Delegate experience

Leeds has much more to offer your delegates than just meeting space. Crowned the unofficial capital of Yorkshire and named by Lonely Planet ‘Top 10 must visit European City in 2017’ the city offers an irresistible mixture of old and new providing the ideal environment for leisurely exploration. This, coupled with amazing attractions, some of the best shopping in the UK and an outstanding range of galleries, means there’s plenty for delegates to sink their teeth into when the conference programme takes a break.
