IVCO 2024

Newcastle upon Tyne


Welcome to Newcastle upon Tyne, a lively city nestled in the northeast of England, renowned for its extensive heritage, vibrant culture, awe-inspiring architecture and the welcoming Geordie charm and hospitality. Geordie is a nickname for those from this region of the country and the dialect used by its inhabitants – but do not worry, the primary language spoken in Newcastle is English. Newcastle has something to delight every visitor, whether you are foodie, love to immerse yourself in history, want to simply enjoy the lively atmosphere or have a bit of time to explore the Northumberland countryside and coastline.

Newcastle offers a wide range of accommodation options to suit every budget and preference. We have secured delegate discounts for hotels available for booking directly via the IVCO 2024 accommodation platform (click here to access it).

The city receives moderate rainfall during this time, with occasional showers interspersed with periods of clearer weather. It’s a good idea to pack a light waterproof jacket or umbrella to stay dry when exploring the city. Overall, September presents a comfortable climate for outdoor activities and sightseeing in Newcastle upon Tyne.
