Prepare Your Bid Document

Preparing the Bid Document

Whether your organisation has a worldwide or national membership, it is likely that you will need to prepare a bid document to support your case for bringing the event to York.

This document should present the benefits of York as a conference destination, and include a background on the city and its affiliations, venue options, travel details, leisure options, and be supported by relevant photographs that show the city at its very best. The Conference team at Visit York can support you in the preparation of this vital documentation.
