INNSiDE is a collection of balanced lifestyle hotels for work, play and wellbeing – or anything in between. Catering to a variety of people from Work Trippers and City Breakers to Social Explorers and Party Chasers.

Located on the historical Quayside, offering breathtaking views across the River Tyne, INNSiDE Newcastle brings a slice of continental life to the heart of the city. The hotel is also home to Gino D’Acampo Quayside, a stylish and atmospheric 90-cover restaurant headed up by the UK’s favourite Italian chef and restaurateur, Gino D’Acampo.

INNSiDE provides guests with all the everyday essentials and extra-special details to make their stay all the more unique. From in-room considered comforts to the inspired – and inspiring – creative meeting spaces, Open Living Lounges, and fitness studios, we allow guests to feel more-than-at-home.

Each of the INNSiDE hotels celebrates the culture of its unique location, enriched with music, art and wellness curated by the hotel’s local experts. In May 2021, INNSiDE Newcastle launched with several creative collaborations including North East Art Collective, illustrator Lines Behind and visionary product designers Atomhawk.



See what previous attendees said about our conferences:

As a long time member of the PA Hub, I find the conferences an invaluable source of information. They are a great way to meet and interact with other likeminded assistants and I have always come away with something new.


PA - Lloyds Banking Group

Excellent Day with inspirational Speakers and good to get out of the office for the day and remind ourselves of the value we add in our profession and that the only person stopping us is us!



Fabulous! A great conference with insightful and inspiring speakers. Really useful for my role as an EA.


EA - CFG Law

The PA Hub Conference was an incredibly valuable experience for me. It was a great opportunity to hear from some amazing speakers and to network with like-minded individuals. The event was seamlessly organised and a fantastic learning experience from beginning to end - highly recommend attending PA Hub events.


PA - University of Edinburgh

A great event which me and my team thoroughly enjoyed.


Senior Executive Assistant - Places for People

The PA Hub Conference was a fantastic event from the organisation, speakers and venue. It was great to network with the membership but also with those that attended from outside of The PA Hub.
