The Catalyst & Blackfriars l Newcastle upon Tyne

NICA: City of Longevity

We worked with client NICA, to create an event where cities from all over the world meet in Newcastle to discuss a new model for the future.

The event was attended by representatives from The World Bank, Gobierno de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, City of Lisbon, City of Tel Aviv, City of Bergamo, City of Coimbra Consortium, Ajuntament de Barcelona, City of Belfast, City of Sunderland, Generalitat de Catalunya, Gateshead Council, City of Newcastle, Stanford University, University of Tokyo and a number of other local and global stakeholders. Another special guest was Millie the Labrador, who demonstrated the Whistle tech health app which provides insights into your dog’s behaviour by tracking daily activities, health trends and location!

The conference was held at The Catalyst, in the impressive theatre space, lending to some innovative stage panel formats, encouraging interaction, discussion and collaboration. The day culminated with a reception and dinner at Blackfriars to allow our international delegation experience a taste of Newcastle’s medieval past.

BeaconHouse Events assisted with full logistics planning from invites, venue sourcing and liaison, speaker and delegate travel bookings, stage management and onsite delivery.
