Welcome to Leeds
Welcome to the magnificent city of Leeds, the second most popular conferencing destination in the north of England and where no two conferences are the same!
Leeds is a modern city with a rich industrial past. Compact and accessible you can walk everywhere and experience culture at its best. Delegates can unwind and continue networking in a vibrant city centre famous for an eclectic and fast growing independent food and drink scene.
The city boasts an exciting venue portfolio, from world-class academic Universities, historic civic venues such as Leeds Town Hall and unique experiences such as at Headingley Rugby and Cricket Stadium.
Centrally located in the heart of the UK, the city is attractive to both national and international delegates. Leeds is only a two-hour train journey from London or one hour by air. Leeds Bradford Airport also offers excellent transport links with national and international flights to over 70 international destinations and eight UK destinations.
To connect with our city is to experience the exceptional. Unique venues, and radical innovators. The forefront of tech, and the hub of healthcare. Culture and sport. Heritage and heart. The epicentre of the modern North. An independent spirit, with an international vision.
