Lane End Conference Centre has confirmed its acceptance into the prestigious International Association of Conference Centres (IACC).
IACC is the sole global professional association that represents small-to-medium-sized venues focused on meetings, training and conferences. Lane End now joins more than 360 venues in 21 different countries that aspire to achieve the very best standards and an exceptional meetings experience.
“I am delighted that Lane End Conference Centre has demonstrated its commitment to delivering the IACC Meetings Experience,” comments Mark Cooper, IACC’s CEO. “By them conforming to our global quality standards, we have established that they will provide meeting planners and event organisers with the confidence and trust required, and that they have chosen a quality venue and committed team to look after their meetings, conference or event.”
Lane End is currently in the middle of a busy development period with its Pavilion building currently experiencing redevelopment along with the bedrooms in the Wycombe Court building. The full refurbishments, including a new reception, are due to complete in the summer of 2016.
“It is a real honour for Lane End to now be recognised and included in IACC’s membership,” comments Heni Fourie, Director of Sales & Marketing at Lane End Conference Centre. “We aim to achieve excellence on a day-to-day basis be it a basic meeting or a much larger conference. IACC has recognised that we comply with their quality standards and to be part of this global association is further good news following our record end of year figures. Our compliance with this standard, as well as the exciting developments with our venue, puts us in a strong position as 2016 approaches.”
Key benefits of an IACC membership include marketing & business growth opportunities; learning & networking at annual and regional conferences and meetings; benchmarking vis-à-vis colleagues and industry standards; the immensely popular, global Copper Skillet Culinary Competition celebrating the artistry of IACC-member chefs from around the world; and the IACC Code of Sustainability, supporting green meeting environments, initiatives and best practices internationally. Lane End Conference Centre offers a unique modular design with five distinct and completely self-contained conference buildings – each offering bedrooms, meeting facilities, bar, lounge and dining room – available for exclusive use.
