|The International Association of Conference Centres (IACC) announces it has accepted into its membership the first IACC-certified conference venue in China.|
Châteauform' City Chuanshan Academy, located in the centre of Beijing, is referred to as "a home of Mandarins; an authentic 'Siheyuan' Chinese traditional house." The 13th century building includes a traditional peaceful courtyard.
IACC's CEO, Mark Cooper comments "We are delighted to welcome our first member in China and to expand our membership in Asia. 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". Cooper further notes "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".
Philippe Roye, managing director of Châteauform' China, explains "We can offer to our clients the use of an auditorium, a boardroom, two large plenary meeting rooms, an informal meeting room and five breakout meeting rooms. All rooms are equipped with the latest technologies. As in all Châteauform' City venues, this is a haven of peace, dedicated to your business meetings, trainings, your study days, your business breakfasts, press conferences and product exhibitions. You will be welcomed by a host couple in a 'feel at home' atmosphere and our packages are absolutely all-inclusive so there are no hidden extras.
