The programme will commence with a welcome reception at the Newcastle University Business School (number 81 on the University Campus Map) on the evening of the 14th June. The main programme starts on main campus on the 15th June with a 9:00 registration and finishes on the 16th June at 15:00.

The Gala dinner takes place on the evening of the 15thJune and is being held this year in the medieval banquet hall at Blackfriars Restaurant in the heart of the city.
