The Venue Standard is reassessed every two years to ensure confidence of accuracy amongst buyers. As well as providing a star rating between one and five, The Venue Standard also identifies areas for improvement, whilst offering a chance to benchmark against other venues in the same sector.
The recently launched accreditation scheme is designed to assess venues on four key areas of excellence that enable organisers and planners to identify what standard of venue they are dealing with.
“Congratulations to Leicester Conferences on achieving a 4 Star rating,” comments Gary Swarbrooke, from The Venue Standard. “Achieving this level is a real accolade and it certainly highlights the fantastic quality of both the product and service offered by Leicester Conferences.”
Jo Mobsby-Green, Conference and Events Manager at Leicester Conferences said: “The Venue Standard has not only rewarded us with an internationally recognised 4 Star rating but it has also highlighted areas in which we can look to improve ourselves as a venue. Central to what we offer is our fantastic food, created by our award-winning Executive Head Chef. Great food is an important part of any event, and ours is hard to beat. Going forward The Venue Standard rating will undoubtedly help us to market ourselves as a venue of excellence but also put us in a stronger position when we are talking to meeting planners, buyers and organisers.”
The Venue Standard is committed to reviewing the needs of the industry and those buying services from venues both in the present and in the future. The assessment of venues is based around four headings; administration, service delivery, quality of product and customer feedback.
