UKFast has completed a 500 seater auditorium and events space, which will open to the public in January.

Including a 100 sq ft digital screen, bar and networking area, it has been designed by its in-house team, UKFast Space.

“Despite the huge advances in digital communication, there’s still a real demand from the business community for high-quality, well-designed spaces to get together face to face, to meet and to collaborate. Sometimes there’s just no substitute for building relationships in person,” stated UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones.

“We were inspired by our original auditorium that was built in the first stage of the development of UKFast Campus. That space had an average of four events a week, so we knew there was a need for it, but we’ve outgrown it and require something truly world class that enables people to run high-quality events without the exorbitant costs.

“We've never charged for our event space in the past, so if customers or charitable organisations have a real need to do something worthwhile then we will always back them.”

The auditorium is based within the 40,000sq ft UKFast Campus, near Manchester Science Park.
