The Royal Cambridge Hotel has secured the much sought-after AIM accreditation from the Meetings Industry Association (MIA).

After a panel of independent industry assessors scrutinised the hotel against a robust checklist of criteria, The Royal Cambridge Hotel achieved entry status from the UK’s nationally recognised standard for service providers in the meetings, conferences and events industry.

The process includes legal compliance, accessibility and quality checks of facilities as well as its customer service proposition and experience, ethical codes of conduct and best practice standards.

Stewart Rushton, General Manager at The Royal Cambridge Hotel, said: “I’m delighted that The Royal Cambridge Hotel has received accreditation from the MIA. We pride ourselves on providing great service to whoever visits our hotel, and that obviously includes business professionals wanting to conduct meetings and events.”

Consisting of five fully-equipped conference rooms, The Royal Cambridge Hotel has made significant improvement in recent years to meet the ever-increasing demands of business customers.

Stewart added: “There has been much work and progress made at our hotel in the recent years and one area of focus has been our meetings offering, so to be recognised as an MIA approved venue is credit to the improvements we’ve made.

“Businesses have so many things to consider when planning an external event, which can be overwhelming. We have a dedicated team who take every measure to ensure their event runs as smoothly as possible and ensure their need is met to the nth degree.”

Jane Longhurst, Chief Executive for the MIA said: “We’re delighted that The Royal Cambridge Hotel is the latest venue to secure AIM accreditation. The iconic status acts as a guarantee to buyers that they’re choosing a service provider that cares about best practice and actively strives to meet and exceed your expectations.

“With so many dedicated conference centres and hotels, sporting and academic venues to choose from nationwide, it offers a smart method to quality control your selections that could ultimately save you time, anxiety and reputational risk later down the line.”

The Royal Cambridge Hotel is located on Trumpington Street, next door to the Fitzwilliam Museum and can cater for all events, large or small. For more information, visit
