And if you want to find out more about what Brighton has to offer, then the VisitBrighton website is a good place to start.


This year, the conference venue is a short journey away from the city centre by train (10 minutes to Falmer station) or bus (25 minutes), so we suggest staying in Brighton centre/seafront area so that you’ll have easy access to transport links and the evening social/gala dinner venues, and of course an opportunity to go to the beach!

A range of hotels/B&Bs in Brighton are available to book at preferential rates via our dedicated accommodation booking page, provided by the lovely people at VisitBrighton.

Additionally, there is a centrally located Premier Inn and a Travelodge (both budget hotel brands of a good standard).

You can also search for other places to stay using sites such as booking.com.


There is lots of useful info about getting to Brighton here: https://www.visitbrighton.com/plan-your-visit/visitor-information/travel-information/getting-here.

The closest airport is London Gatwick, from where there are frequent trains to Brighton taking 30 mins, or the journey time by car is 45 mins.


We begin with the optional pre-conference workshop (9.00am to 12.30pm) on Tuesday 6 June, followed by the main conference which begins at 1.30pm. The conference will finish on Thursday 8 June at approximately 4.30pm.

You can also download the Provisional Programme.


If you have booked a place, you will be sent detailed joining instructions via email approximately 2 weeks before the conference begins. These will include further information about getting to and from the venue, details of registration and the social programme, and anything else useful that we can think of!

If you have any questions about any of the above please contact Marisa who will be happy to help.
