Mercure Piccadilly Hotel
We are returning again to the Mercure Piccadilly Hotel in central Manchester for QED 2023, our regular home for most of the past decade. The hotel and the conference work hard to be fully accessible, but if you have any specific accessibility needs we will be happy to discuss them with you.
Our discounted room reservations for QED attendees at the Picadilly Hotel are now sold out, but rooms at their standard rate may be available and other rooms may be available online. Itʼs worth shopping around for the best deal.
If youʼre staying at the hotel, we have reserved a number of rooms for QED attendees at the special rate of £120 per night for single occupancy, or £131 per night for double/twin. These rooms are immune from the usual time-sensitive fluctuations of hotel pricing.
You can only book by directly contacting Mercure hotel reservations on 0161 751 1412 (Option 1) and quoting the discount code 2309QEDCON. Lines are open between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday and you will need a credit or debit card to secure your booking. Terms & conditions apply.
Cheaper rooms may be available online, so itʼs always worth checking.
Manchester Travel Tips
Manchester enjoys excellent transport links: the North West has the highest density of motorways in the UK, and the city is ringed by the only truly orbital motorway. For sat nav purposes you need to go to:Mercure Piccadilly Hotel
Should you find yourself in the Manchester area, you can route-plan with the Transport for Greater Manchester journey planner. A bus ride from the south of the city may carry you along what is often claimed to be Europeʼs busiest bus route. There is room for skepticism over this claim.
