With multiple meeting rooms all in the same building, it’s quick and easy for delegates to find their way to key sessions.

Lecture theatres are designed for the exchange of important ideas. The Great Hall’s high ceiling and open space invites guests in, allowing a free flow of movement around posters and for networking at coffee breaks. Both make the perfect backdrop.

And it’s all managed by the friendly Conferences & events team, from advice on room choice to ensuring the right range of catering options is available at lunchtime.
