Casa hotel achieves AIM accreditation

Release Date: 17th April 2012

Casa Hotel in Chesterfield has achieved AIM accreditation, the nationwide certification for the meetings industry.

The independent, 4-star hotel opened its doors less than 18 months ago, but Casa’s 11 purpose built conference rooms are proving popular with local and national businesses, including leading companies from the financial, pharmaceutical and professional services.

The sixth floor conference suite offers panoramic views of the Derbyshire countryside with the latest in conference technology, and Casa can accommodate up to 280 delegates.

The accreditation indicates the high standards throughout the hotel and is another accolade to add to the hotel’s growing number of awards. Since opening, Casa has been named ‘Most Innovative Building’ by the Derbyshire Times, confirmed Casa has the ‘Comfiest beds in the UK’ and received the highest four star rating and a Rosette for outstanding food and service from the AA.

Operations Director Stuart Downham commented:

“We are delighted to have achieved this accolade in such a short period of time. We believe that we are offering some of the best conference facilities outside of London, and being recognised by AIM confirms this”.

Casa will be present at the Conference and Hospitality show on the 25th April 2012, stand 56 and will be offering some fantastic delegate offers to the attendees.
