The Sheffield Convention Bureau is a service offered to event organisers from Marketing Sheffield.  

We're dedicated to making life as easy as possible for you and that extends to assisting you with your venue search, accommodation booking, travel and most importantly local impartial advice.  What's more it's all free and without obligation.  

Submitting an enquiry - just brief us on your event, and we will spring rapidly into action, contacting suitable venues on your behalf and obtaining all availability and rate information.  Just 48hours later we will present you with a comprehensive report for your consideration.  It's the swift, stress free way to pin point your perfect venue.  You can submit your enquiry online

Free accommodation service - Whether you are looking to block book for a group of delegates or refer individuals to a central booking service our accommodation experts are on hand to help.  Either way we can secure bedrooms, negotiate the best rateson your behalf and provide a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets.  

Our online booking system includes a link to add to your own event website or to send out with joining instructions.  A unique booking code also ensures that only your delegates can access your event information.   Your dedicated page can be branded with your logo and details of your event, along with instructions foryour delegates on how to book their rooms and payment details.  Each hotel will be listed with all amenities, grading, location in relation to the main conference venue and synopsis detailed, so your delegates can make a personal choice.  

The system will allow organisers or delegates to make group bookings, individual bookings, amendments, all up to a date (a cut-off point) prior to your event taking place.   Once that point is reached, our accommodation team will take over and send rooming lists, make changes and late bookings on your behalf.
