Venue and Directions


University of Bolton
Deane Road
United Kingdom
(Boardroom suite: in the university main campus building on Deane Road building D on the map, see [1])

Local contact: Scott Wilson; e-mail: scott.bradley.wilson@gmail.com

The campus is a 5-10 minute walk from Bolton station, which is itself 20 minutes by train from Manchester Piccadilly station.

For delegates coming directly to Bolton from the airport, there are trains leaving from the airport station every half hour, taking around 40 minutes to reach Bolton.


Delegates may stay in Bolton, where we would recommend the Holiday Inn

(About a 20 minutes walk, or 3 minutes by taxi, according to Google)

Alternatively delegates may wish to stay in Manchester and take a train to the meeting, in which case there are plenty of options for accommodation suiting a range of budgets.
