Meetings - Conferences - Weddings - Events
St Martins House Conference Centre has joined the Meetings Industry Association (mia) – one of the fastest growing associations in the conference, meetings and events sector. 
Nigel Jobson, Business Director of St Martins House Conference Centre comments: “Joining the mia will bring many benefits to St Martins House Conference Centre including useful networking opportunities and a valuable industry benchmarking tool. The meeting and events sector is responsible for thousands of jobs and I think it is incredibly important to work together as an industry, in order to continually improve the standards of the service we are offering.” 
As part of its membership, St Martins House Conference Centre has secured the mia’s highly acclaimed AIM accreditation. AIM is the UK’s nationally recognised standard for venues and service providers in the meetings, conferences and events industry and has 50 strict criteria that venues must meet to achieve accreditation. 
Jane Longhurst, mia chief executive, says: “We’re delighted to welcome St Martins House Conference Centre as our latest member. Securing AIM accreditation acts as a guarantee to buyers that when they choose St Martins House Conference Centre they’re choosing a venue that cares about best practice and actively strives to meet and exceed their 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 their selections that could ultimately save them time, anxiety and reputational risk later down the line.” 
The mia facilitates meetings, debates and gatherings with some of the brightest minds in the industry to solve business problems, to encourage learning and to create valuable networking opportunities.
