New conference and event venue opens at Greenbank

The University’s conferences and events team are proud to announce the opening of the Sefton Suite, a new addition to their portfolio of venues.

The Sefton Suite is located at Greenbank Student Village, which is two miles south of the city campus. The space sits adjacent to the new halls of residence, and the building has been tastefully refurbished and modernised to host conferences, events and weddings.

The central room can be used in various formats, including 170 for networking, 147 in theatre style and 120 in cabaret style, or can be split into two separate rooms, with soundproof dividers. Three large screens are available for presentations, whilst the floor to ceiling windows providing natural light and views to the gardens

Located on either side of the Suite, are two adjoining areas, ideal for breakout, refreshments or lunch.

Marcus Wilson, Head of Commercial Marketing: “This is an excellent addition to the commercial portfolio of event spaces.  It’s a large and flexible space, and close enough for University departments to host events or away days off campus. We’re already seeing interest from external clients too, who want to a meeting space a short distance from the city centre. We’re keen for our internal customers to see it first, so in early 2020 we will be arranging visits for department and schools.”

The Sefton Suite will form part of Greenbank Conference Centre, which will also include Greenbank House, a Grade II listed building, originally the residence of the Rathbone family. Assisted by Conservationists and University departments, Greenbank House is in the process of being renovated to bring it back to its former glory. Once completed, the house will accommodate thirteen meeting rooms and is due to open for business in early 2020.
