IACC Welcomes First Certified Conference Center in China

Chateauform City Chuanshan Academy - Beijing - China

The International Association of Conference Centres (IACC) announced yesterday that it has accepted into its membership the first IACC-certified conference venue in China: Châteauform' City Chuanshan Academy, located in the center of Beijing.

Referred to as "a home of Mandarins; an authentic 'Siheyuan' Chinese traditional house," the venue -- owned by European conference center operator Châteauform' -- is housed inside a 13th-century building that includes a traditional Chinese courtyard, an auditorium, a boardroom, two plenary meeting rooms, an informal meeting room, and five breakout rooms.

"We are delighted to welcome our first member in China and to expand our membership in Asia," said IACC CEO Mark Cooper. "IACC's approach of certifying and representing the highest-quality small to medium-size conference and meeting venues is unique and we hope to expand further in the region in the coming months. I am sure that the unique delegate packaging that Châteauform' is known for in Europe will be well received in Beijing by both international and domestic meeting planners wanting to run high-quality, distraction-free events."

Added Philippe Roye, managing director of Châteauform' China, "As in all Châteauform' City venues, this is a haven of peace, dedicated to business meetings, training, study days, business breakfasts, press conferences and product exhibitions. Clients will be welcomed by a host couple in a 'feel at home' atmosphere, and meeting packages are absolutely all-inclusive so there are no hidden extras. We would be pleased to welcome delegates at home in the Chuanshan Academy."
