Bournemouth, UK

Bournemouth (http://www.bournemouth.co.uk/) is a large coastal resort town in the county of Dorset, on the south coast of England. According to the 2001 Census, the town has a population of 163,444, making it the largest settlement in Dorset. The city, with a wide offering of hotels and B&Bs, is well connected to the rest of UK through regular and low-cost railway and highway. Its modern international airport is conveniently located at only 20 minutes from downtown and the conference center.  

BournemouthBournemouth is a tourist and regional centre for leisure, entertainment, culture and recreation. Bournemouth is located directly to the east of the Jurassic Coast (http://www.jurassiccoast.com/ ), a 95-mile (153 km) section of beautiful and largely unspoilt coastline recently designated a World Heritage Site. Bournemouth sea front overlooks Poole Bay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poole_Bay) and the Isle of Wight (http://www.isleofwighttouristguide.com/). Bournemouth also has 7 miles (11 km) of sandy beaches that run from Hengistbury Head (http://www.hengistbury-head.co.uk/hengistbury-head-intro.php) in the east to Sandbanks, in Poole, in the west.  

The mild climate of the region and the vicinity of beaches with white sands and crystal clear sea are a huge reward for PRO-VE 2012 attendees.
