UMIC Events Teams Up With The Christie To Celebrate Its 10th Anniversary

Layout 1The University of Manchester Innovation Centre Limited is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its conference business by becoming an official supporter of The Christie as well as unveiling a new name for its growing business, UMIC Events.

UMIC has had a long-standing informal relationship with Manchester’s leading cancer charity and will be supporting The Christie with a series of fund raising tenant events and corporate initiatives in the year ahead.

UMIC Events has also just regained the Meeting Industry Association standard, gained AIM accreditation and has retained its Investors in People status. It has also invested in a programme of enhancements to boost its offer including a brand refresh, new website, improved signage and re-decoration at its Grafton Street Innovation Centre and Core Technology Facility.

Since its inception UMIC has become recognised as a market leader, providing 13,620 sq m of high quality state of the art office and laboratory space and has a mixed portfolio of high specification laboratories and office spaces. Key tenants include Epistem, Nanoco and 2-DTech. UMIC Events provides the conferencing and events facilities together with onsite catering.

Commenting on its ten year celebration UMIC Events Sales and Conferencing Manager Simon Hadfield said: “We are thrilled to announce a formal partnership with The Christie and have organised a series of internal and external events to communicate with our stakeholders, have some fun and raise money at the same time for this great cause. Our aim is to build on our reputation, strengthen relationships with current clients and develop our work with new clients from a wide variety of sectors.”

In 2016 UMIC Events will roll out a new concept, UMIC Insights, a series of talks from key business leaders, innovators and creators from a variety of industries and disciplines, bringing together their thoughts on what makes successful businesses stand out.

UMIC Events will also host a series of Inspire Now events where people can join the team for lunch and listen to key and influential speakers giving their insights and ideas into how people can think differently.
