Lime Venue Portfolio (LVP), the UK’s largest collection of unusual, sporting and cultural venues, has attained the Accredited In Meetings (AIM) hallmark of excellence at an additional 14 of its venues.
Joining more than 500 of the UK’s leading AIM venues, LVP’s accredited destinations, including Edinburgh Zoo, Kia Oval, Edgbaston Stadium and Leicester City FC, have all met a rigorous set of agreed standards and a strict code of practice. Each team has demonstrated excellence in terms of legal compliance, ethical business operations, capability, quality of the facilities and overall fitness of purpose.
AIM is the UK’s only nationally recognised quality standard for meetings venues and suppliers to the industry. These 14 venues further strengthen LVP’s variety and first class services for meetings and events, reflecting their consistent, open, decent and ethical values and join Lime Venue Portfolio’ s other AIM accredited venues such as Twickenham, Aintree and Kents Hill Park.
Tracey Astles, Head of Conference and Events Development at LVP, says: “Achieving AIM accreditation at these 14 venues is a proud moment for us. It’s a strong message to deliver to our customers and, supports our objective of offering an industry leading meetings and events product.”
Jo Austin, Sales Director at LVP adds: “We’re recognised as a collection of unusual and unique venues, and the AIM accreditation means we are providing everything that our customers are looking for and it’s all supported through our strong client partnerships. The accreditation really underpins our meetings and events service delivery and to be associated with AIM is a testament to our hard-working teams’ professionalism and quality of our venues.”
Jenny Sheehan, Communications Manager, AIM says: “We’re delighted to present 14 of LVP’s venues with the AIM accreditation. This is a celebration of LVP’s best practice which guarantees excellence within the meetings and events offering. Corporates now have a greater understanding of the scheme’s importance and, LVP is playing a big part in leading the way for high-standards and customer care, from event enquiry to completion.”
