Leeds United’s Conference & Events facilities have also recently received a major seal of approval. Elland Road stadium became only the second venue in the city to secure the prestigious AIM entry level accreditation.
The Meetings Industry Association, which granted Elland Road the accreditation, is the number one resource and trade organization for the industry.
The accreditation, for which Leeds United had to meet a range of criteria ranging from health and safety and trade descriptions, through to facilities offered, transparency and security, is a viewed as a great accolade for the club’s ever expanding Conference & Events business.
Leeds United Sales Manager Helen Briden said: "As Leeds United's Elland Road Stadium is one of the country's leading venues; our partnership with MIA and our AIM accreditation creates the perfect networking forum to benchmark ourselves in this ever changing industry.”
“We are confident our association will ensure we offer an ongoing high degree of excellence to our clients with Best Business Practice our continued goal.”
We are also delighted to announce that Leeds United are winners of the Director’s Choice Dining Room Award, League 1, presented recently at the official Football Hospitality Awards 2008.
Sourcing goods locally is an important part of Leeds United’s food policy. Norbert Pichler, Leeds United’s Catering Director said: “While dry goods and seasonings come through national suppliers, all our fresh produce, meats and poultry are sourced locally and supplied by local producers wherever possible.
“Particularly, because so many of our fans are local, and the club itself has such longstanding community connections. Our philosophy is to support local businesses whenever we can and establish mutually profitable partnerships.”
