Specialist venue provider etc.venues is set to open a new London training venue in January 2015, bringing the total venue portfolio to 15 venues.
The new 2,000sqm West End venue will be situated at 86 Edgware Road, adjacent to Marble Arch Station, and will offer 22 rooms over three floors for up to 120 delegates.
Etc.venues Marble Arch is the specialist venue provider’s third opening in 12 months, following new openings at 155 Bishopsgate in May and Monument in September 2014.
“Our clients have said there is a shortage of our type of venue in the West End – the venue is minutes from Marble Arch and the designers are bringing in a more relaxed styled interior to banish ‘bored meetings’ and facilitate interaction,” says Director of Sales Margaretha Welsford. “A major feature will be a new open plan bar/kitchen to allow delegates to become more involved in our food.”
Frank Rosello, Head of Design added: “The new venue at Marble Arch combines a focused learning environment with an element of fun to inspire and delight. The venue has a number of design tricks up its sleeve, including a ’living wall’, use of reclaimed materials and exposed brick, a mock fire place complete with logs and mist and even table football for client use.”
