Jo Austin, sales director of Lime Venue Portfolio, said: "When venues join Lime Venue Portfolio, they subscribe to the very highest standards of operation, customer satisfaction and of course food, so we're delighted to see so many of our group achieve AIM accreditation. "

In addition to hotels and venues the mia welcomes suppliers as members.
