Journey times by train from London have been cut to just over two hours while Leeds Bradford International Airport is only eight miles from the city centre, and delegates can fly in direct from over 60 destinations.

With its historic collections and waterfront setting, the Royal Armouries offers a unique conference and exhibition venue. Saviles Hall at the Royal Armouries has 27,000sq ft of exhibition space and is able to accommodate conferences for over 1,000 delegates.

Leeds is a favourite destination for conference delegates with lots to occupy their free time including fantastic shopping and a lively, European-style café scene.
In the evening delegates can choose from a great range of bars and restaurants, some of the best clubbing outside London, theatre at West Yorkshire Playhouse and the magnificent Leeds Grand Theatre, or performances by Opera North and Northern Ballet.
