etc.venues has secured the much sought-after AIM accreditation from the Meetings Industry Association (mia). Our clients have taken note of the effectiveness of our 18-point plan in these uncertain times however this accreditation now gives our 18-point plan the AIM seal of approval. 

Andrew Roberts, Group Facilities Manager, CMC markets: "Implementation of covid-secure measures at etc.venues, including implementing one way systems, were delivered appropriately as to not impede our use whilst ensuring touch points were cleaned routinely without fail, as well as assisting with regular deep cleans and fogging. Making our work areas a safe environment to be in".

etc.venues has achieved gold 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 our venue against a robust checklist of criteria.

The process includes legal compliance, accessibility and quality checks of our facilities as well as our customer service proposition and experience, ethical codes of conduct and best practice standards.

Charlotte Culley, Sales Manager, etc.venues, said: “It’s fantastic testament to the highly experienced and dedicated etc.venues team 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, the mia said: “We’re delighted that etc.venues is the latest venue to secure gold 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.”
