Located in the centre of one of England’s hidden gems, the Harrogate Convention Centre welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors a year. Harrogate sits on the outskirts of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, but is conveniently less than an hour to York and Leeds. There must be something in the water in this spa town as it has been regularly voted the happiest place to live in the UK. It comes as no surprise that Harrogate is the number one location for delegates’ choosing to return according to VisitBritain's research.
The Centre itself boasts a 2,000-seat conference auditorium and more than 13,000 sq metres of exhibition space. Its facilities also include the majestic Royal Hall which combines Edwardian charm and modern facilities, after an £8 million restoration in 2008. With on-site hotels including the Crowne Plaza and Premier Inn offering 320 rooms, there is ample opportunity to experience the famed Yorkshire hospitality.
