About the venue
ODI Leeds is located on the 3rd floor on Munro House. We are perfectly placed for transport links being opposite the bus station and just a 15 mins walk from the train station. The building has wheelchair access from street-level to the lobby, and then lift access to all floors, with disabled toilets on the 2nd and 3rd floors. We have a code of conduct for our events to help ensure that everyone who attends enjoys themselves and feels safe.
We are delighted that OpenDataSoft are sponsoring the Showcase event during Leeds Digital Festival 2017. A former ODINE and ODI startup, OpenDataSoft are creating a platform to make open data easier to use and access.
We are also delighted that IBM are sponsoring the whole week for Leeds Digital Festival 2017, allowing us to host and organise some amazing digital data events.
