Destination Emirates Old Trafford wins major association conference

EDMC (Emirates Destination Management Company) has secured the Hospital and Specialty Optometrists Conference, organised by the Association of Optometrists, a leading UK membership organisation for professionals in the optical sector.

More than 300 hospital and specialty optometrists will head to Destination Emirates Old Trafford for a two-day conference, featuring a range of CPD-accredited education and workshops, from 21-22 September 2024. The gathering will include an exhibition to provide delegates with the opportunity to meet representatives from industry, as well as an evening dinner.

The Association of Optometrists will use a wide range of the venue’s spaces, including The Point, which offers enormous seven-metre windows with panoramic views of the legendary pitch. Organisers will also use the vibrant 1864 Suite, Members Lounge, Library Suite, Honours Suite, Emirates Lounge, and Executive Boxes.

For delegates staying overnight, the venue’s newly extended onsite hotel, Hilton Garden Inn, will provide 200 bedrooms, many of which look over the famous Lancashire Cricket pitch.

This event is one of a raft of new wins for the business, following a £75 million investment project, including a hotel extension, to transform the iconic cricket stadium into a world-class, multi-purpose venue in Manchester.
