York Conferences

York Conferences is a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of York. All our profit is fed back into central University funds to support refurbishment, building projects and general University development. We are an experienced team of 12, with most of us based in Grimston House by the information Centre, Market Square. We also have onsite coordinators at King’s Manor and the Ron Cooke Hub. We are here to help.

We appreciate the value and prestige academic conferences bring to the University of York and the need for internal departments to be able to access space. We are keen to work with you to our mutual benefit.
