International Association of Conference Centers|IACC Certified

The IACC (International Association of Conference Centers) certification is a seal of excellent quality that is trusted by meeting planners and hospitality professionals worldwide. IACC serves its members by being the global leader in the meetings industry and currently has over 400 members in 21 countries in America and Europe. 


To Become An IACC Certified

To become an IACC certified venue, members must demonstrate a commitment to the highest standards in design, facilities, and services – as well as meet technology criteria. Potential venues must go through an application process to ensure the standards set by the association are met.  This is what sets IACC certified venues apart from other meeting facilities and why they are ranked in the top 1% of small and medium sized meeting venues in the world.

Both of our facilities adhere to these special standards set forth by IACC, which makes us the ideal venue for all your offsite meeting needs. 

Why Choose Our Venue?

At the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood, we have gone through a hotel-wide expansion and renovation which includes our 30 soundproof meeting rooms plus our larger Tiffany Ballroom.  Our meeting rooms feature flexible seating configurations, state-of-the-art audiovisual technology, comfortable ergonomic chairs, wireless high-speed internet access, non-glare lighting, individual key locking systems, and much more.

Our Forefront Center for Meetings & Conferences is a great alternative if you are planning meetings north of Boston. The Forefront Center offers a variety of rooms, ranging from small meeting space for groups of six to twelve, up to the presentation room, which can seat up to 150 people depending on the seating arrangement. We can configure the seating plan to your special requirements, including break-out sessions or computer labs, and help you choose the space with the appropriate capacity for your event.  

IACC certified venues also offer meeting packages to fit your half day or full day needs. The continuous food and beverage will keep you coming back for more!
