Now that we’ve piqued your interest, let’s have a look at what kind of conference venues you can find in Leeds. As this is the city with the fastest-growing private sector economy across the UK, business hotels of all kinds compete with each other. All of them offer their conference spaces for hire at reasonable prices and with ever-improving amenities. Further away from the city centre, in Holbeck and Meanwood, you’ll also find community centres and halls available for hire. This is usually a good option for those looking to customise their space a bit further than in a hotel. To top it all off, Leeds is home to a variety of theatres available for hire. These are perfect for presentation-style meetings where you need to seat a few dozen people in comfort for long periods of time.
A good area to start, as you might imagine, is right in the heart of the financial quarter (if you don’t mind paying a bit of a premium on price). The facilities there are more than accustomed to catering to any needs of even the most unusual conferences. The City Centre Loop is a good metric to find a space, as it will ensure your guests are easily able to get there. You can also check out the area around Cloth Hall Court near Leeds Law School. In there you’ll find a variety of venues there that are used to hosting large groups of students and visiting businesses. For a bit more variety, head on down the Headrow, see what’s on offer, and choose from the more out-of-the-ordinary conference venues down that way.
By now you’re probably starting to get a few ideas for where you’d like to hire your conference venue and what kind of space you’re looking for. Now it would be good to take look at how much you should be expecting to pay. Naturally, the price will depend on the size of the conference venue you’re looking to book. Generally speaking, hourly hire rates range from £35 to £120 per hour or from £300 to £800 per day for most conference spaces in Leeds. (All data from Tagvenue.com)
Each conference venue may come equipped differently, but usually, you will find a high-speed internet connection, screens and projectors, whiteboards and flipcharts, conference call facilities and A/V equipment, including mics and speakers. Some venues may have kitchen facilities available or provide a break-out space and kitchenette for guests to use. To ensure the venue has everything you need for your conference, talk to the venue manager before you make your final booking.
