“I have been in contact with NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau for just over a year now, and they made my first (and daunting!) experience of conference organisation much more manageable than I could have imagined. They are on hand to give the conference organisers expert advice, tours of venues and provide suggestions to tailor our conferences that I would not have considered alone. Their bespoke packages for event options are excellent, including sourcing accommodation on a very strict budget. Their free promotional material and accommodation website service has been invaluable. I’ve had assistance from the convention bureau for three large international conferences over the last year, one of which was secured through their support. The team are an absolute pleasure to work with, everything is clearly explained and nothing is a problem for them. I hope their services can continue to assist us in the future.”

6th Annual Alliance for Healthy Aging Conference
“Newcastle Gateshead Convention Bureau provided a highly professional service which fully supported our three day academic conference with delegates from around the world. The Bureau provided an excellent service during our conference planning period, which included identifying potential sites for the social programme and helping us choose the most suitable venues, identifying and block booking hotels, negotiating a competitive conference rate and linking bookings with our conference website. During the conference, the Bureau assisted us with their ‘meet and greet’ service at Newcastle Central Station, which was hugely appreciated by delegates. Nothing was too much trouble and the assistance the Convention Bureau provided contributed to our conference being rated as ‘outstanding’.”
