I would like to thank you for all the support and guidance offered during our Spring Conference. I was very impressed by the professional approach and very high standard of catering and service we received at the University. The whole team has been a credit to you and to Leeds.

Lynda Couch-Smith Executive Officer - Universities Safety and Health Association

I just want to thank you for hosting the NASMA event so brilliantly.  Everyone who attended was impressed both with the venue and facilities. The organisation from start to finish was so easy and stress free, which makes a very welcome change to past events I have organised – so the behind the scenes work is really appreciated!

Alison JacksonStudent Education Service Manager, University of Leeds

A massive thank you to MEETinLEEDS for your help, advice, support and service you all provided in helping us to achieve a very successful event. The facilities, food and staff were great and everything was within a short walking distance.  We sincerely hope we are able to repeat the event in Leeds in the years ahead.

Thank you to the countless members of the team that made our Annual Dinner such a fabulous success. Everyone worked tirelessly to deliver a brilliant event and nothing was too much trouble for any of the team. Everyone was really impressed.

Angela Gault Regional Executive - Confederation of British Industry

The conference is well supported by MEETinLEEDS, the University Conference team: Leeds is one of the few city venues that have good disabled access for a high number of people who use wheelchairs and plenty of good quality accommodation to meet their needs.

Catherine HarrisChair of Communication Matters

The attention to detail was second to none.  I have had a very good feedback on both the conference venue and the accommodation from our trainer and delegates – we will certainly use this venue again.

Liz FoulisTraining Manager - Infection Control Training

A big ‘Thank You!’ for all of your teams help and support in aiding the Collaborations Workshop to take place. The venue was really ideal and all of your advice made the event run very smoothly. We would heartily recommend Leeds as a venue to colleagues and collaborators!
