How much does membership cost?

Membership fees are based on the number of staff employed by your organisation in the Greater Manchester area. Once a company is signed up, all of the staff members are eligible to get involved in our network and attend our events.

How do I book onto an event?

Head to the events page on our website. Once you have found an event you like, click ‘book now’. During the booking process you will be asked to provide your membership I.D. You can also book a place for a colleague or guest while you are logged in.

When you book on to an event we will send you a confirmation email and ahead of the event we will send you a reminder and the list of attendees.

How many places can I book?

Our booking system allows you to book all the tickets you want in one go. There is no hard and fast rule on the number of places that a single company can book. We would however limit the number per company should an event be over subscribed.

Can I attend if I’m not a pro-manchester member?

Our main events programme are member only. We do open up our sector events to non-members from that sector. We do also run our SME Club events that are available to non members.
