Nicola Lowe, Events Director, British Council for Shopping Centres
“We broke all attendance records at our 2007 Conference and Showcase in NewcastleGateshead and have received outstanding reviews from delegates who were delighted by the inspirational setting and warm welcome theyreceived…one of our most successful events ever.”

Entrepreneurs Forum Conference, May 2015
“The 28th conference we have done, having used many venues in the north east, the iconic Sage Gateshead was up there with the best venue we have used to date. Everything from the vast and quirky space, the attention to detail and friendliness of the staff to the delicious food and impressive AV facilities, not to mention the fantastic views of Newcastle, the event ran perfectly. Philippa and her team were easy to work with and were so attentive and helpful on the day which made the whole day run so smoothly and as a result we had happy members and sponsors which is greatly important to us as an organisation.”

Paul Emberley, Director of Communications at East Coast Main Line Company Limited
“East Coast chose The Northern Rock Foundation Hall at Sage Gateshead for our thank you event for staff appearing in the Sky 1 HD documentary ‘All Aboard: East Coast Trains’. The facilities at Sage are superb and the attention to detail from the back-office team at the venue was great – and flawless. It was a fitting and essential contribution to a highly successful evening.”

George Clark, CIPFA
“We held an event at Sage Gateshead & the team was instrumental in it being our most successful to date. The conference was high quality and delivered at a very affordable price. The professionalism of the staff was impressive, as was the quality of the AV support. The catering was superb & we had help with sorting out sponsors & exhibitors whose material had not arrived – all the invaluable ‘extras’ you don’t always get elsewhere. A fantastic conference experience.”
