One of the top UK Conference Destinations and home of CHS, a visit to Leeds will leave you with something special.
Recognised as one of the top UK Conference Destinations and one of Rough Guide’s best travel destinations in 2023, a visit to Leeds will leave you with something special. A unique experience. Or an eye-opening discovery. From a conferencing venue rich with heritage and history, to world-class cultural and sporting events, or a taste of the local food scene.
This year welcomes LEEDS 2023, a year-long celebration of culture, promising a whole host of events
and experiences that business and leisure visitors can enjoy to immerse themselves in local life. The planned programme will celebrate and transform the city’s identity locally, nationally, and internationally – creating a lasting legacy of cultural, economic and social impact.
To shine a light on the exceptional experiences that are on offer in the city, Conference Leeds, the conferencing bureau for the city of Leeds, has welcomed the return of the #ExploreLeeds campaign.
The campaign includes a four-part film series created to illustrate the unrivalled delegate experiences on offer in the city and to encourage those visiting the city on business to extend their stay or return as a leisure visitor to explore everything the city has to offer.
The films follow a Visit Leeds survey which found that nine in 10 business visitors would visit Leeds again with their family or friends for a short trip. The four films in the series showcase standout destinations and things to see in the city, including, the Grade I listed Leeds Corn Exchange, home to independent stores and eateries, Leeds Kirkgate Market, the biggest indoor market in Europe, and walking tours to view the fantastic array of street art and the stunning architecture of the Victorian Arcades.
Delegates can also enjoy days out that are easily accessible from the city and take in the beauty of the rolling Yorkshire Dales National Park, visit the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, or Haworth, the home of the Bronte sisters. The films also showcase a selection of Leeds’ award- winning dining destinations which earned Leeds its reputation as ‘Foodie Capital of the North’, to encourage visitors to journey further and see the best attractions on offer while in the heart of the North.
#ExploreLeeds will be launched at CHS Leeds, which returns to the city on the 25th April at the Royal Armouries, and will also be available to view online at: Conferenceleeds.co.uk/exploreleeds
