North East VMUG November 2016 Event Details


Recently I joined the leadership team for my local VMUG group the North East England VMUG.  Its been great to see how these events are organised from the inside and I was surprised how much work goes into these!  The guys have arranged these events over the years out of their own time so hats off guys!

The next event is 3rd of November 2016 at our new venue The Royal Station Hotel in Newcastle, right next do to the train station great for visitors outside of the region.  For details of the hotel see here.  Now we have the finalised details we can finally share them.  If your in the region or based in UK please come along and show the support to our local community, these event cant happen without the community.

A special thanks goes out to the Sponsors for this event, without their continued support the events would not be possible.

Registration will be opening in the next few day’s at the below Link…..
