Definition: Ancillary conference centers are located at properties where one part of the venue is a readily identifiable conference center which qualifies for IACC membership. An ancillary conference center may occupy one (or more) floor(s), a wing, or some other clearly distinct portion of a resort, convention hotel, exhibition and/or convention hall, or other hospitality venue. Every meeting room within the designated conference center meets all IACC standards above, but IACC does not evaluate guest rooms or any meeting space outside of the conference center. In addition, IACC requires all ancillary conference centers to:
- Name the conference center in a way that readily identifies the conference center and clearly differentiates it from the remainder of the complex (e.g., the Conference Centre at Raintree, not the Raintree Hotel & Conference Centre).
- Install signage that displays the distinct name of the conference center at each public entrance to the conference center.
- Have at least one public entrance with a door that clearly separates the conference center from the remainder of the facility.
- Have a conferee reception area or lobby within the conference center.
- Have at least one set of public restrooms within the conference center.
- Have at least one conference planner dedicated exclusively to the conference center.
