The Society UK committee are delighted to welcome you to our 2016 annual meeting this coming September. Leeds has a population of approximately 700000 and is the most rapidly growing city in the United Kingdom. Once famous for its heavy industry, it is now a Centre for a wide range of light industries and is an international hub for IT and electronic business activities. Its shopping centre is compact and has not only the ‘big name’ stores, but a wide range of specialist interest outlets – high fashion and shoes especially. There is a wide range of restaurants. The University, established 1903, is ranked highly in World ratings for both the sciences and the arts. The Medical School, established in the early 19th century, has been at the centre of innovation, particularly in diabetes, renal medicine, and open heart surgery.
The Mercure Parkway is a cosy hotel outside the City-Centre but with good coach connection downtown every 20 minutes.
The Hotel is equipped for both business meetings, conferences and pleasure. There is free WiFi in the hotel and a parking area outside.
The hotel has restaurant, bar and a spa area with a pool.
For the conference we have a limited contingent of rooms available.
