Awards and accreditations

Leicester Conferences has been the proud recipient of a number of awards and accreditations in recent years.

Venues of Excellence

Stamford Court is a Venue of Excellence. This is an accolade given only to the top conference centres in the UK and is an indication of the high standard of the facilities and customer service provided by Leicester Conferences.

Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) Industry Awards

Our track record of success in the M&IT Awards is a source of great pride for us. These national Awards are voted for by customers, so to receive such commendations from the people we work for is special. We were voted 'Best Value for Money Conference Venue' in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, and 'Best Academic Venue' in 2012.

Leicester and Leicestershire Excellence in Tourism Awards

Following our win in 2013 for the Gold Award for 'Business Tourism' in the Leicester and Leicestershire Excellence in Tourism Awards, Leicester Conferences are also finalists in the Innovative Business Tourism category for the 2016 Tourism Awards. The judges chose Leicester Conferences back in 2013 because of our excellent account management, continuous reinvestment in our facilities, and our commitment to taking customer feedback seriously and implementing changes as a result and we cross our fingers for another win this year.

Quality in Tourism 4* campus accreditation

Quality in Tourism, the assessment body of Visit Britain, has awarded 4* campus accreditation to our accommodation in John Foster Hall and Bowder Court. This equates to a 'very good' rating, and follows our recent refurbishment of Bowder Court to improve the standard of the accommodation and accompanying kitchens.


Leicester Conferences is proud to be a member of the Meetings Industry Association (MIA). We are also accredited by AIM. Both of these accolades demonstrate our quality and professionalism in the conference and events industry.
