Yorkshire Business Tourism Awards 2009- The Winners

Leeds United's Conference and Events team were honoured this week when they were named the Team of the Year at the Yorkshire Business Tourism Awards for 2009.

The team was honoured at a ceremony in Leeds, with Leeds United pipping the Royal Armouries International Conference Team, Ponds Forge ISC, Conference Leeds and The Great Victoria Hotel to the award.

The judges said: "Outstanding events need an outstanding team behind them and this award seeks to recognise both those teams and their achievements.

"The team at Leeds United has been praised for being both efficient and professional and for its excellent communication skills, which led to the venue winning 100 new conference accounts last year."

Conference & Events Manager Helen Briden said: "This a tremendous achievement for Leeds United. As a relatively new conference and events team our commitment and dedication over the last 19 months has been nothing short of remarkable.

"Despite many challenges, we have remained calm and focused and have continually delivered first class standards.

"Our ability to go above and beyond the call of duty ensures we always exceed our client's expectations."

The club was also shortlisted for the Venue of the Year Award.
