Events for the web industry

happening in Newport, South Wales

Where is Newport?

The Port80 & Localhost events are based in Newport, South Wales at the University of Wales, Newport’s new City Campus. The campus was opened in March 2011 and has state-of-the-art specialist technical facilities. It’s a lovely new building and it’s the ideal venue.

Extensive travel instructions can be found on the Uni website. Please remember though! You are heading towards the new City Campus building which is slap bang in the middle of Newport; NOT the other University buildings in Caerleon!.
