Leeds Hotel and Venues Association (LHVA) today revealed plans for the UK’s biggest domestic familiarisation trip.
The event will take place from Thursday 13th – Sunday 16th June 2013 and will see the city host the first ever Leeds Big Sleepover, a showcase of all that Leeds has to offer for business and leisure tourism.
Conference buyers, agencies, media and bloggers from all over the UK will be invited to take part in a weekend of celebration across more than 30 of the city’s hotels and venues.
The itinerary will not only include key networking opportunities at Leeds Arena and Trinity Leeds but also the chance to experience Leeds hospitality at its best.
Restaurants, bars, theatres, salons and spas are just a few of the local businesses who are on board for the event of the year.
Gordon Jackson, chair of LHVA said, ‘Leeds is the largest centre for legal, financial and business services outside of London with excellent networks via road, rail and air. We are the perfect choice for all conferencing and business needs and the Leeds Big Sleepover will certainly be memorable for all those who take part!’
This year will see the opening of the new Arena which is an £80million 13,500 capacity venue at the heart of the city and one that has been eagerly anticipated by the people of the region.
Ailsa Oliver, Assistant General Manager of Leeds Arena said, ‘This is a great idea and the perfect opportunity for us to showcase the Arena to a national audience. We look forward to welcoming our visitors and giving them the famous Yorkshire experience!’
