This year, we’re delighted to be partnering with British Land to provide delegates with the opportunity to participate in a tour of the lab space available at The Paper Yard.

  • Heavy duty lift – 1,000kg goods lift
  • Secure power supply – Back-up power
  • Spacious and light – Central, double height entrance space and connected service core 
  • Fully flexible – Each floorplate splits between laboratory and co-located workspace, accommodating a range of suite sizes

20 delegates in two groups of 10 will be able to join two tours, one in the morning from 10:45am and one in the afternoon from 1:30pm. Tours take approximately 1 hour and 30min from the venue and back, with the site being only 25 minute away via public transport.
