The 2017 conference will be held at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead Hotel. Situated on the Gateshead side of the River Tyne, it is a stone’s throw from Newcastle Central Station and major road links to the rest of the country.
The Hilton is well served by local bus and Metro routes, and is a short walk from both Gateshead Town Centre and Newcastle City Centre. For those travelling from outside the region, there is a range of accommodation nearby if you choose not to stay at the venue.
