What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is a set of industry standards or benchmarks established by and for the meetings and events industry covering ethical business practice and customer service.

Accreditation provides clients and business operators with a guide to industry requirements to help them plan, develop, manage, improve and document their event or conference.

Accreditation also helps potential clients to identify operators who have achieved the industry standard for experience and expertise.

Accreditation makes meetings managers that are committed to professionalism and ethical business practice easily recognisable with the following logos:
