Barbican achieves AIM Gold for third time

9 Jan 20202m read

The Meetings Industry Association (MIA) has announced that it has awarded AIM Gold accreditation to the Barbican in London.

It is the third time the international arts and conference centre has received the mia’s highest ranking through the AIM accreditation scheme.

All venues and suppliers seeking AIM accreditation are audited against 50-point criteria. This criteria includes the quality of facilities, accessibility, legal compliance, customer service and best practice standards.

Assessors for the mia stated that ‘good practice was observed and evidenced’ in all areas of assessment of the Barbican.

The assessors also observed that extensive work had been undertaken over the past three years to improve areas including the building’s safety, acoustics, technology, lighting and furnishings.

Jane Longhurst, chief executive, mia, said: “I would like to congratulate the Barbican for consistently performing so highly. It is an incredible achievement to gain AIM Gold, but to meet and exceed the criteria for it again is real testament to the venue’s ability to maintain high standards and continually improve the offering for its clients.

Longhurst added that the AIM Gold Accreditation is a “significant achievement as venues are thoroughly assessed and must meet strict criteria. Therefore, those choosing AIM Gold accredited venues can be assured of quality.”

Lee Dobson, head of business events management, Barbican, said: “The team has worked incredibly hard to achieve AIM Gold for the third time and I am incredibly proud of their efforts.

Dobson concludes that the award demonstrates “everyone’s ability and desire to come together, focus on centre-wide goals and deliver both excellence and the highest levels of service to our clients.”
