The UMass Hotel and Conference Center has achieved One-Stop Shop Certification through the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors-International (ACCED-I).
One-Stop Shop Certification recognizes collegiate operations that deliver one contact, one contract and one bill to meeting planners. This streamlining of conferencing and events coordination is intended to more closely match the practices of convention facilities and finer hotels.
The Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors-International was founded in 1980 and currently has a membership of over 1,750 members from more than 625 colleges and universities in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. ACCED-I is the only independent educational association dedicated to professional growth and development in the collegiate conference and events profession.
