Radisson Blu London Stansted Airport, Crowne Plaza London Heathrow, Melia White House, London and the De Vere Staverton Park, Daventry all successfully completed the process to accreditation.

Caroline Hill, co-founder of Compliant Venues, said: "As someone who has been involved in healthcare events for over 15 years, it has been rewarding to see how we can add tangible value to venues wishing to attract and work with the healthcare sector. We already have 30 venues at different stages of the accreditation process and have seen a fantastic response, with over 3,000 page hits to our website since our recent launch."

Richard Fine, assistant director of sales at Melia White House Hotel, added: "As a hotel looking to target groups from the pharmaceutical industry due to our close proximity to London’s medical and pharmaceutical institutions, this solution has helped us learn more about the specific needs of our potential clients. It also provides venues with the opportunity to focus on the type of business from this segment that would be most suitable for them and it offers companies the confidence to book educated and knowledgeable hotels."

Vanessa Wicks, meetings success manager at the Crowne Plaza London Heathrow, added that the accreditation would help them promote themselves to the healthcare sector. "It is also a way of educating us in the requirements and guidelines that our clients from this industry follow when making a decision about a venue."
