RDF20 Conference Hotels

There are four Conference Hotels for RDF20. B&B accommodation in one of the Conference Hotels is included in the Full Conference and Delegate Packages. When making your booking you can select which hotel you would like to stay in. Please note that the hotel choice will depend on whether you are staying for 2 nights (Full Conference Package) or 1 night (Delegate Package).

We would recommend selecting the Jury’s Inn Gateshead (Newcastle Quayside) if you are only staying for the Monday night. This hotel is closest to Sage where the conference and dinner will take place.

If you are staying 2 nights (Sunday and Monday) and attending the Sunday evening workshop and buffet then this will be in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The Crowne Plaza is the nicest hotel out of the 4 conference hotels.
