Spring Conference News 2024

20 Mar 2024

As Sheffield’s Heart of the City Project (that’s £470 million of redevelopment across the city centre) is transforming the city, several new venues are set to open their doors imminently.

Europe’s largest purpose-built food hall is near completion: Cambridge Street Collective is set to be Sheffield’s newest food destination and social hub, complete with 24+ kitchens, rooftop bars, a cookery school and much more, over 3 levels!

This amazing space is a game changer for networking events for large numbers in the heart of the city and will be run by foodie entrepreneurs, the Blend Family. Independent Sheffield food and drink companies will be trading on-site along with local pop-up chefs and vendors.

The stunning Radisson Blu hotel is taking shape with an enviable location overlooking the Peace Gardens (think magnificent architecture, open spaces and glorious fountains).

Opening on Monday 10 June, it’s restored the charming Victorian architecture of the original building and, as well as events space, it will introduce a stunning bar with what will soon be one of the must-use terrace views in Sheffield- oh and 154 gorgeous bedrooms.

Meanwhile leaf HOSPITALITY is working on the DoubleTree by Hilton Sheffield City hotel development which is located at Bramall Lane football stadium and is expected to welcome guests from late Summer 2024. The 155-room hotel will include a penthouse suite, a fitness centre, and events space for up to 300 guests.

With many more of these hospitality and events spaces as part of Sheffield’s developments, our cultural and foodie credentials make us a real delegate crowd pleaser.

We recently retained our ‘real ale capital of the world’ title with 300 different real ales on sale in the city every day (zero alcohol options also available) which makes it a city that should be on your shortlist for 2024 and beyond. We’d love to enjoy more than just a local beer with you….let us show you around…
