The Venue

The Manchester International Convention Centre is an excellent state-of the-art conference centre in the heart of the city, right next to G-MEX, the venue for Focus 99. It provides a full range of meeting and lecture rooms , centred around the 1900 square metre Great Northern Hall. This will form the hub of Focus 2003, housing Business Suites, catering and poster presentations.

Manchester has undergone an urban renaissance over the past few years, with recent developments focusing on the 2002 Commonwealth Games. It is a thriving city with a delightful mix of modern and Victorian architecture. There is a lively music scene - both contemporary and classical - and plenty of places to eat, drink and take in the atmosphere.
