Home Royal Armouries Leeds the way for Welcome to Yorkshire Anniversary Celebrations

Welcome to Yorkshire has confirmed it will mark its 10th anniversary with a huge celebration at the very location where the organisation was first launched in 2009.

This year’s Y conference - Y19 - will be held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on Wednesday 3rd April, 10 years to the day since it was first unveiled.

A major event is planned which will be open to both Welcome to Yorkshire members and non-members.

Sir Gary Verity DL, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “2019 promises to be a huge year for Yorkshire, with even more world-class events being hosted in the county. Y19 will be a celebration of not only how much Yorkshire has achieved in the last 10 years, but it will be an opportunity to share news of even bigger things to come.”

Y19 - the UK’s largest onstage tourism show will be even more spectacular than ever before, with celebrity guests, amazing Yorkshire films, huge Yorkshire announcements, a draw for 10 top luxury prizes and lots of surprises.

Tickets are now available to be part of a very special audience at the biggest show of its kind in the UK, where attendees will get exclusive previews of Welcome to Yorkshire’s plans to continue promoting the county on a global scale, plus hearing some unique insights from celebrities, Yorkshire ambassadors and key players in the tourism world.

Y19 will be a not to be missed opportunity to find out what’s going on in Yorkshire and how you, or your business, can get involved and reap the benefits of all the fantastic events being held. There will be updates on the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire and the huge coup of Yorkshire hosting the 2019 UCI Road World Championships, plus some very big announcements … think arts … think food and drink … think sport … and so much more.

There will be two optional 45 minute historical guided city walking tours available after the event, courtesy of Blue Badge Tourist Guides and the Royal Armouries will also be offering Y19 guests an opportunity to meet some real knights in shining armour! A complimentary light lunch will be provided by Leeds City College.
