Awards & Accreditations
We’ve won plenty of awards over the years for everything from great venue facilities to responsible environmental practice.
The London Venue Awards 2018
At CCT Venues, we're proud to be an inclusive company - so we are thrilled to be recognised for our commitment to equality by receiving the Silver Award in the Best Venue for Employing Women and Gender Equality category at the London Venue Awards 2018.

CCT Venues is AIM accredited. AIM is the quality mark of the Meetings Industry Association (MIA), which guarantees that our London meeting venues comply with all essential legal requirements and meet high standards of quality and service.
The Wharf Innovation in Business
In 2016 we won the award of Highly Commended Medium-to-Large business at The Wharf Innovation in Business awards. This was in recognition of innovation in a number of ways including how we creatively meet our clients’ needs, how we reward our team members, and our employee awards programme through which we identify and reward great examples of customer care.
Environmentally responsible venues
CCT Venues won the prestigious Chairman’s Cup Award as part of the Clean City Awards organised by the City of London Corporation in 2016
This follows a strong track record of winning the Platinum Award every year since 2010, and previously received a Gold Award
The award recognises a tireless effort at CCT Venues-Barbican and CCT Venues-Smithfield (our City of London venues) for following the best practice we adopt across all our London conference venues. This involves increasing our recycling and reuse activity, and reducing waste and litter.
Awards are based on site visits by inspectors and evidence submitted by entrants. In addition, the Platinum Award application looks at staff communications and the reduction of smoking-related litter.
