a quirky but adaptable venue based in the heart of Manchester city centre, less than five minutes’ walk from Manchester Piccadilly train station and situated amongst the stylish and contemporary bars of vibrant Canal Street.

The L-shaped space has high ceilings and is flooded with natural light which is overlooked by the mezzanine floor seating area. With a fully equipped kitchen and a range of audio visual equipment, it’s not difficult to understand why clients keep coming back to use the venue.

The B.I.G Northern Forum took place in the Pioneer Suite and was hosted by Manchester based market research company, Acumen Fieldwork. The event, which housed around 60 delegates from across the North of England was a huge success and has led to Acumen playing host to an annual Fieldwork conference in the Pioneer Suite, the first being this October. Delegates were impressed with the location of the venue as well as the facilities that were provided to them.

The space can fit a maximum of 100 people standing or 60 people seated and is perfect for PR events, meetings conferences or training events. The flexibility of the space means it can easily be adapted to suit the requirements of any function and comes with a dedicated team of assistants to ensure the success of any event.

Although the Pioneer Suite is often used to host conferences and meetings, the space is versatile enough to be used for virtually anything. From film castings to first aid courses and everything in between, it’s even been used as a photography studio. With pan, tilt and zoom cameras, full audio and visual equipment, laptop hire and IT support, the Pioneer Suite is technologically equipped to accommodate any event.

Aside from the high tech equipment and adaptable space, the Pioneer Suite’s location is one of its best features. Situated on the Rochdale canal, the area is beautiful as well as convenient. Less than five minutes from the city’s main train, tram and bus stations, it’s also surrounded with ample car parking spaces. If you need to stay overnight, there’s even a lovely 4* boutique hotel, literally next door.
