The Grand Brighton celebrates after maintaining AIM Gold accreditation
Luxury seafront hotel, The Grand Brighton, has retained its AIM Gold accreditation, the highest standard awarded by the Meetings Industry Association (mia), in recognition of its excellent meetings and events facilities.
After first achieving AIM Gold in 2011, the newly independent hotel was reassessed as part of a compulsory procedure undertaken by the mia every three years, to ensure that venues continue to operate at the high standards set by AIM.
AIM Gold is only awarded to exceptional venues or suppliers who have met, or exceeded, a strict set of criteria, making The Grand Brighton one of only 30 hotels to hold the top accolade and the only conference venue in Brighton to have achieved this.
With 13 recently refurbished meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 900 delegates, as well as award-winning catering, state of the art AV technology and luxury bedrooms, The Grand Brighton is an ideal location for both large scale exclusive events, as well as smaller more intimate meetings.
Michael Cloke, Director of Sales at The Grand Brighton, comments: “We are absolutely delighted to have retained our AIM Gold accreditation, which shows that we operate at an incredibly high standard in all areas, from customer service, to catering, hospitality, operation and compliance. The fact that we have retained Gold since becoming an independent hotel is extremely rewarding and demonstrates to both new and existing customers that we are going from strength to strength in this new era for The Grand.”
Nick Milne, Chair of the AIM Development Group (ADG), says: “The promotion of continual improvement and development is at the heart of AIM’s message, which is the reason why venues are re-assessed every three years. As the highest level of accreditation, AIM Gold is a huge feat as it is difficult to achieve and equally hard to maintain, so it is a wonderful accomplishment for The Grand to have been awarded Gold once again, and on behalf of the ADG we offer huge congratulations.”
The Grand Brighton is an iconic and luxury hotel situated on Brighton’s famous seafront. Designed and built in 1864, the historic hotel is only a 10 minute walk from Brighton rail station, with services running into London Victoria in 55 minutes and Gatwick Airport in just 30 minutes.
