Awards & accreditations

Award-winning venues and industry accreditations

If you’re not innovating, you’re not moving forward

That's why we take awards, accreditations and affiliations seriously. Doing so means we have to continually and consistently improve our offer.

And if we're doing that, it means a better experience for you.


We're multiple time winners of the M&IT Meetings & Incentive Travel award for Best Academic Venue.

We've also won a range of awards from both industry and local bodies; just take a look.
