VentureFest North East takes place in the heart of Newcastle, a well-connected central hub of thriving North East businesses. For the past three years the venue for VentureFest North East has been St James’ Park in Newcastle, where it is returning in 2019.

About St James’ Park

Located in the heart of the city, just a five-minute walk from Newcastle Central Station, St. James’ Park rises proudly from Newcastle’s iconic skyline. As the home of Newcastle United since 1892, the venue has a rich history and the conference facilities boast award winning-chefs and stunning pitch side views.

On the Day

With over 800 delegates expected, St James’ Park is the ideal venue for VentureFest North East as we take over several floors of the stadium with a day of speakers, workshops and an exhibition.

There’ll be plenty of information ahead of the day and staff on hand during the event so that you know where you need to be for the workshops and challenges that you register for. Sign up to our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss out on any of workshop announcements and miss the chance to get involved!

Getting to the Venue

St James’ Park is a city centre stadium, therefore we’d encourage delegates to use public transport to reach VentureFest North East. It is located very close to central station, metro stations and bus stops. If you plan to come by car however, there are plenty of car parks nearby.

We’re lucky enough to welcome national and international speakers to our event so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need help planning your journey!
