Rich with heritage, history and culture, Leeds is a city that boasts an exceptional conferencing proposition in a modern destination, in the heart of the UK. Over the last 18 months, Leeds’ venues have demonstrated great resilience and are looking forward to welcoming delegates back as restrictions ease. To reassure organisers and their delegates, venues have worked hard to adapt their conference offering and developed new ways of working to deliver secure, accessible and enjoyable conference experiences in a post-Covid landscape. Over 45 of Leeds’ venues have secured Visit Britain’s Good to Go accreditation, including the Independent Venues of Leeds Group; Duke Studios, Horizon, Leeds College of Music, Northern Ballet, Shine and The Studio.
The city is also delighted to see the reopening of two of its venues following refurbishment programmes, including one of its landmark venues The Queens Hotel, which has undergone a £16 million pound modernisation to enhance its offering and the Leeds Marriott Hotel which has unveiled a full refurbishment of it’s conference, bedroom and dining facilities.
The city is celebrating this summer following recent Government announcements that Leeds will be home to the UK’s first infrastructure bank as well as The Bank of England’s Northern Hub and to the BBC, ahead of its move to the city this year.
As a leading hub for healthcare, technology, manufacturing, financial services and the digital economy, Leeds’ venues span world-class academic Universities, historic hubs and independent venues and benefits from unrivalled shopping, food and drink and sustainability practices. Home to Leeds Bradford Airport, which welcomes flights from over 70 destinations and Leeds Train Station, which provides great access to and from all parts of the UK, it’s easy to see why many organisers choose Leeds as it’s meeting and events destination.
