Granted city status in 2002 to mark the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, the county borough of Newport is increasingly gaining attention from meeting planners as an ‘all-round’ destination for conferences, meetings and events.
An extremely versatile region, Newport is able to cater to every event organiser’s needs having a venue to suit every occasion, although it is also this diversity which makes the county a firm favourite with conference delegates.
Situated in South Wales amongst areas of incomparable beauty including the Wye Valley, Brecon Beacons, Vale of Usk, Forest of Dean and of course boasting an incredible coastline, the county is an idyllic haven for both land and water-based teambuilding events and corporate activities. City, coast and country settings offer the broadest range of meeting venues possible within a dramatically beautiful location sure to inspire.
Newport itself provides an urban landscape equally as impressive as the natural surroundings with a host of world-class venues offering formidable conference, exhibition and meeting spaces whether historic, modern, academic or sporting venues. Blending old and new, modernity with heritage, rural, urban and coastal locations, Newport really does have it all!
Another reason for Newport’s increasing popularity as a conference destination is its transport links, being easy and convenient to access from the motorway network, via excellent rail links and flights into either Cardiff or Bristol airports.
Whether hosting large hospitality events, vast conferences or intimate corporate retreats and strategy meetings, Newport can offer the perfect venue.
