York’s Key Business 06 Strengths

Aimee Bennett and Laura Freer VisitYork4Meetings

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the York Conference and Events Guide – the definitive guide to holding a successful event in York. As York enthusiasts, we are thrilled to present to you our fabulous city and the inspiring possibilities it offers as a destination for business events. York is one of England’s finest and most beautiful historic cities. Dating back to the Romans in AD71, York has long been a city of great importance and a meeting place for over 2000 years. Modern day York continues to thrive and has one of the strongest economies in the North of England. More than £800m of investment in the past decade has helped to transform the city into an international hub for science and technology, and a growing centre for enterprise, creativity and commerce. Old meets new in York’s cosmopolitan centre, where ancient medieval architecture and contemporary culture come together. The city’s historic charm is complemented by an abundance of diverse dining spots, quirky independent shops and modern bars, all contained within the magnificent circuit of 13th-century walls and overlooked by the breathtaking York Minster. In this guide, we will introduce you to the inspiring possibilities available for conferences, meetings and events of all sizes and provide you with details of our VisitYork4Meetings service. With a collective experience in professional conference organisation of over 30 years and in-depth local knowledge of the city and surrounding area, we are the official city conference bureau and your York event experts.

I have been holding the annual PCR Conference in York for over 10 years now and I choose York for various reasons, but mainly because of the amazing variety of unique venues, plus its accessible location on the East coast mainline. Even after 10 years I always seem to discover something different that I wasn’t aware of! I also get fantastic support from the team at VisitYork4Meetings, who are always on hand to advise me, when I need it. Helen Livesley | Primary Care Rheumatology Society

Why York? Exciting Venues From majestic ancient buildings such as York Minster, The King’s Manor and two medieval guildhalls, to state-of-the-art facilities at the University of York and a host of internationalstandard hotels, York has an unrivalled choice of venues. Gather in the elegant surroundings of the world-famous Bettys Café and Tea Rooms, or debate in style at the Mansion House, official residence of the Lord Mayor of York. In the evening, impress your delegates with an unforgettable experience as they dine amongst the locomotives at the National Railway Museum. Pull up a chair on Kirkgate, a reconstructed Victorian Street at York Castle Museum, or host a medieval banquet fit for a King in the Merchant Adventurers’ Hall. Located in the Heart of the UK York is easily accessible from anywhere in the UK and with an abundance of travel routes on offer, it is actually much closer than you think. Centrally located on the UK rail network, from London Kings Cross you’ll be within York’s historic City Walls in under two hours and travelling south from Edinburgh we’ll see you in two hours 20 minutes. York is well served by the M1 and A1 motorways midway between London and Scotland and has six international airports within easy reach, with direct flights from London Heathrow to Leeds Bradford Airport for international travellers.

Ideal for Multi-Venue Events Compact and pedestrianised, York is the ideal setting for a multi-venue conference. Most of the venues, hotels and accommodation providers are accessible on foot from York railway station and you’ll find attractions, shops and restaurants dotted around inbetween. It’s actually possible to walk across the walled centre in just 20 minutes, meaning your delegates will see and experience more of the city during their visit. Thrilling Delegate Experiences York has more to see and do per square mile than any other UK city and provides a huge array of options for some truly entertaining delegate social programmes, team building and corporate hospitality. From haunted ghost walks to tea-tasting at Bettys or travelling back in time at JORVIK, your delegates will be spoilt for choice and may even decide to stay on a little longer. York’s popularity as an internationally recognised tourist destination will undoubtedly attract more delegates to your event and boost attendee figures.

Social Programmes, Team Building and Incentive Travel

As part of the Magistrates Association annual conference we arranged an appealing social programme for partners. With such an extensive range of options available in York, we were really spoilt for choice. But with help and advice from VisitYork4Meetings we devised a really interesting itinerary which included a ghost walk, lunch at Bedern Hall, a YorkBoat cruise and a guided tour of the Minster! Martyn Weller | Magistrates Association

Climb the 275 steps to the top of the Minster Central Tower and explore its intriguing Undercroft or see the city from a different perspective with a leisurely YorkBoat cruise along the River Ouse. For the foodie types, York has an array of gastronomic experiences. Sample some proper Yorkshire beer on a Brewtown brewery tour or try your hand at a chocolate making workshop with York’s Chocolate Story. Afterwards, settle down to a delicious meal in one of York’s many fine-dining restaurants. Alternatively, venture beyond York and discover the breath-taking Yorkshire countryside. Discover fascinating coastline, historic houses and many other attractions in the wider region.
