Manchester Event City is housed in a former Manchester tobacco factory. The factory opened in 1995 and was acquired in later years by its current owner. The venue was leased to Argos for a while, who used the complex as a warehouse. The lease expired in 2011 resulting in the complex reverting to its owners and converted into an event site.  The venue has 4 halls with the largest having the capacity to accommodate 4500 people.
