Apr 15, 2013 | News

CEME Conference Centre has just been awarded the highly prestigious ‘Accredited in Meetings’ (AIM) Gold Standard by the Meetings Industry Association. Located in East London, CEME is one of only 15 venues across the United Kingdom that has achieved the highest grade, and is the first in East London and Essex.

CEME is an ultra-modern events and conference venue ideally located for London and Essex with close proximity to The City and Canary Wharf. The Conference Centre incorporates a state-of-the-art 120-seat auditorium, The POD, together with 19 meeting rooms, exhibition space and outdoor facilities. The venue is located on an 18 acre Business, Education and Research Campus and supports the charitable objectives of the Centre in the regeneration of the Thames Gateway.

Eamonn Cole, Conference Centre Director, commented: “We have a wonderfully modern building with amazing space, first class facilities and we know the importance of quality and value to event buyers in choosing venues in the current climate. It is fantastic to be awarded this prestigious accreditation, especially as we have only been with the MIA for one year. Being the first AIM Gold venue in Essex and East London is also a great privilege that adds substantial value to our clients and, together with us also being a World Host venue, ensures delivery of the highest levels of customer service.”

Accredited in Meetings (AIM) is the Meetings Industry Association’s national quality standard for venues and suppliers in the meetings, conference and events industry. At Gold level, users can expect first class facilities with the very highest levels of service, exceptional catering using the highest quality ingredients, highly proficient staff and a price reflective of the quality of the venue and service delivered.

Jane Longhurst, Chief Executive of the MIA, said: “A venue applying for Gold Accreditation is assessed across a very wide range of facilities and services. To pass at this high level requires the very highest standards and staff of the highest quality. I am delighted that this superb conference facility has made the grade.”
