In order to make the conference geographically accessible for as many delegates as possible, Young Rider Focus 2019 will be held in the heart of the country at Villa Park, Birmingham - home of Aston Villa Football Club.
Villa Park, one of Europe’s oldest and most famous football stadiums, has a fantastic central location. It is less than two miles from the M6, with more than 1,000 car parking spaces on site - and just a few minutes’ walk from the nearest train station.
Wembley may be the spiritual home of English football - but Villa Park is a close second.
