Manchester Central Conference Centre - powered by CTI Drupal

Manchester Central is the largest exhibition and conference facility in the North. Their new web platform, powered by CTI Drupal, is the culmination of many months of meticulous planning, UX appraisals and complex web development.

Great emphasis was taken in considering user journeys. Working in collaberation with Paul Rouke of PRWD, CTI's creative director has produced a engaging design providing rapid access to information for organisers, exhibitors, visitors alike. Subsequent phases will see major additional functionality and a fully responsive template to cater for mobile devices and tablets.

Highlights include an emersive HTML 5 3D venue walkthrough, extensive video and image galleries, striking events calendar and comprehensive FAQ's setion.

As Director of Drupal at CTI I am delighted to witness how my team have, in a short timeframe, delivered a striking and highly usable presence for one of Manchesters landmark venues.
