Well Met Conferencing is the conferencing office for Leeds Beckett University. Cloth Hall Court will be designed with the building’s significant textile heritage in mind, combining architecture with state-of-the-art technology and a versatile space. 

The multi-million-pound refurbishment of one of Leeds' most historic sites will serve as both a conference centre for events along as well as being the new Yorkshire premises of The Institute of Directors (IoD).

Set in the heart of Leeds, Cloth Hall Court is a two-minute walk from Leeds Railway Station and will have a maximum capacity of 300 delegates with four floors of conference space, along with state-of-the-art AV technology, wi-fi and VIP parking on-site. Taking influence from the building’s textile heritage, rooms will be themed with cloth in mind; names include Tweed, Herringbone and Wool. 

Kate Davis, head of business development campus & residential services at Well Met Conferencing said: "It’s incredibly exciting to be able to announce the opening of Cloth Hall Court. We have enjoyed working on the project, so to see the hard work come to fruition in one of the city’s most impressive buildings is extremely rewarding. As business tourism continues to grow in the north of England, our services are more in demand than ever before and we are confident that our newest venue will meet the demand for high quality, flexible event space in the centre of Leeds."
