The Greater Manchester Cancer Conference took place on 18th and 19th October 2022 at the Hilton, Deansgate, Manchester, and featured a range of speakers talking about this years themes of collaboration – equality – innovation, and how these themes help us improve the lives of people affected by cancer in Greater Manchester and beyond.

Our event will be taking place at Hilton Manchester Deansgate and we can’t wait to welcome you back! We’ll also be offering a virtual option to attend our main keynote sessions for those who prefer to join us online.

We would like to encourage all delegates to use public transport where available – the venue is served by excellent bus, tram and train connections.

The NCP Great Northern is the closest car park (savings are applicable when booked in advance). There is disabled parking available in this car park. There is also facility to be dropped off directly outside the Hilton Hotel.

For maps, directions and parking charges please visit the Hilton website.

Reducing our environmental impact

Our conference is an exciting fixture in our calendar and one of our largest events, attracting hundreds of visitors.

This year, we have been carefully considering ways in which we can reduce our environmental impact.

As a result, we have taken the following actions:

  • Switched our name badges from plastic to recyclable card. We will also request our in-person attendees to return their green lanyards at the close of the conference to be reused in future years.
  • Reduced the amount of paper we use at the event, including printed agendas and programmes. Our conference app will contain full information regarding our agenda, speakers, sponsors and more. QR codes will be placed around the venue for you to download our app and access this information, with free WiFi available. A small amount of paper copies will be available.
  • Requested our sponsors to support us in our agenda to reduce paper on-site
  • Reduced the amount of waste created through promotional items. We know some items including pens and notebooks can be an added bonus to receive at our events, but have considered carefully the volume and type of items available to ensure we reduce waste from unwanted or ‘one-time use’ items.
  • Requested the venue to use crockery rather than disposable plates or bottles for refreshments

How you can support us:

  • Opt for green travel where this is available and appropriate for you (including car sharing, travelling by tram, train, bus, bike or foot)
    The Hilton, Deansgate (M3 4LQ) is close to both Manchester Oxford Road and Deansgate train stations and Deansgate Castlefield Metrolink Stop. There are also buses which travel to Deansgate. You can plan your journey using the Transport for Greater Manchester website.
  • There are bike racks outside the The Hilton hotel and access to the Bee Active bike close by too.
    You can also find out more about the BeeActive bikes available to hire in Manchester on the Transport for Greater Manchester website.
  • Bring your own refillable cup/water bottle, if you have one
  • Bring your own paper and pens if possible
  • Download our conference app ahead of time to access our agenda, programme and information about the event.

Thank you for your support. We are continuing to consider how else we can make improvements in this area and we would welcome your feedback and suggestions for future events.

Thank you to our sponsors
