NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau has scored a major coup with the loan of football legend Peter Beardsley who will join them at International Confex 2009, the event industry's largest UK trade exhibition.
 
The former England and Newcastle United star will join the Convention Bureau team on the first day of the exhibition at London’s Earls Court on Tuesday, February 24, to help promote NewcastleGateshead as a world-class conference and meetings destination.
 
Jessica Roberts, head of business tourism at NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau, said: “We are delighted to have Peter join us at this major international show where we can promote our destination’s key conference strengths and pedigree directly to some of the leading national and international conference buyers. He is such a fantastic ambassador for the area and so passionately proud of it.”
