Well Met has also seen 250% revenue growth in the last five years. The city centre venue is just two minutes’ walk from Leeds train station.

The Herringbone Suite and Tweed Suite can seat 200 and 100 delegates cabaret style respectively.

Leeds has recently been named fifth best conferencing city in the UK (BMEIS), with the growth of academic venues being cited as a key factor.

Commenting on the opening, Clare Vidler, conferencing manager for Well Met, said: "We’re delighted with the finished article and especially proud of the work that the Well Met team put into the finishing details, which are an integral part of the overall feel of Cloth Hall Court. Investing in fantastic facilities for our customers is something we’re constantly working to provide to a high level, and we feel that we’ve achieved this with Cloth Hall Court.

"Moving into the dedicated conferencing environment with a brand new facility was initially daunting, so it’s with great pride that I can say that the transition over here from the University has been made all the smoother due to our fabulous team. We’re now looking forward to a busy few months welcoming visitors and guests and hosting some fabulous conferences."
