Newcastle and the surrounding cities such as Gateshead and Sunderland provide a large number of different types of accommodation. While there is not dedicated conference hotel, we advise people to look for a hotel either near the university or near a metro station. The convention will take place at Culture Lab, which is located at about 5 mins walking distance from Haymarket Metro Station. The Visit NewcastleGateshead web site provides an online booking service for local accommodation.

The convention will take place in Culture Lab, which is located at the main university site near the Haymarket Metro Station.
