The following information is to help with your travel arrangements for attending the BUFDG Annual Conference 2018
at the University of Hull. By setting out our intentions regarding transfers and shuttle services at this stage, we hope
that you are able to make an informed choice about your travel to the event. If you have any questions, please contact
bufdg@assuredevents.com.


LOCATION

We will be offering shuttle bus transfers during conference registration times (13:00-18:00) on Sunday. These will not
be running directly from the station due to stopping restrictions, but from the DoubleTree by Hilton which is a short
walk from the train station (less than five minutes). Therefore, shuttles will be running between the DoubleTree by
Hilton and the Premier Inn Hull City Centre (for registration), and then from the Premier Inn Hull City Centre to the
University on Sunday evening (for the Informal Dinner), Monday and Tuesday (for the conference sessions).
The shuttle bus from the DoubleTree by Hilton to the Premier Inn Hull City Centre will take approximately 10 minutes,
and the shuttle from the Premier Inn Hull City Centre to the University should take around 15 minutes.
A full shuttle schedule will be sent out with the joining instructions and will be available on the website closer to the
event.
