If you prefer to stay nearer to the Diamond Building and city centre, there are numerous hotels. Some helpful information can be found via the Sheffield Tourist information office.    Please note, we are not able to book hotels for you. If you do decide to book a hotel rather than stay in the student accommodation, you will need to select the day delegate ticket when booking. 


All plenary and workshop sessions along with exhibition and conference catering will take place within The Diamond Building. The Diamond Building is approximately a 30 minute walk from the Endcliffe Village accommodation, please allow plenty of time in the morning to arrive safely (or use the courtesy bus, see above)
