The venue consortium has become a centre of excellence for learning and development, benchmarking and sustainability for conference centres and venues.
EEF Venues managing director, David Vaughton commented: “This is all about expanding our knowledge and relationships beyond the UK, looking for new business opportunities, benchmarking our product, networking with other like-minded businesses, and tapping into the association’s excellent educational programme.
“To be part of IACC is real feather in our cap and we join some incredibly well respected and high performing businesses. We’re genuinely proud to be part of IACC’s global family of leading venues, and look forward to the substantial benefits it delivers.”
Mark Cooper, IACC’s CEO, added: “EEF Venues has demonstrated unequivocally that it is totally committed to delivering the IACC Meetings Experience and I am confident it will be a valuable member of the association. By conforming to our global quality standards, Woodland Grange has become a venue that meeting planners can confidently trust to look after their meeting.”
