Leeds sees major investment in event facilities

Published: 19 Jul 2018

ConferenceLeeds is celebrating a number of recent venue investments, which has seen a total of over £16 million going towards improving the city’s facilities. 

The investments include the introduction of a learning centre at Leeds Trinity University, a high-end spa at Rudding Park, and significant bedroom refurbishments at the Holiday Inn Express.

Leeds’ conferencing venues have also seen investment. 

The studioLeeds has undergone an expansion worth in excess of £170,000, which includes four new state-of-the-art event spaces, doubling its capacity to 185 delegates and offering an alternative conferencing venue to a traditional hotel. 

The Malmaison Leeds has launched its new meetings and events space, Work + Play, offering four meeting rooms and two soundproof glass pods. 

Leeds’ academic venues also continue to develop and thrive. 

Leeds Trinity University has invested £5.7 million in a new learning centre; a building that offers first-class and modern facilities ideal for not only teaching and learning, but also conferencing. 

Leeds College of Music has revamped its main performance space, The Venue, by adding a striking rooftop extension right in the heart of Leeds’ cultural quarter, offering increased capacity for more break-out facilities and catering provision.

Alongside this, further venues that have benefitted are some of Leeds’ most popular delegate accommodation destinations. 

One of the most significant additions has been the launch of a new spa at Rudding Park

Costing £9.5 million, the new Rudding Park Spa features a Roof Top Spa and Garden, offering an extensive range of thermotherapy and hydrotherapy experiences. 

Jennifer Young, Head of ConferenceLeeds, commented: “These are only a few examples of venue developments in Leeds, with constant innovation throughout the city all year round to ensure we have a competitive edge. There are only more exciting things to come, including new venues being added to our portfolio, such as a third Hilton hotel, set to open in 2019.”
