Key Processes

In depth research

We completed a comprehensive audit of conference and events venues across Europe to ensure that the final design outperformed competitors and positioned Manchester Central as best in class.

Immersive visitor experience

A 3D venue explorer was built using Webgl, Threejs and HTML5 canvas and CSS3 transformations.

Style tile

We developed a Style Tile to be rolled out across all existing and future platforms as Manchester Central’s digital presence expands.

Clear messaging

We developed clear, concise communications and messaging to ensure that the design met the needs of key visitor groups.
