The IACC is an international community of likeminded business professionals representing the top 1% of conference venues globally. Lane End Conference Centre has been a member since 2015 and honoured to be associated with a group of people dedicated to shaping the future of the meetings industry.
The IACC list 375 venues in 24 countries around the world and bearing their logo is a seal of quality that is trusted globally. In their own words, the IACC is a global community of passionate people and companies delivering innovative and exceptional meeting experiences.
Having embodied this statement throughout his years of service to Lane End, we couldn’t be prouder to announce that our very own Director of Sales and Marketing, Heni Fourie, has been elected to the IACC European board of directors.
Heni has worked tirelessly to improve the conference experience at Lane End, and build its reputation and brand - elevating it to become one of the highest rated conference venues in the UK. In a recent customer survey 95% of people said they would recommend Lane End to a colleague. He is fully deserving of the recognition for all of his many efforts, and we wish him the best of luck with his new responsibilities in delivering the IACC’s mission and values.
Heni will be one of two new directors joining the board, the other being Gail Tomlinson-Short from Warwick Conferences, with both of them joining alongside three members re-elected for this coming year.
The five IACC European board members elected comprise of:
- Heni Fourie, Director Sales & Marketing, Lane End Conference Centre, UK
- Gail Tomlinson-Short, Client Relationship Manager, Warwick Conferences, UK
- James Russ, Operations Director, CCT Venues, UK
- Gunilla Runsten, CEO, Ronneberga Konferens, Sweden
- Alan Corlett, Group Commercial Revenue Director, Principal Hotel Company, UK
“I am delighted to be joining the IACC’s European board. This is a highly motivated group of professionals committed to sharing best practise and challenging each other to ensure industry-wide innovation on a global scale. I am honoured to be given the opportunity to contribute to the continued success of this progressive community.” Heni Fourie
