Shuttle buses are provided for the following journeys:

  • Swansea University campus to hotels after talks finish on Tuesday and Wednesday
  • Hotels to Demo Factor venue on Tuesday evening
  • Demo Factor venue to hotels and afterparty after the event ends
  • Demo Factor afterparty to hotels
  • Hotels to I Love Student Radio Awards ceremony on Wednesday evening
  • I Love Student Radio Awards venue to hotels and afterparty after the ceremony ends
  • I Love Student Radio Awards afterparty to hotels

The shuttle buses are only available for those listed above! We want to make sure your time at conference is well spent so have put these journeys on so you don’t need to worry about catching local buses or paying for taxis at the end of a long day of activities! After evening events accommodated ticket holders have the option of being dropped off at hotels or being taken to the afterparties. You will need to make your own way to the Bay Campus for registration on Tuesday, and at the beginning of Wednesday and Thursday.

Getting around campus:

Conference will be located at Swansea University, The Bay Campus. It has state-of-the-art facilities, direct access to the beach, and its own seafront promenade.

Registration will be in the great hall located in the centre of the campus. This is also where all sessions will be based. If you are lost look for the big clock tower as it’s opposite that.

Maps will be included in your programme which you will receive upon arrival when you check-in to conference and all rooms for keynotes, breakouts, food and evening entertainment will be clearly signposted in English and Welsh!
