Become a Leeds Conference Ambassador.

Securing and hosting a conference in Leeds is an achievement worth celebrating. Individuals who bring the best of their field to our city have the opportunity to expand their networks, increase their standing, demonstrate their skill and expertise, and be recognised as a leading voice in their industry. That’s exactly what our Conference Ambassadors achieve, through successful events hosted in our vibrant city.

Why become an Ambassador?

It’s our job to help you...

  • Be recognised as a leader in your field of expertise
  • Showcase your institution to global leaders within your industry
  • Establish worldwide links and partnerships

If all that sounds like something worth working for, then why not become a Leeds Conference Ambassador?
