Newcastle Gateshead CVB acquires new venues

Newcastle Gateshead Convention Bureau has signed Tyne & Wear Museums (TWM) as new members, increasing its portfolio of event spaces. The new venues are dotted across the Newcastle, Gateshead, Wallsend and South Tyneside area. They include the Laing Art Gallery in central Newcastle, the Discovery Museum with its Great Hall that seats up to 400 people, Segedunum Roman Fort on the banks of the River Tyne and the Shipley Gallery. Smaller venues include the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens and Arbeia Roman Fort and South Shields Museum & Art Gallery both located in South Tyneside. Tyne & Wear Museums trading manager Jon Walker said: "Our venues offer something a little bit different and special for conference organisers. "From hiring the Laing Art Gallery to entertain amongst the masterpieces to hosting an event in the tropical Winter Gardens at Sunderland, we have unique surroundings to suit all tastes." Newcastle Gateshead convention bureau head of business tourism and membership added: "Newcastle Gateshead’s unique selling point in the events industry is its sheer variety of venues. "Conference organisers are always on the look out for something new and different and the spaces offered by Tyne and Wear Museums certainly fit that bill, so we anticipate a lot of interest."
