Before your academic conference

Once you are all confirmed and the day is planned, we can help you with all the finicky bits, and ensure nothing gets missed.

  • Save time. Avoid having to answer the same questions over and over again with our Delegate Welcome Pack. With information on parking, local transport, how to find us, disabled access and the all-important WI-FI information.
  • Avoid trapesing across the city centre with heavy suitcases and endless tote bags in tow. Have your give-aways and marketing materials delivered straight to our venue ready for the day
  • Keep delegates happy. Tell us the names of your delegates and their dietary requirements and we can label up their separate lunch box, so that no-one is disappointed come lunch time
