KingsGate Conference Centre achieves iconic industry quality assurance status

May 23, 2022

KingsGate Conference Centre has secured the much sought-after AIM accreditation from the Meetings Industry Association (mia).

The KingsGate Conference Centre in Parnwell has achieved entry status from the UK’s nationally recognised standard for service providers in the meetings, conferences and events industry, after a panel of independent industry assessors scrutinised the venue against a robust checklist of criteria. The process includes legal compliance, accessibility and quality checks of its facilities as well as its customer service proposition and experience, ethical codes of conduct and best practice standards.

Nige De Soyza, Business Development Manager at KingsGate Conference Centre, said: “It’s a fantastic testament to the highly experienced and dedicated team at KingsGate that we have secured national AIM accreditation as it provides buyers a benchmark of the highest standard. We appreciate that it can sometimes be overwhelming as there are so many things to consider when planning an event from location to catering, photography, speakers, delegates and marketing; however, with our AIM accreditation, buyers can immediately feel confident they are working with dedicated and experienced professionals.”

Jane Longhurst, Chief Executive at the mia, said: “We’re delighted that KingsGate Conference Centre is the latest venue to secure entry AIM accreditation. The iconic status acts as a guarantee to buyers that they’re choosing a service provider that cares about best practice and actively strives to meet and exceed your expectations. With so many dedicated conference centres and hotels, sporting and academic venues to choose from nationwide, it offers a smart method to quality control your selections that could ultimately save you time, anxiety and reputational risk later down the line.”
