Please read the 2019 Handbook! This really can’t be stressed enough.
Before you come
Cash – There is a cash machine on site, but there is a fee for withdrawing cash. There are free cash machines in the nearby NEC buildings, but otherwise please remember to bring whatever cash you think you will need.
Drinks – You are welcome to bring your own drinks to consume in your room if you wish. Outside your room, only drinks purchased from the venue should be consumed. Please be aware that the bedrooms do not have fridges, and therefore it is not recommended that fresh food be brought.
Parking – Parking is by availability only. You can purchase a parking permit for £10, which will cover the duration of the conference. Please see the separate parking instructions sheet for details.
Arrival – Please come to the main entrance. You should then register at the GA Registration Desk for the conference. Bedrooms are available from 3pm and room keys should be collected from the Hotel Reception Desk.
While at the venue
Bar – The main lounge bar is open 24 hours. There is a 20% discount on drinks if you show your conference badge.
Spa and Sauna facilities – See Handbook for more details.
Wifi – There is free wifi available throughout the hotel. To use the hotel’s wifi, please connect to network hhonors_meetings using the password unitarian1 – if you have problems connecting, please contact the hotel rather than GA Staff.
You can leave!
Everyone needs a break, and possibly some fresh air, every now and again. There is a small, quiet wooded area behind the hotel where you can go to relax. The lake behind the hotel is also a nice place for a walk. If you need some supplies, there are shops in the NEC. We’ll provide a map of the immediate area showing these.
