Event Overview:

Please note that the postcode PL25 4FD is different to the venue's Sat Nav Postcode PL25 4EJ. Please ensure that you use this if you are driving; Sat Nav details PL25 4EJ, this is the correct postcode to bring you direct to St Austell Business Park.

There are also a limited number of parking spaces on site for the Conference Centre. Many spaces belong to businesses on the Business Park and are therefore reserved for them. We kindly ask that attendees do not park in any reserved bays (which have either reserved or white company plaques on the spaces), including those reserved for the Print Company at the main reception. We recommend that delegates use the conference centre parking based in the Premier inn on the right hand side on entry to the Business Park.
