Now you can experience exceptional AND excellence: Leeds venues celebrate in achieving AIM Secure accreditation

Conference Leeds, the conferencing bureau for the city of Leeds, is shining a light on 24 of its venues as they achieved an assurance of excellence after securing accreditation from the Meetings Industry Association (mia).

The accreditation, AIM Secure, provides a clear indicator of a venues service levels, adherence to health and safety and its commitment to responsible practices. In an increasingly complex, dynamic and global marketplace, an accreditation increases consumer confidence and builds trust in the quality of products and services. Corporate and association buyers have become liability conscious and risk averse, so it is essential that venues offer reassurance through documentation and accreditations to give them peace of mind.

To make it easier for conference organisers to find out more about accredited venues, Conference Leeds has implemented a brand new search function to its website which allows users to search for AIM Secure venues through its venue search functionality and interactive map asset.

Kerrin MacPhie, CEO of the mia commented: “We are pleased to see more venues in Leeds have achieved AIM Secure, which is a fantastic destination to host business meetings and events. Our quality mark recognises venues’ commitment to operational excellence and sets a glowing example of the standard that we expect to see from venues not only across the United Kingdom, but the rest of the globe too.”

Claire Heap, Head of Conference Leeds said: “We are delighted that Leeds’ world class venue portfolio continues to go from strength to strength. It is fantastic to see so many venues in the city achieving AIM Secure and clearly demonstrating to conference and event organisers the quality of the facilities available in the city.

“We look forward to welcoming many exciting conferences and events over the next 12 months, and we hope that by being able to offer so many venues who are meeting the standings set out in the AIM Secure accreditation will provide that extra reassurance to anyone considering hosting their next conference or event in the city.
