About the event:

Recently, we bid for a large international scholarly research conference for 2023. The event has previously been held in Barcelona, Berlin and Milan.

The entire Conference Leeds team has been incredibly helpful throughout the bidding process. All team members provided a service that exceeded our expectations. The team helped us to find suitable venues that could fit 350 participants, requested quotes from the venues, provided a draft budget, and prepared large parts of the bid document. The Conference Leeds teams did all of this in a very friendly and efficient manner. We will definitely work with them again in preparation for the next academic conference.
