Newcastles of the World (NOTW) is an important partner to International Newcastle and we are pleased to provide administrative and other support to the alliance whenever needed. First established in the 1980s, NOTW is an international network of towns and cities with the name Newcastle (in many different languages of course).


In summer 2012, here in Newcastle Upon Tyne, we hosted the bi-annual convention of NOTW. Over 100 people from 10 different Newcastles met for a week long programme of interaction, business link-ups, shared learning, discussions and cultural experiences. People travelled from as far afield as Australia, Japan, South Korea, South Africa and Canada. A youth conference ran in parallel to the adult conference. International Newcastle provided accounting and other support to the event.
