Conference Venue

For 2007 the SRHE Annual Conference will be returning to Brighton, Sussex to the same venue as the highly successful 2006 Conference. The main venue will be the Thistle Hotel, located centrally on the seafront facing Brighton Pier and backing onto the famous "Lanes" shopping and cultural district. The Thistle Hotel offers excellent quality accommodation, fully equipped conference facilities and the Society is again pleased to be able to offer very reasonable residential rates for the full duration of the conference. All the conference plenary sessions and most of the parallel sessions will be held in the hotel which also has a spacious atrium area excellent for networking and informal gatherings. Some conference sessions will also be held at adjoining hotels. Returning to this venue affords the opportunity to build on last year's experience to improve further the overall quality of this conference event.
