New Liverpool Street venue and Non-Executive Chairman for etc.venues

Non-residential city centre conference venue group, etc.venues, has opened its fifth London meetings and events venue in two years with a location near Liverpool Street Station, Norton Folgate.

The venue group, which now operates in 13 locations, opened
two new venues last year and has more than doubled in size during the
recession.
 
The latest venue will open in June becoming the sixth etc.venues site operating
in the City of London.
 
“The new venue, which can host groups of up to 200, adds capacity in the heart
of the City of London where we continue to see strong demand for high spec,
well located venues,” says etc.venues’ MD, Alastair Stewart.

“Our focus on quality has really worked and continues to attract new clients
seeking alternatives to hotels and serviced offices.
 
“I am committed to continuing our expansion particularly as we see markets
improve and many of our larger competitors seem pre-occupied with financial
woes and changes in ownership.”
 
Norton Folgate will have 10 high spec meeting, training and conference rooms.
 
At the same time Maxinutrition’s Peter Boddy has been appointed as
Non-executive Chairman of the group. Boddy was previously CEO of Fitness First, where he oversaw a significant
expansion and rollout of new venues. He then moved onto Maxinutrition, which
was a success story and was sold to GlaxoSmithKline.

“Strengthening our team at a time when we are growing fast is an important part
of our strategy to stay at the top of our game,” adds Stewart.

“Peter has had an exceptional executive career in a number of sectors, most
recently at Maxinutrition which was sold to GlaxoSmithKline after a period of
rapid growth – I’m delighted he has agreed to join us to support our strategic
development.
