The Business School, University of Hull

Building on the success of the previous ECCRIA conferences, this tenth conference is to be held at the University of Hull.
Kingston-upon-Hull stands on the north bank of the Humber estuary at the mouth of its tributary, the River Hull. It is close to the east coast of the United Kingdom, about 25 miles inland from the North Sea. Established attractions include the historic Old Town, which was once the medieval hub of the city, where quaint old buildings and olde-world pubs have stood for years and the Museum Quarter, with four museums set around beautiful gardens. In addition, there is Hull Marina, which houses numerous yachts and small sailing craft and The Deep, a city landmark, where there are thousands of fish and sea creature on show. The redevelopment of one of Hull’s main thoroughfares, Ferensway, included the opening of St. Stephan’s Hull and four theatres, including the new Hull Truck Theatre. Spectator sporting activities include professional football, Hull City AFC, (Premiership) and two rugby league clubs, Hull RLFC and Hull Kingston Rovers. The KC Stadium houses the football club and one rugby club. This friendly and vibrant city provides an excellent base for the conference and a showcase for the English East Riding, where it is hoped that delegates from outside the UK will continue to support this event and will thoroughly enjoy their stay in Kingston-upon-Hull. Kingston-upon-Hull is well connected by rail to London, (2.5.h), is served by ferry from Rotterdam and Zeebrugger, and by Humberside Airport, which has at least 3 direct flights per day from the International Airport hub of Amsterdam. Manchester International Airport is only a 2 hour journey by a direct train route.
