99 City Road Conference Centre is located in the heart of the area known as East London Tech City, near the Old Street tube and rail stations. Operated by https://www.inmarsat.com, Inmarsat, a global satellite communications firm headquartered in the same location, the venue is equipped to meet the needs of technology-oriented conferences. With its easy access to transportation, its proximity to popular tourist attractions, and the variety of nearby hotels, it's an ideal location for DConf 2019.
Inmarsat has relationships with several local hotels allowing discounts for conference attendees. Upon registration, every DConf attendee will receive information on how to take advantage of these offers. Anyone who submits a talk and would like to wait until after the author notification date to register, please send an email to email@example.com for details.
Even with the discounts, the partner hotels may be rather pricey. For those looking for cheaper alternatives, there are at least three budget hotels within walking distance:
Other budget hotels can be found within a longer walking distance or a short tube ride away. There are numerous hostels to choose from as well.
Nightly Gathering Spot
Just around the corner from the venue is the Prince Arthur Pub. This is our official gathering spot in the evenings. Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America has booked a room for us for May 8, 9, and 10. Part of the fun of DConf is talking face-to-face with the other attendees. This backstreet pub is a cozy spot to do so. Drop by, enjoy a couple of rounds with us, and have some fun!
