York Conferences, University of York

York Conferences is a subsidiary company of the University of York. This means that all our profits go back to the University, enabling us to support improved education, learning practices and research. York Conferences has a strong focus on providing eco-friendly and socially responsible services that work in harmony alongside our environment. This commitment has led us to a programme of sustainable development, whereby we use resources such as fuel and water efficiently, monitor the impact of any construction work, and work closely with our local community to ensure we add value where we can.

Over the past forty years, our team has expanded from a single university conference officer to a strong group of event managers and coordinators. We’ve grown alongside the university, and now host hundreds of exhibitions and conferences each year – in addition to offering self-catered and bed and breakfast accommodation to conference guests and holidaymakers.

Many prestigious organisations have benefited from the use of York’s best conference venues, including the 16th century King’s Manor and the £26 million Piazza Building. 

York Conferences don’t only manage the venues – we can assist you with every stage of the planning process, including bidding for events. We’ve teamed up with local event management company Mosaic Events to provide additional services to our clients, including electronic event registration for delegates, social media integration and income generation services.

Thank you so much for the way King's Manor looked after us. The ambiance of the room, the layout of the tables, the display media, the catering were exactly what we needed and enabled us to have a really stimulating discussion.

I cannot praise staff highly enough, every single request was met with 'yes we can do that for you'. We had many site meetings and were made most welcome. The technician even created a PowerPoint slide for me on the day! I wouldn't change a thing.


All the team were fantastic, from catering teams, to tech support, to the porters. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and last minute, unexpected requests were dealt with. Planning of the event was helped by patient, helpful account managers! Many delegates have said how great the venue staff were.
