Hotels that "Extra Something"
Provides Meeting Planners with an Up-front Statement of Quality
|(St. Louis, MO - November 1, 2006) - For 25 years, experienced meeting
planners have considered the IACC logo to be a kind of seal of approval,
a quality mark that distinguishes an IACC-approved conference center that
has met a stringent set of Universal Criteria from all other meeting venues.
When IACC's Global Internet Committee convened in San Francisco last summer to review proposed upgrades to their popular website, the concept of a Seal of Approval on each property's individual homepage was a key item of discussion. Steve Smith, IACC Director of Quality Services, applauded the concept as providing the property with that 'extra something that continues to help an IACC property stand out as an exceptional conference center.' Smith added, "It provides the meeting planner with an up-front statement that the property is approved by IACC."
John Worthington of the Conference Center at Water's Edge in Beverly, Massachusetts, agrees. As the first IACC member property to incorporate the IACC- Seal of Approval on the homepage of their website, Worthington observed, "The IACC Seal of Approval" is basically a promise to our customers that we have met all the criteria and that we are committed to providing an outstanding environment for productive and successful meetings."
Meeting Planner Pamela Wynne of Educational Testing Service in Princteon,
NJ also speaks highly of the seal. "The IACC Seal is a clear indication
that the property understands the critical nature of a meeting," Wynne
commented, "as soon as I know the property is an IACC-approved venue, they
go to the top of my list".
