The £260 million development will offer a state of the art conference and exhibition centre including 6,300m² of flexible exhibition & banqueting space, 2,800m² of adaptable meeting and conference space including a 900 seat plenary theatre and 17 further meeting rooms for 10 – 180 delegates as well as bars, restaurants and extensive public spaces. Seamlessly linked to Sage Gateshead, the site offers a further plenary auditorium for up to 1640 delegates and delegates can walk to over 6,000 hotel bedrooms from the venue, including two linked hotels that will offer 300 onsite bedrooms. Newcastle& Gateshead is a modern, thriving city with fantastic shopping, exciting nightlife, inspiring heritage, 2,000 years of history and passion for sport. Add these to the legendary Geordie friendliness, and we've created a refreshing destination that will leave delegates and organisers with a warm impression and lasting memories.
