International Medieval Congress The University of Leeds is set to host the International Medieval Congress, the largest academic conference of its kind in Europe, at the end of the month.
 
The University of Leeds’ conference and events team, MeetInLeeds, is preparing to host 2,000 delegates from around the world for the congress, which runs from 30 June to 4 July, with more than half of them staying on the main campus in University accommodation.
 
“This has been three years in the planning as it is the largest conference we have hosted on the campus,” says MeetInLeeds Event Manager, Anthony Lowe.

“It’s been great working with all the different departments to create a medieval campus, with special exhibitions in the university art gallery, library and academic meeting rooms, as well as themed menus and medieval street food. The University Union will be selling a specially-brewed Congress ale.
 
“We’ll be serving around 3,000 meals a day with the refectory turned into a dining room. And there’ll also be fine dining available within University House so that delegates and University staff have the opportunity to host special meals and events throughout the congress,” he added.
 
Many of the delegates attending the conference will stay at the recently-opened Storm Jameson Court.
