Yorkshire South celebrates event quadruple

Recently formed convention bureau Conference Yorkshire South (CYS) is celebrating its busiest period to date, with the announcement of four conferences this month, including three medical events held in conjunction with its ambassadors from the city’s teaching hospitals. “It’s the culmination of a lot of hard work – our team have been very busy getting themselves known in the industry and it has done a very good job,” said CYS chief executive Richard Jones, before adding that the positive trend is set to continue. “We are seeing a lot of growth in knowledge-based conferences, driven by our academic links and those in the local business community in South Yorkshire. We are seeing a lot of interest from the sports, metals and medical sectors.” The work kicks off with the Obstetric Anaesthetists Association Conference from the 6-8 June at Sheffield City Hall, quickly followed by the 8th International Conference on Multiaxial Fatigue and Fracture, which comes to the UK for the first time on 10-14 June, and then UK NEQAS Blood Coagulation’s annual scientific meeting – both at Sheffield Hallam University. The National Convention for Safer Communities, running from the 19-21 June at Sheffield City Hall and Cutlers’ Hall rounds off the quartet. Elsewhere the Yorkshire South region also plays hosts to corporate team event the Microsoft UK Challenge from 20-24 June, and Sheffield stages the UK Corporate Games, from 29 June to 1 July. The city’s Hallam FM Arena hosts the International Indian Film Association Awards on June 9.
