GISRUK 2019 will feature two social events to give delegates the opportunity to network and catch-up with old friends. We will host a conference reception on the Wednesday evening and a conference dinner on the Thursday evening (more details below). Alongside these we are more than happy to advise on locations for other activities within the city centre. Feel free to contact us prior to the conference or speak to any of the committee/volunteers who will be on hand throughout the event. We aim to provide a welcoming and inclusive conference environment.

Conference Reception - Discovery Museum

On Wednesday the 24th of April a conference reception will be hosted at the Discovery Museum, a museum charting the scientific and engineering history of Newcastle upon Tyne and the wider area. Canapes and refreshments will be served during the reception and a selection of venues for dinner after the reception are just a short walk away.

Conference Dinner - St. James' Park

On Thursday the 25th of April we will be heading over the road from the USB to St. James' park, home to Newcastle United. A reception will start from 17:30 with views overlooking the hallowed turf with a three course meal following.
