About Conference & Event Services

One-Stop Shop Certified Event Planners

University of Cincinnati Conference & Event Services has achieved One-Stop Shop Certification through the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors-International (ACCED-I). The University of Cincinnati is the only university in Ohio with One-Stop Shop Certification.

One-Stop Shop Certification is the industry’s premier resource for defining and identifying conforming campus venues. A certified one-stop shop operation provides the most effective planning atmosphere to successfully stage a collegiate conference or event. One-Stop Shop certification recognizes collegiate operations that deliver one contact, one contract, and one bill to external meeting planners. This streamlining of conferencing and events coordination is intended to more closely match the practices of convention facilities and finer hotels.

  • One contact through which a planner may secure all university services
  • One contract that covers all services the planner will receive from the university
  • One bill (itemized) for all services provided by the university.

The UC conferencing staff was OUTSTANDING!!!! They were the difference that made this an outstanding meeting. We are forever grateful. MARC

Using Conference & Event Services made my life so much easier. It was wonderful to only have to focus on the content of the conference and leave the details to someone else!

7th Ohio Summit on First-Year Experience

Having done this event for six years now with CES, they can coordinate the whole meeting without help from me. Having CES puts my meeting on autopilot and frees me up to do other things.

Our experience at UC was absolutely fantastic. Both the kids and coaches loved it and we will be back next year. Everyone treated us great and I couldn’t have asked for better service.
