Car Parking

Attendees at the NWAA Conference must use Car Park E2.  All delegates can park here without having to display accreditation.

The conference is being held in the Trafford Suite, which can be accessed via the Munich Tunnel under the South Stand.  It is on the left hand side of the stadium as you leave Car Park E2 - follow the signs to the South Stand/Munich Tunnel.

For sponsors who need to unload equipment, they must forward the vehicle type, registration number and expected times for arrival and departure to Claire Lambert.  You will then be issued with a security pass which will enable you to access the tunnel in front of the conference rooms.  You will not be allowed access to the Munich tunnel in a vehicle without a pass.
