The Yorkshire Agricultural Society’s new state-of-the-art event centre in Harrogate has won the Project of the Year and also the commercial property award, announced at the 2017 RICS Awards ceremony held at the Centenary Pavilion at Leeds Football Club.
Nigel Billingsley, Partner in the Leeds office said “The Yorkshire Event Centre is now not just the biggest event space available in Yorkshire but also one of the most modern, inspiring and dynamic event space in the region”.
“The Yorkshire Agricultural Society has shown what can be achievable with vision and good collaboration”.
Since opening in June last year, it has already attracted several new events to the region from more established venues in Birmingham and London.
The project was delivered on time and budget and used local materials and workmanship. Any profits generated from the Yorkshire Event Centre go towards funding the work of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society.
