Jennifer Young, Head of ConferenceLeeds, commented: “We are delighted with the success of Leeds’ academic venues at the recent Academic Venue Awards and congratulate the teams on their wins. These accolades showcase the prowess and quality of the educational conferencing facilities that we have here in the city. The four universities play a significant role in Leeds’ conferencing market and it is great to see them being rewarded.”
