Tel.:0845 2305508 Fax:0845 2307708

The MIA is the UK and Ireland’s leading professional organisation for the meetings industry.

Founded in 1990, the MIA is the largest trade association for all organisations involved in the meetings industry and has become the forum for all professional groups committed to improving the standards of the UK meetings industry.

Membership is available to professional organisations in one of three categories:

  1. Accredited Venues: eg hotels, conference centres, football clubs, racecourses, private members clubs, and stately homes.
  2. Accredited Suppliers: eg booking agents, IT suppliers, catering services, venue finding services, conference bureaus, and tourist boards.
  3. Associate Members: eg buyers.

Accredited venue members and accredited supplier members pay an annual fee to the MIA. Associate buyer members can join the MIA for free.

AIM (Accredited In Meetings) is the MIA’s own quality standard scheme first launched in 2007 which offers an assurance to buyers that members will deliver their promise of exceptional standards. It is the meetings industry’s only accreditation programme.

AIM confirms that all venue and supplier members operate legally and ethically and have achieved accreditation at Entry level. However, Silver and Gold levels can be achieved by venues which meet advanced criteria such as excellent customer service, innovation and a commitment to continuous improvement.

The MIA also offers members a range of services including discounted training, buyer mailing lists, conference market research, free recruitment advertising, networking opportunities and reduced rates at industry exhibitions.
