Robinson College, one of Cambridge’s most forward-thinking academic institutions, has achieved the prestigious AIM Gold accreditation, for excellence in its meetings and events division.

This prestigious award comes at the culmination of a lengthy and detailed assessment process which drilled-down into the finest minutiae of what makes Robinson College an outstanding space, and why it should be at the top of event organisers’ and agents’ preferred venue list.

The assessment was all-encompassing, taking into account: business planning, service delivery, u

nderstanding customers’ needs and continuous improvement amongst many other criteria. In particular, the assessors singled out the College’s commitment to continuous improvement from low carbon menus to group check-in arrangements; additionally the longevity of staff tenure and their high-levels of experience were noted.

Commenting on the achievement, Nick Milne, conference and catering manager at Robinson College said: “This is an amazing result, marking yet another milestone for us. As a college we are committed to investing in our facilities to make sure that we are always improving and keeping up to date with the needs of residents, stakeholders and clients. This accreditation reinforces this approach to our business. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the staff across the College who work tirelessly day in and day out to offer our students, faculty and corporate guests the standards they expect, and for their sustained passion, in helping to build Robinson’s reputation as one of Cambridge’s most dynamic academic destinations.”

Gary Payne, chair of the AIM Development Group added: “This is a well-deserved and fantastic achievement for Robinson College, and a welcome addition to the growing list of AIM gold venues.”

The AIM Gold accreditation comes hot on the heels of another gold standard win for Robinson College from the Green Impact Awards, recognising academic institutions  which adapt their systems and procedures to provide a more sustainable service.
