“We had a record turnout for ESPR 2011 in NewcastleGateshead and even managed to order fantastic weather, contributing to one of the most successful ESPR meetings ever. The reception from the venues, their staff, the hotels and everyone right through to the taxi drivers was typically warm and very welcoming. I think all the attendees would come back again.”

“The NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau made finding accommodation a breeze. They took care of everything, arranged for a wide variety of accommodation types close to the conference venue to suit every budget and
created a user-friendly accommodation page linked to the conference website. They made my task as an organiser much easier and I would recommend their services to anyone organising a conference in the area.”

“Choosing a venue was very easy as we were shown round each of four possible venues and able to discuss our needs. We chose The Sage Gateshead. We had an excellent conference and were particularly impressed by the technical team who were unfailingly patient throughout and the caterers who did a great job in ensuring that delegates were able to ‘graze’ during the event as we requested. Thank you to NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau for suggesting this venue.”

“The NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau have provided outstanding support in helping to organise this meeting: surveying possible locations, arranging and accompanying us on site visits and lining up excellent deals with the possible venues! The staff were readily available, flexible and extremely knowledgeable. It is difficult to imagine a more professional or efficient service, and the Bureau are superb ambassadors for the region. I would recommend the Bureau without hesitation to anyone organising a meeting in the North East.”

“Organising a largescale event for a European research consortium at short notice felt like a daunting task until we approached the NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau. Their experience, knowledge and support was simply outstanding and was the key factor to the undoubted success of this event.”
