Covid Update
With business centres in Sunderland, Darlington and Washington, the BIC team have been working hard to adapt our own workspaces to accommodate the return of more staff and businesses.

The steps we’ve taken | EventBrite Events Safety Playbook

Situated two miles from Sunderland city centre and a few minutes from the A19, the BIC’s conference facilities are easily accessible from Teesside, Durham, Washington and Newcastle, with plenty of free car parking for your staff and visitors.

Home to 140 companies, and with over 1,000 people working on our 14-acre site, and many more visiting on a daily basis, we have designed a wide range of professional conference facilities and meeting spaces to meet your business needs.

Five meeting and conference spaces to choose from — book for full or half-day sessions, with certain rooms available by the hour

  • Presentation and video conferencing facilities, including free Wi-Fi
  • Layouts configured as you require for interviewing, training, formal presentations or relaxed networking
  • Impressive central atrium area and café -- ideal for informal breakfast and other networking events
  • Reception team to ‘meet and greet’ as guests arrive
