Travel arrangements

Branches are asked to book all travel arrangements for conference through Stewart Corporate Travel. Travel application forms are in the conference bulletin (see “Resources” below).

Wherever possible, please ensure train tickets are delivered to you directly as collecting them from stations incurs an extra charge.

Travel costs for delegates will be funded nationally; travel costs for visitors must be paid for by the branch.

Branches are responsible for funding their delegates’ and visitors’ attendance at conference. Subsistence should cover the cost of accommodation, meals, childcare, dependent care and facilitation.


Branches are encouraged to arrange accommodation through VisitManchester.

Using the booking service supports the work of our members in local government and ensures our continuing ability, as a not-for-profit organisation, to secure preferential rates for our conference venues.

There will be a wide choice of accommodation including accessible bedrooms and apartments across the city.  You can book and secure your own accommodation using either pro-forma invoices or credit/debit card.

If you require any assistance with your reservation, support is available via the Accommodation Booking team.
