Our conference will take place on the first floor of the John McIntyre Conference Centre. There is a lift to this floor. Bathroom facilities including a disabled toilet are available on this floor. We apologise that there is no gender neutral bathroom at this venue.
To register, please sign up using SUPA Annual Gathering EventBrite.
The venue has a number of small spaces that we are allocating as 'quiet rooms' for prayer, parenting, needing to take a meeting, or simply respite from a large room full of people after two years of online!
During the week before the conference, we also have a series of online theme meetings (Tuesday 17 and Thursday 19 May).
See SUPA Theme Meetings for details.
The venue has air conditioning in the main meeting room, with windows that open in all main spaces. If the weather is good, there are roof terraces available during the breaks. Masks will be optional, and we'd ask that participants are respectful of those who choose to continue to wear a mask, or those who wear the Scottish Government official 'Distance Aware' badge or lanyard.
