Sundial Group's Managing Director, Tim Chudley, has received the Global Distinguished Service Award in recognition for his contribution to the International Association of Conference Centres (IACC).
The annual award recognises IACC members who have made a sustained commitment and contribution to both the IACC and the conference centre industry worldwide.
Supporting IACC's activities for over 20 years, Chudley has served as both UK and Global President, as well as holding many other board positions. He has also been an active supporter of IACC's staff exchange programme, accepting staff from member properties into the Sundial Group and vice versa.
He has played a significant role in introducing IACC's Copper Skillet cooking competition on a global scale and was a key leader in bringing European members together under the banner of IACC Europe.
Peter Stewart, Global President of the IACC, who presented the award said:
"Tim Chudley is a leader well-known in IACC circles around the world for his contributions to our industry. Some of the innovations IACC has adopted throughout the world are testament to his vision."
In acceptance of the award, Tim Chudley said:
"The conference centre concept is at the heart of IACC and Sundial Group's vision of providing the best possible environment for meetings. I have been very proud to, in some way, be instrumental in developing this and helping spread best practice around the world. It is especially gratifying to know that this award is the result of votes by my peers in the industry."
