CHS Leeds has announced a new partnership that will see the show’s legendary Welcome Reception take place at the University of Leeds’ new venue, Cloth Hall Court. The reception will take place on the evening of 24th April, before the show opens, and gives Hosted Buyers and exhibitors a chance to network informally ahead of the event.
The Welcome Reception at CHS events has always kicked off the event with an innovative, creative, and valuable networking opportunity for exhibitors and Hosted Buyers. Meanwhile, Cloth Hall Court itself represents a taste of Leeds heritage, a fully restored Grade II listed building steeped in rich and fascinating history, vital to Leeds becoming a global centre of commerce and trade in textiles.
The event will be a celebration, both of Leeds and the surrounding area, but also the city’s growing business events scene. Cloth Hall Court is representative of this scene, following investments into the venue, it now has state-of-the art technical facilities including, assisted accessibility, excellent catering options, and a synergy with businesses and brands from a diverse range of industries, all in keeping with Leeds’s industrial heritage and reputation for innovation.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone connected to CHS Leeds to Cloth Hall Court,” commented Sam Glenister-Batey, Head of Conferences and Events at the University of Leeds. “We’re really excited about what we have here, and we know everyone will be bowled over by the venue, the work we’ve done on our meetings and events product, and the quality of the hospitality we provide. It will be a great night.”
