Since opening its first South London venue in 1992, Etc Venues has become one of Britain’s leading lights in the events industry, providing space for groups from two to 500. It now has 14 venues in Central London, one in Birmingham and one in Manchester – welcoming over 450,000 delegates each year. Every property in the Etc portfolio has flexible meeting space and has been designed cleverly for training, conferences, exhibitions, management away days, teambuilding and parties. Food is included in the prices – but you won’t see a tray of curly sandwiches. Instead, you’ll be served a continental breakfast and three-course lunch. The venues are decorated with pieces from the company’s art collection.
