The recently launched accreditation scheme assesses venues on four ‘areas of excellence" that enable planners to identify what standard of venue they are dealing with.

The Venue Standard is reassessed every two years and provides a star rating between one and five. It also identifies areas for improvement and a benchmark against other venues in the same sector. 

Jo Mobsby-Green, Conference and Events Manager at Leicester Conferences said: "The Venue Standard has not only rewarded us with an internationally recognised four-star rating but it has also highlighted areas in which we can look to improve ourselves as a venue.

"Central to what we offer is our fantastic food, created by our award-winning executive head chef. Great food is an important part of any event, and ours is hard to beat. Going forward The Venue Standard rating will undoubtedly help us to market ourselves as a venue of excellence but also put us in a stronger position when we are talking to meeting planners, buyers and organisers."

Gary Swarbrooke from The Venue Standard said: "Congratulations to Leicester Conferences on achieving a  four-star rating. Achieving this level is a real accolade and it certainly highlights the fantastic quality of both the product and service offered by Leicester Conferences."
