Pilot Venues Complete Accreditation Process for Healthcare Meeting Venue Initiative16/07/2012 Compliant Venues
Four venues: Radisson Blu London Stansted Airport, Crowne Plaza London Heathrow, Melia White House, London and the De Vere Staverton Park, Daventry have all successfully completed the process to accreditation.
Caroline Hill of Compliant Venues commented, “As someone who has been involved in healthcare events for over 15 years, it has been rewarding to see how we can add tangible value to venues wishing to attract and work with the healthcare sector. “We already have 30 venues at different stages of the accreditation process and have seen a fantastic response with over 3,000 page hits to our website since our recent launch.
Richard Fine of Melia White House Hotel commented “As a hotel looking to target groups from the pharmaceutical industry due to our close proximity to London’s medical and pharmaceutical institutions, this solution has helped us learn more about the specific needs of our potential clients. It also provides venues with the opportunity to focus on the type of business from this segment that would be most suitable for them and it offers companies the confidence to book educated and knowledgeable hotels"
Katie Hutchins, Healthcare Champion for Radisson Blu in the UK felt “It’s fantastic that an initiative has finally been created to help bridge the gap between the healthcare/life science sector and the hospitality industry. Knowing what the potential challenges are around compliance with industry codes is a huge benefit when trying to penetrate this complex industry”.
Faith Thomas of DeVere Venues quoted "It's been a pleasure to be part of the working group that has helped move Compliant Venues from concept to reality, and I believe that CV offers a solution that will benefit not only healthcare professionals, but also third party corporate agencies, and hotel and conference venues alike."
Vanessa Wicks, Meetings Success Manager at the Crowne Plaza London Heathrow explained “to have an accreditation which highlights us as a viable meeting and conference venue for the healthcare sector is of great value, not only as a way of promoting ourselves to this specific industry sector but also as a way of educating us in the requirements and guidelines that our clients from this industry follow when making a decision about a venue”
A venue booking and event management agency training day is planned for Tuesday 31st July at the Radisson Blu Stansted. Please contact Caroline Hill on t: +44 (0) 7769 534234 or e: email@example.com for more information.
An on-line venue directory will be available from September to support the visibility of accredited venues.
