Manchester as a business and leisure tourism destination is the topic of conversation in the latest episode of ‘Central Chat: Spotlight On’, a spin-off series of Manchester Central’s pioneering podcast.

Hosted by Digital Communications Executive, Samantha Pike-Devlin, episode six features Scott Brown, Cluster Director of Sales – UK North at Meliá Hotels International – most notably the INNSIDE Manchester Hotel which is located just minutes from Manchester Central.
