Launched in April 2017 by Leeds BID, the festival combines an international programme of speakers and performers with the unshakable creative spirit of one of the North’s most vibrant cities. Our mission is to grow LIF into the UK’s largest platform for global thinkers, innovators and pioneers to discuss the world of today and our future.
