Workshop Event Details

Where to park:

If you refer to the campus map attached, we suggest parking at the X symbol. This is an undercover carpark located off Baker Street and is free parking. Please follow the arrows and walk along the path through K1.

Where the event is located:

Once you cross the pedestrian crossing, keep walking straight ahead (W Building will be on the right side). When you get to the corner of W Building, please turn right, and follow the path. Walk through the electric sliding doors and an elevator will be on the left. I have marked the elevator on the map with a black dot.

As you enter the elevator, please select Level 4. Once you step out onto Level 4, toilets will be on the left side and Room W413 will be straight ahead and then the first left turn. Please note that a member of our team will be at the bottom of W Block to assist with directions.

What to bring:

Just yourself, your business idea and a laptop/tablet/sketch pad if it helps to get the juices flowing. We’ll provide the rest, including sustenance to keep you going.
