A huge thank you to you and your team for hosting us at University House. This is the first time a first time a World Series Triathlon event has been hosted in Leeds andwas hugely important to us in order to welcome our partners. The welcome and drinks reception was presented warmly by your team. The dinner itself was delicious, presented beautifully and number of our international guests commented on this. Service was both efficient and discreet, I could not have hoped for better. It is our hope that the partnership between The University of Leeds and British Triathlon continues to develop and grow both in terms of sport and business development.
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!
Your attention to detail astounds me – from when we first muted the idea with you Anthony until John’s team put the last plate on the table – everything has been superb. The presentation of the room on Saturday was tasteful and offered the right tone to the day.
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.
Great place to stay while in Leeds – friendly, helpful staff – clean, comfortable room – convenient location for University of Leeds events. 5/5

Very clean, easy to book, easy to get there, good quality bedroom, slept amazing – just can’t fault it! 5/5
Your conference staff were outstanding and a real credit. It is true to say their professionalism was a talking point of the UUK conference. My thanks to them all.
In terms of logistics and organization, a tremendous job was done by MEETinLEEDS, whose professional help and experience made APTS possible
Thank you and all of your team for your excellent support at the UUK Annual Conference. We were impressed by the professionalism and friendliness of your staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation and food were extremely good and all these things combined made for a very successful event.
Thank you for hosting our GB & Key Partner Forum and for organising the refreshments and lunch it was a great success. We very much look forward to using you facilities in the future.
Many thanks for your team who made our annual dinner such a success. Everyone enjoyed the occasion and they complemented you and your team for your efficiency and high standard of cuisine. Thank you again. If entrusted with organising next year’s dinner, I would like to think I could co-ordinate with you in a similar fashion.
A huge thank you to MEETinLEEDS for delivering such a great conference! I enjoyed working with you very much, and I’m really happy with how smoothly & professionally our event was run. Perfect!
Thank you for making our event such a huge success. The planning of the event was made really easy by your professional Sales & Marketing Team who were always happy to help. The venue was perfect for us and looked incredible and the food was beautiful with a fantastic choice available and excellent service. We would definitely hope to hold any of our future events at the Refectory. Thank you from the Estates & Facilities Directorate at St James’s Hospital
The dinner was excellent and the service very professional and discreet – it was a lovely end to what had been a successful day.
The concept of sitting at a dining table whilst listening to the songs in a concert hall was totally unexpected and thoroughly enjoyable. The food was excellent, very well prepared and good value for our money (much better and more than the billed ‘light supper’ suggested)… …The ‘listen while you dine’ format worked wonderfully well, and I very much hope that it is repeated (often!). Big congratulations to everyone concerned with the arrangements, the catering and of course the performance.
Every year, the Leeds University conference and events team provide us with a brilliant service when we hold our graduation ceremony. The venue is good value for money and the team are extremely helpful – nothing is ever too much trouble and the level of support we receive helps us to ensure one of our flagship events always runs smoothly. I can’t sing their praises highly enough.
The lovely ladies in Parkinson Court were so accommodating at the recent Graduate Jobs and Internship Fair. Their welcoming smiles and excellent customer service skills really made the day.
On the day, we had a “full house” of 47 trainee Orthopaedic Surgeons sitting the exam. It would have been impossible for me, on my own, to have logged in all the PC’s at the same time as recording the doctors’ names on my register. The UKITE exam is an important national event, so I was a bit concerned about everything going to plan etc., but I needn’t have worried – I found the I.T. Support staff extremely helpful. As a result, it all went very smoothly, and I did in fact receive a message from one of our doctors to thank me for how organised it all was!
Thanks again for everything ICFS10!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for working so hard and helping to create an excellent, memorable and well-run conference. It really was one of the best organized i have ever attended. Thanks again for all your hard work. It paid off.
We will not hesitate to contact you again should we be planning such a big event. Many thanks for your help and support.
Thank you for all your help with the bookings and catering for the 3rd University of Leeds Student Education Conference. I am pleased to tell you that we had our best attendance yet of 447 delegates and the feedback has been excellent! I would just like to say a big thank you to you and your team for the smooth running and professional service before and on the day. It really does make all the difference.
I just wanted to send a heartfelt thank you for all of your help, advice, time and general conference wisdom over the last few months, especially the last two days. The conference would seem to have been a success, in no small part to the role of you and your team. I will be recommending you to anyone who asks and anyone who doesn’t!
What are the benefits of the University’s conference management services? “Peace of mind, attention to detail, professional competency and knowledge, impressive and welcoming front to delegates, financial and accounting proficiency and the ability to answer the variety of questions posed by delegates
It is no exaggeration to say that the use of the University’s Conference Management Service… proved vital to the success of the event. Many plaudits were received from delegates both during the conference and subsequently.
Everyone has commented on what a great year this year at Leeds has been…… I don’t think I could fault anything!!
Storm Jameson Court was of the highest standard that I have personally seen in University halls…
Please pass on our congratulations to your Catering Team, we had so many compliments about the lunch, I lost count! We have never had such imaginative and beautifully crafted sandwiches served at any of our events – ever!
Thanks for all your help and support for our conference which has been largely successful. It turned into an international conference in the end, with people coming from Australia and the US to participate, and it seems everybody enjoyed it.
Thanks to you and the team who provided the service for our event. It went a long way to making our event a success and we had a number of complementary comments on the excellent standard of the cuisine. Already you have got us thinking about our next event. It was excellent.
Thanks for organising our recent courses at Ellerslie Hall. The staff were extremely helpful and polite, it was a refreshing change!
I would like to thank you and your colleagues for making the conference so successful. The catering was perfect, the delegates were relaxed and comfortable and everyone was impressed by the Hall and surroundings. Thank you for making our visit a very memorable and successful one
When there is a commercial need to introduce a business or industry to the University our experience shows this is best done on campus through University House. It provides a quality service, great cuisine and an experience customers will cherish and remember.
The facilities were fantastic and the support we received from staff at the Hall of Residence was second to none. Not one person has uttered a word of complaint – testament in itself!
On behalf of all of us ‘Ladies’ who attended our Christmas Coffee Morning yesterday may I say a big THANK-YOU to you and all the staff at Devonshire who helped make it such a success. You are all so patient, kind and super-efficient. Yummee cakes, too!
Amazing, flawless conference organisation. Glad we chose MEETinLEEDS for our #ICFS10 venue.
