The Manchester International Convention Centre is designed and built specifically for the purposes that it will serve. The new building has been developed to provide facilities that will lead the way in convention centre design well into the millennium.

A theatre style auditorium will provide seating for 800 people, facing a stage of 250 square metres and provides a perfect environment for the weightlifting competition. This intimate and dramatic setting will enhance the atmosphere for the spectator whilst the back of house facilities will give the competitors the perfect environment to prepare for their event.
