City Centre Connectworking at the Manchester Marriott

November saw the First Friday Connectworking event take place at the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel – only a 5 minute walk from Deansgate and two minutes from Spinningfields. The hotel is a striking Grade II listed building in the city centre on the banks of the River Irwell. It features a choice of dining at two restaurants and parking.

General Manager Paul Walsh was on scene to help us set up on the private Terrace which was nicely secluded from guests at the hotel. We were joined by our friends Jeffrey’s Tonic where director Steve Frehley set up a pop-up bar stocked with Jeffrey’s iconic flavoured tonics. This time we were also treated to both 4 Sisters and Stockport Gin, and guests didn’t stop propping up the bar all evening. Paul Walsh gave a short talk about the hotel and the great facilities it features – including a GM Business Connect Stand in the foyer! Then it was prize draw time where Paul pulled a card out of the bucket – which this month was won by Steve Frehley of Jeffrey’s Tonic. We then sprang a surprise happy birthday to Tom Ansbro from The Lowry Hotel with a celebration cake. Throughout the event the staff served up some amazing food which didn’t seem to stop – the quality of the food was superb and certainly added to the networking!

The next First Friday Connectworking will be advertised on Eventbrite so do look out for us.

Paul Walsh, Steve Frehley
