Client testimonials

"A massive thank you for your venue and staff for the help and assistance with the BAUS Section of Trainees Conference. As the organiser, I can not speak highly enough of the venue and staff. From the stewards who were attentive and helpful, to the catering staff who were always on top of timings and layout and also extremely friendly and accommodating, it really did make all the difference. Our delegate feedback comments spoke of a great ‘atmosphere’ and ‘vibe’ throughout the meeting, which I think the venue has a lot to do with. Most of all to the audiovisual staff who, without, the event simply would not have run. Our delegates are not the most easy going clientele to deal with, and they all dealt with every request and instruction that was thrown at them with incredible calmness and promptness. I can not thank them enough for the help and support they provided tirelessly throughout the whole meeting. Last but certainly not least, the event coordinator. From always diligently replying to all my copious amounts of emails in the lead up to the event, as well as their organisation and problem solving skills on-site, it really was a pleasure to work with them. Again, from all of BAUS and BSoT delegates and staff thank you for helping us put on a successful event."
British Association of Urological Surgeons

"We could not have asked for more from the LCoM team. They made all the pre-event planning easy and accommodated all of our requests. The end result was a fantastic event that ran smoothly from start to finish. We were very happy and importantly, our guests were very impressed as well. Thank you."
China-Britain Business Council

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything LCoM put into making sure things went smoothly and ensuring that our conference was a success. Everyone loved being in the space, we were all looked after really well, the signage was really clear and the team made things very easy!"
One Dance UK

"Leeds College of Music is a great place to host an event, the venue looks smart and modern and the events team were brilliant from start to finish. They were incredibly helpful and quick to respond during the planning stages and on the day the team went out of their way to accommodate us. As a result, the event ran smoothly and our conference was a huge success."
Field Consulting

"We used Leeds College of Music as the venue for our inaugural Creative Cities Convention, a brand new platform for producers and broadcasters working in the digital media industry outside London. It was important for us to make a good impression in our first year and the venue was perfect. The team bent over backwards to accommodate our needs and the auditorium was terrifically atmospheric, lighting and set design requirements were executed excellently and all the facilities including the Rooftop Bar and meeting areas were right outside, which enabled ease of networking and suited us really well. We used a great jazz duo provided by the conservatoire and the catering, audiovisual and technical aspects were all great too. We had some very high profile speakers and everyone was impressed. Our conference will travel to a different city each year but I would love to use this venue again, given the chance."
Creative Cities Convention

 “We cannot fault the service provided by the events team at the LCoM who were wonderfully professional and efficient both during the planning stages and the delivery of our event. The venue provided the perfect setting for our awards ceremony and workshops and we very much hope to host our event at the LCoM again in future.”
The Diana Award

“Fantastic support from the LCoM events team – it's the finishing touches that make such a difference on the day! Thank you so much for facilitating a smooth running meeting. We will be back again I'm sure!”
St James's Institute of Oncology
