Blackpool Grand makes the perfect conference venue.


Meetings and events deserve more than off-the-rail standard spaces you find at other venues. When you want to do things differently, you need to go bespoke. ‘GRAND’ bespoke – right in the heart of the town centre.



Philip Welsh, Head of Visitor Economy, Blackpool Council described it as:


…a brilliant setting.


Blackpool Grand as a conference venue offers made-to-measure meeting and event management in a unique venue location, professional staff to provide assistance and a wealth of innovative extras that are sure to help enhance your presentation.
