In conjunction with KPMG, conference design and development consultancy The Right Solution has been appointed to produce a development study for NewcastleGateshead’s new conference centre vision. The project is part of the NewcastleGateshead vision of developing a ‘twin cities’ conference offering, which involves a review of market analysis, potential sites, funding options and specifications for a new conference centre.
The Right Solution MD, Sally Greenhill, says: “North East England is an exciting destination for all manner of events. A new conference facility in this part of the country would not only support the local and regional economy, but will also strengthen the UK’s portfolio for international buyers.”
Head of business tourism at NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau, Jessica Roberts, says: “NewcastleGateshead already has a proven track record in delivering high-profile events in an inspiring setting, with major names as diverse as BT, the Conservative Party and the European Association for the study of the liver all holding major conferences here.
“The destination boasts some stunning venues for memorable meetings and events and an international conference centre would provide an inspiring addition to our conference portfolio.”
