SERA will hold its conference at the hotel in November 2011 after the venue upgraded its access to meet disability standards.

Visit Scotland awarded the hotel Level 1 Access accreditation and Barceló Stirling Highland Hotel general manager Stewart Bond said: "For SERA, as well as other clients, this upgrade is of great benefit and it is terrific to be working with SERA for the next few years."

The two-day conference has previously been held at venues including the Royal George Hotel in Perth.

University of Stirling senior research fellow Dr Ralph Catts, a SERA representative, said: "We agreed to relocate our conference to this venue because its refurbishment brought it up to the standard we require for our members as some need unassisted access."
