We’re committed to making CTA events as accessible and inclusive as possible. We want as many CTA members, partners and stakeholders as possible to be able to attend and participate in this year’s conference. And we believe it’s important that CTA gets out and about across the country.
So, that’s why we’re holding it this year in Perth – which is 90 minutes by rail or road from 90% of Scotland’s population – at a venue which is fully wheelchair accessible and boasts excellent and easy connections to public transport.
The Station Hotel is right next door to Perth Train Station. Its front entrance is less than 100 yards from the station exit.
