“I have used the Members’ Lounge on a number of occasions since February. It’s a workspace that I use between meetings when I am in Manchester with a good WiFi connection and great coffee! I can thoroughly recommend it."


Andrew Turner, Business Development Manager, Interserve Construction

“Following our client party at the Chamber's Meeting Centre, I'd just like to say thanks for a great night and the efforts of all the team. The event exceeded our expectations and we had tremendous feedback from all of our guests, with a lot of interest in the Chamber. Well done to all involved."


Graham Wilson, Managing Director, Parker Wilson Ltd


"As a small business owner in Manchester, I was always struggling to find a suitable venue for small meetings and presentations. A friend introduced me to the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and the benefits of becoming a member quickly became apparent. The Chamber has a number of private meeting rooms -  all have definitely got the wow factor. The rooms have a balanced mix of the classic architecture with a modern twist, providing an impressive backdrop for any meeting or conference - the building and the facilities have been a talking point at every meeting I’ve held there. I feel that the professional and welcoming approach of the staff, coupled with the building and facilities, have really helped my business to grow. I’ve now booked my weekly meetings at the Chamber and I’m sure my business will reap the rewards. I would highly recommend the Chamber for all business events and meetings. The location of the Chamber is fantastic."

Elliot House History

Elliot House has a long and important history in the centre of the city of Manchester. Built in 1888, it was originally the home of the Manchester’s School Board an organisation where Lydia Becker was the first female to be elected to a school board. She was the leader in the early British suffrage movement and a vocal advocate of a non-gendered education system. Later Elliot House became the Manchester Register Office and the temporary home of Manchester Library.


Today the building is home to Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) and continues to play a hugely important role in the city region. The Chamber, as well as providing a Members’ Lounge (free for all GMCC members), offers a range of affordable and stylish meeting rooms which can be used for a wide variety of events and gatherings, ensuring that Elliot House continues to play an important part in bringing people together.
