Rugby Enthusiasts Converge on Leeds Marriott Hotel for Networking Event

LEEDS, ENGLAND -- (Marketwired) -- Sharing in the global passion of rugby, a central Leeds hotel was the host venue for the recent Rugby Business Network Leeds which brought together rugby players, sporting legends and dedicated supporters from across the region to share their enthusiasm.

An exciting networking opportunity between the sporting world and regional business people, the 10 December 2014 event, held at the Leeds Marriott Hotel, featured England Rugby Union Head Coach Stuart Lancaster as the keynote speaker. Drawing a robust crowd to the Leeds city centre hotel's stylish event space, Lancaster is known for leading England to two second place finishes in the 2012 and 2013 RBS 6 Nations and for also defeating the world champion New Zealand team by a record score of 38-21 during the 2012 season. During the evening, he spoke of his experiences surrounding cultural and leadership strategies within professional sports and how the same strategies can be applied to business.

As a global RBN sponsor, Marriott hosts similar events around the world in support of the not-for-profit organisation's effort to connect with senior business people who share a passion for rugby in the hopes they can justify a sustained commitment to the sport.

While supporting the rugby community, the meetings also provide an opportunity for the hotel to showcase the many attributes of the Leeds accommodation in hosting business and social events. Boasting 702 square meters of flexible event space complemented by inspirational menus and customized catering as well as the services of professional event managers, the hotel is dedicated to ensuring every event is destined for success.

Known for its legendary service and dynamic spaces, the Leeds Marriott Hotel is not only one of the area's top business hotels but those seeking accommodation in Leeds quickly discover a well-rounded offering of amenities that include everything from thoughtfully-designed guest rooms with luxurious bedding ensembles to tantalizing steakhouse dining at the Midtown Grill Restaurant so they can balance their work and life for a relaxed, yet productive stay.
