Welcome to LHVA

Your Gateway to Extraordinary Stays and Exceptional Events in Leeds

The Leeds Hotels and Venues Association (LHVA) is a membership-led, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting members with knowledge and valuable information to assist their businesses, whilst raising the profile of Leeds to attract business and leisure tourism to the city.

With 30+ members across the city centre and the wider Leeds area, the Association acts on behalf of the interest of its members with presentations from industry experts, quarterly data intelligence reporting, and regular updates from key city stakeholders.


The LHVA Awards is the premier event in the Leeds Hotels and Venues Association calendar. It is when our members, sponsors, supporters and partners come together to celebrate individuals that make the city’s hospitality scene so extraordinary.

This glittering evening of celebration is our opportunity to recongise the fantastic work of our hospitality colleagues. It is the night when we say a huge thank you to those unsung heroes, top teams, and rising stars.

A hugely popular event, the LHVA Awards provide the chance for a big party in recognition of the fantastic contribution that hospitality, conferencing and events make to the city’s economy.

We’re always on the lookout for sponsors too, so please get in touch if you would like to offer your support: info@lhva.co.uk.
