About Conference & Event Services

The Conference & Event Services (CES) Team takes pride in offering professional event service planning and operations for the campus community and to non-university clients. It’s what we do every day. Our operations have been recognized nationally by ACCED-I, which has twice certified what we do and how we deliver.

One-Stop Shop Certified Department

The CES department is certified as a One-Stop Shop office by the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors-International (ACCED-I). The University of Cincinnati is one of three universities in Ohio with One-Stop Shop Certification. A certified one-stop shop operation provides you the most effective planning atmosphere to successfully stage a collegiate conference or event. You benefit from:

  • One contact you work with to secure all university services.
  • One contract that covers all services you order from the university.
  • One bill (itemized) for all services provided by the university.
