Host your next business meeting or conference in Leeds

A modern city with a rich industrial past, Leeds has transformed itself into a thriving business hub and one of the top ten most popular conference destinations in the UK. 

Its central location, approximately halfway between London and Edinburgh, makes Leeds the perfect place to meet. From unique and historic backdrops to state-of-the-art conference hotels, planners will find spaces to accommodate events of all types. 

Leeds is a wonderful place for delegates to explore during free time. The city has a compact center, which is ripe for discovery, with a strong food and drink scene and an abundance of culture and heritage – Leeds boasts more listed buildings than any other English city outside of London.

Perfectly located for both international and domestic business meetings

Leeds is at the heart of an easily accessible network of road, rail, and air transport, making it an attractive destination for both national and international delegates. 

The city sits at the crossroads of the M1 and the M62 motorways, connecting north and south, east and west. By train, a range of fast intercity services connects Leeds to the rest of the UK. Delegates can travel direct from London in just over two hours and Edinburgh in under three hours. 

Flights arrive at Leeds Bradford Airport from over 70 overseas destinations, with the international hubs of Dublin and Amsterdam Schiphol an hour away. Flying into Manchester Airport is just as easy, with swift train links straight into the center of Leeds.
