Things to see and do
The best networking doesn’t always happen in a meeting room. You often get that moment of inspiration and meet the most interesting people when you’re sitting back relaxing, enjoying the vibrant atmosphere of a bar or restaurant or getting out and about visiting the sights.
It’s important to let your hair down, and your delegates will find it hard not to have fun and unwind in NewcastleGateshead, a place where living life to the full is part of our makeup. There’s something happening every day; from world-class music and concerts, carnivals and performances to sporting events that stir the soul. Old and new, our permanent fixtures including our ancient city walls and castle keep, and the waterfront bars and galleries in the famous Quayside area, are attractions in themselves.
Where we have come from is just as interesting as where we are now, and evidence of this is not hard to find. Hadrian’s Wall is a stunning ‘necklace’ of Roman wall and forts across the north of England, and along with Durham Castle and Cathedral forms a pair of World Heritage sites found on our doorstep. A walk down the elegant Grey Street or along our castle-filled coastline will set your delegates’ imaginations alight and keep them talking for years to come. No wonder almost 87% of delegates would like to return.
