EVERYONE is welcome to come along to the Newcastle Gateshead Hilton Hotel on Sunday October 11th, from 11am onwards. There will be a range of trade exhibition stands and the complete exhibition for the 2009 Master Photography Awards will be on show – though the winners will not be revealed until later in the day at the awards dinner.
There is no charge for admission to the exhibition and trade show, which runs through to 4.30pm. There are also four afternoon seminars taking place, between 2.00pm and 4.30pm, which are limited to free admission by MPA members and Affiliates. The tickets have been allocated by pre-registration. To check whether any places remain, call MPA on 01325 356555.
The Hilton hotel is located on the south bank of the Tyne immediately next to the high and low level bridges, with pedestrian access to the heart of Newcastle’s historic old castle district and the many riverbank attractions. It is close to the Sage Centre, galleries, museums, shops, bars and restaurants making the location perfect for a family day out. Family or friends not interested in the photographic show can find plenty to do within minutes of the Hilton, which makes a great base for activities. This is also one of the most photogenic spots at any time of day or night with great city and river views directly from the Hilton’s terraces.
