Leeds to host UK's largest educational research conference for 2016

ConferenceLeeds, the official conference desk for Leeds, has secured the UK's largest educational research conference for 2016 - The British Education Research Association (BERA).

The conference, which will take place over three days in September, will attract around 1,000 national and international delegates representing a wide range of academics, policy makers and practitioners, all engaged with a strong interest in educational research.

Marie Blythe, events manager for BERA, said: "We last held the conference at the University of Leeds in 2001. Leeds as a city is a perfect location for the BERA conference due to its strong educational links and vibrant cultural atmosphere. With the evolution of the BERA programme over the last 15 years, it is long overdue to hold our conference in Leeds once again and enjoy a city that works together to deliver an outstanding delegate experience."

Cllr Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, added: "ConferenceLeeds is continuing to attract a fantastic variety of events and conferences to the city through its unique, multi-venue, pro-active approach – and BERA is a great example of this. The association has strong national and international delegates, and has secured keynote delegates from the US, Australia and New Zealand and we’re very excited to welcome them to our city."
