International inward visit organising and hosting

•         Give your international business guests a unique, local experience

•         Enrich their stay and increase your business impact

•         Saves you time and reduces your workload


We design and provide tailored support for introductions, meetings, presentations and study trips – and to see and enjoy the attractions of one of Europe’s most fascinating, historic and lively mid-size cities. Let us help you get to the right places, explore the right projects and meet the right people.

What do we do?

When working with a client we begin by establishing the international visitors’ areas of interest and the expectations of all involved. We then create a tailor-made programme that blends business and social activities, and harnesses and maximises connections.

Better Visits Testimonials

Thank you for arranging an outstanding programme. You have raised the bar for this type of international study visit by one hundred per cent, no by two hundred per cent !

Folkpartiet, Vastra Gotaland, Sweden

“We would now like to develop the partnership further and welcome young people from Newcastle on work placements in Montpellier. We could never have got to this stage without International Newcastle’s involvement.”

Montpellier Training School, France

The cross-cultural awareness sessions provided a really useful insight into the country that I was lucky enough to call home for a year. Each workshop introduced and celebrated the diversity within the UK and our global culture. I was able to embrace the contrasts between life in the US and UK which helped me to smoothly adjust into my new home. These sessions were fun, informative, and gave me an increased appreciation for the differing aspects of my culture and the rest of the world!

Thank you for your time and all your hard work for making the Kuwait visit happen, I’m sure there will be future cooperation between the two channels.
