Discover Cardiff for your next business event


Cardiff is a waterfront city with a portfolio of 70 different venues offering a choice of the traditional, the contemporary or the quirky. Delegates can experience a spectacular Castle, award-winning museums or a 74,500 seater international stadium in the heart of the city. Or perhaps a venue with a special history, a cultural hub or discover the city’s food scene.

This capital city is well located with good road and regular rail links, with an international airport just 25 minutes’ drive from the city centre. Indeed, Cardiff is just two hours’ drive from London making it easy for delegates, no matter where their travelling from. And when they arrive, delegates will find Cardiff a compact and walkable city; venues are usually up to 15 minutes walking distance from hotels and delegate experiences. 

Universities and colleges play an increasingly important role in the conference market, providing flexible meeting space alongside research and world-class experts within their fields. Cardiff is lucky to have three outstanding universities on its doorstep.  Cardiff University for example carries out ground-breaking research that has a global impact; key specialisms include Biomedical and Life Sciences, Physical Sciences and Engineering.

Delegates will find contemporary accommodation, designed with a Welsh twist at Hotel Indigo or voco St David’s Hotel and Spa in a stunning waterfront location. Or Hilton Cardiff overlooking the Castle or the more traditional hotels with a history to tell. Or perhaps increasingly popular serviced apartments or a rural resort with its own Castle in the grounds, which can be hired for exclusive use.
