    Event Promotion

    Hosting an event at TRI? We can help you promote it to TRI members via our range of physical and digital communications channels. There are competing events every week at TRI, so we can't guarantee attendance to your event, but we can help you get the word out to our audience. We also advise you to invite your own networks and seek guests via other methods to compliment our promotional campaigns.


    We work with a handful of companies who know where we are, the facilities available and the unique challenges of catering an event at the TRI. You're welcome to use your own catering, or choose from one of our previous suppliers.

    > Ask for a list of catering contacts when you make your booking

    Parking Permit

    We have a limited number of carparks available for visitor use, these can be booked via the form or by visiting reception.

    Science Poster Templates

    Some of you told us that Powerpoint just wasn't enough for poster design, but you don't have access to design tools like Adobe InDesign. We created these basic Google Docs poster templates using their Google Presentations and Drawing tools. Accessible from anywhere in the world, on any computer or digital device, these templates make poster collaboration easy with sharing and permissions managed by Google. If you use Gmail or a Google account, you will be able to save these templates to your own Google Drive and edit them as you need.
