Manchester is a large cosmopolitan city with plenty of hotels, bed & breakfasts and AirBnBs to suit every taste and budget. In order to provide you with quality accommodation close to some of the major conference venues, our accommodation partner HelmsBriscoe (the largest booker of Hotel accommodation world-wide) have negotiated room rates in eleven major hotels in the center of Manchester, close to the conference action, and exclusively for E: SF delegates.

Booking Instructions

To reserve your hotel accommodations please follow the instructions underneath the hotel headings. Please take note that booking via other routes or websites will not result in the negotiated rates and could cost you more. You will need to provide your credit card details at the time booking to secure your reservation. Please don’t forget to keep a receipt if claiming for any expenses.

All Rates are per room, per night with breakfast included. The majority of the rooms can be configured for single, twin or shared occupancy. Sharing a twin room with a colleague may provide the most economical option for those on a budget.

The respective end dates for the room rates are indicated for each hotel below. Please note that on these dates, the rooms will no longer be held at special rates for delegates and any bookings made thereafter may be more expensive. The distances from the main conference venue the Royal Northern College of Music (RNSM) are also indicated. However, please consider, when booking that many of the hotels will be close to other conference sites including fringe events held in the city center and Salford in the evening.
