The sixth International History of Public Relations Conference (IHPRC) will be held on Wednesday, July 8 and Thursday, July 9 2015 at Bournemouth University in Dorset, England. Register your attendance online here.

The International History of Public Relations Conference is organised by the Public Relations Research Group in Bournemouth University’s Media School. It is an annual opportunity for scholars, historians and interested practitioners from around the world to meet, hear papers and discuss the history of public relations.

Travel to Bournemouth

Delegates from outside the UK mostly fly into Heathrow Airport, which is London’s main airport, and then travel to Bournemouth by train, express coach or hire car. From Heathrow, there are regular National Express coaches from the airport’s central bus station and terminals 4 and 5 to Bournemouth. They stop at the transport interchange near the town’s rail station; don’t go on to the coach stop at the university. From Bournemouth station, it’s a short taxi trip to the conference hotel. There is a RailAir coach service from the Heathrow terminals to Woking rail station where you catch the train to Bournemouth.

Others spend a few days in London as tourists and then take a train from London Waterloo station to Bournemouth (with a terminus of Weymouth). Journey time is around 1hr 50min. London Waterloo is on the underground Tube network on the Northern, Bakerloo and Jubilee lines.

Bournemouth has a limited range of scheduled flights mainly in the UK and nearby Europe, including Dublin. It is possible to fly into Paris or Amsterdam and get a connection to Southampton. Immediately by that airport, you can catch a train west to Bournemouth about 40 minutes away.
