Venue

The conference venue

Saïd Business School
Park End Street
Oxford
OX1 1HP

The Saïd Business School is a modern, innovative venue located next to the railway station in central Oxford.

The city

In addition to being one of the UK’s notable web technology hubs, Oxford is a historic and beautiful city. Home to famous colleges, gargoyles, dozens of restaurants and the Ashmolean museum, the city centre is a 5 minute walk from the venue. The conference is on a Friday and, if you aren’t local, Oxford is well worth a weekend stay.

After-Party

Join us over the road for drinks at the Jam Factory bar and gallery. The after conference drinks will start immediately after the last talk until late.

By car

Oxford’s Park & Ride is the easiest way to get into Oxford City Centre by car – believe us!

With five car parks located around Oxford’s ring road and fast and frequent bus services until late evening, it is the only sensible way to travel into Oxford City Centre.

Please note there is no parking space available at the venue. While there is parking in the city centre, it is very expensive and Oxford’s one way system makes it a challenge for newcomers.

By coach

Regular coach services connect Oxford with Heathrow (1 hour), Gatwick (2 hours) and Luton (2 hours) airports.

The Oxford Tube coach service runs to and from London every 15 minutes during the day (2 hours), complete with free wifi and power points.
