Knicely Conference Center

One–stop Shop

The Knicely Conference Center has been certified as a One-Stop Shop by the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors – International (ACCED-I). This certification has been given to only 20 other campus venues including Baylor University, the University of Idaho, the University of Wisconsin, and Colorado State University. The Conference Center is the only facility to be awarded this certification in Kentucky and Indiana.

ACCED-I’s One-Stop Shop is the industry’s premier resource for defining and identifying conforming campus venues. A certified one-stop shop is the most efficient and customer-friendly way a planner can secure services. Benefits of one-stop shopping include working with one contact to coordinate a program and receiving one contract and one bill from the university. This streamlining of conferencing and events coordination is intended to more closely match the practices of convention facilities and finer hotels.

Commenting on the program, ACCED-I executive director Deborah Blom said, "Our members coordinate the campus visits of nearly 5 million persons annually. The concept of one-stop shop certification originated with our membership because they believe it will help meeting planners to provide those millions of visitors a more predictable, enjoyable and enriching campus experience."
