CSR and Quality Governance


In April 2012, La Cité achieved the AIPC Gold Quality Standards certification, the highest level of standards established by the International Association of Convention Centres.  The programme has developed a set of international standards for convention centres. It is a means of assessing performance in terms of quality and management in 10 key areas (Customer Service, Quality of Facilities and Operations, Employee Relations, Health, Safety, Security and Emergency Response, Financial Integrity, Community Relations, Environmental Responsibility, Industry Relations and Supplier Relations). La Cité is the only French convention centre among the 28 AIPC certified centres worldwide, including 22 with the gold level.
