Or, alternatively you could do a Google search for "conference venues in
Bristol" for which the number one result is:

http://www.conference-bristol.co.uk/

<http://www.conference-bristol.co.uk/>Run by Destination Bristol. Has all
you need, I used this a lot in my previous life as MD of a conferencing and
travel business.

Make sure you haggle on rates, hard, as they are all struggling for
business, as well as payment terms.

Also if you need negotiating overnight stays I still know most of the hotel
GMs in the area and they would kill for a piece of a big city conference at
the moment now the Radisson has just opened with room nights at £75 for a
double.

Don't use Ashton Gate, as it will put off any north bristolians / gasheads
(assuming part of your audience is local)

cheers
