Shortly after I joined the conference sales team here at the University of Leeds; Lisa and I attended a course for two days of sales and marketing training. The training was very useful for my new role and I even got to bond with my new colleague over a glass of wine or two in the evening.
Back at the office we sat down with our manager and filled her in on our new found knowledge and expertise. After talking branding, target markets and question funneling our unanimous conclusion was: the most important thing at MEETinLEEDS is the added value we can offer our customers.
“In the sales and marketing office we work together with our enthusiastic event managers, award winning chefs and outstanding catering delivery team to make your event a success”
On campus we have so many excellent facilities available that can be booked and used by delegates – certainly adding extra value to any event! These include:
• A state of the art gym, swimming pool, squash courts and even a climbing wall!
• An outdoor sports park with over 100 acres of facilities.
• Two free permanent exhibitions on site (The Marks & Spencer’s Company Archive and the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery)
• Furthermore our campus offers: year round accommodation, hairdressers, nail bar, supermarket, nightclub, bars, bookshop, bank and numerous coffees bars.
The MEETinLEEDS team are a friendly and welcoming bunch; which was great for me being a new member.
