Manchester Central announces podcast spin-off series to shine a spotlight on the industry

‘Central Chat: Spotlight On', a spin-off series of Manchester Central's pioneering podcast, was announced this week.

Last year, individuals and businesses across the UK, including Manchester Central, had to quickly learn to adapt to a new COVID-19 world and the array of restrictions that followed.

The ‘Central Chat' spin-off series will give a voice to event professionals and local Manchester companies who have shifted focus as a result of this ‘new normal'.

Each episode will put the spotlight on one specific guest's story and experience, sharing their insights and learnings over the last 10 months.

Shaun Hinds, CEO at Manchester Central, said:

“Almost one year on since the first lockdown, the appetite for accessible, interesting, and unique online content is bigger than we've ever seen it, so we felt the time was right to bring back Central Chat in this new format as we get stuck into 2021 and all it brings.

The podcast primarily focuses on the event industry, and as we know, events are all about people. With that in mind, we want to develop the channel to tell new stories about how this global pandemic has affected, inspired, and changed the events industry and the people and businesses within it.

Manchester Central is calling for event professionals across the UK to get in touch if they're interested in being featured on the podcast.

If you have an interesting story to tell about how you or your business have shifted focus or if you have any views on hot topics in the event industry at the moment then get in touch with podcast host, Samantha Pike-Devlin on
