The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., has achieved One-Stop Shop Certification from the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors-International.
One-Stop Shop certification recognizes collegiate operations that deliver one contact, one contract, and one bill to meeting planners, which is the most customer friendly way to offer visiting groups services to the campus. This streamlining of conferencing and events coordination is intended to more closely match the practices of convention facilities and finer hotels.
“We are proud that we have earned this certification. There are many businesses and associations in Worcester county that are unaware of the conference space in the Hogan Campus Center,” says Elizabeth Rice, conference services manager at the College. “We have a 4400 square-foot ballroom and 18 meeting rooms, on-site catering, free parking and easy highway access. It is our hope that the public will consider the Hogan Campus Center at Holy Cross for their next conference, meeting or social event knowing they will receive personalized service with one point of contact.”
She also explains that this new certification provides an opportunity to highlight three advantages to meeting on a college/university campus: uniqueness of venue, price, and service.
Other New England colleges that received the distinction include: University of Connecticut, Yale University, University of Maine at Machias, University of New England, Endicott College, The Conference Center at Bentley, and University of Massachusetts Amherst.
