Social Programme

A number of activities are planned as part of the social programme which will run alongside the conference. Details of these are available below.

CardiffMilleniumStadium.jpgMillennium Stadium Tour

Come and explore the magnificent facets and features that make the Millennium Stadium one of the most impressive icons of modern Wales.

Join one of our experienced tour guides and visit the Press Conference Suite where the worlds of rugby and journalism meet. Experience the build-up before the match in the Dragon's Lair, Wales' team dressing room. Hear the roar of 74,500 fans as you walk down the players' tunnel towards the hallowed turf. Learn about the only palletised pitch system and fully retractable roof in the UK, which allows the entire playing surface to be removed to create one of the world's largest indoor arenas.

Take in the view of the pitch from a VIP hospitality suite, and finally lift the trophy to the skies like a sporting superstar in the President's Box, an area normally reserved for royalty.

This tour will take place on Tuesday 30th June. To book your ticket please click here
