Lakeside Conference Centre

York Biotech Campus is home to Lakeside Conference Centre, a flexible and unique events space set in an environment that encourages innovation and blue-sky thinking. Located at the heart of the campus, it offers flexible meeting rooms and a 250 seat auditorium with floor to ceiling windows, flooding the space with natural daylight.

The centre also benefits from a spacious and light mezzanine area, providing a large open space that can be used for exhibitions or as a breakout area between meetings, or for smaller group discussions.

Its versatile nature means Lakeside Conference Centre can be the perfect setting for every type of event, whether it’s a major conference, an exhibition, a board meeting, a workshop or training course. Event organisers can also benefit from exclusive weekend and evening access.

“The venue offered everything we needed, not only because of the space but the friendly and accommodating team.”

“It was the exclusive access to the amenities alongside the excellent service provided by the Lakeside team which lead us to booking two more events at the venue.”

“York Biotech Campus couldn’t have provided a more suitable venue and what really made it memorable was the amount of applied science that was seen in practice.”
