First New York location for etc.venues

Venue specialist also adds Chancery Lane location to its London portfolio, with both to open later this year.

Etc.venues will open its first New York venue later this year, as well as its 17th location in the UK.

The first of multiple venues planned for New York, 360 Madison Avenue in Midtown is scheduled to open in late 2019. The contemporary space will cover 4,180sqm and host events over two interconnecting floors.

The company has global expansion plans, with two more New York venues planned in the next 12 months as part of a $35m investment.

"We want to share our flair with New York professionals who need stylish, elegant, highly contemporary space to interact, learn, get inspired and do business," said Nick Hoare, chief operating officer of etc.venues UK.

"Think hotels without bedrooms but with high quality service in every other area. Today we formally export that specialism to the US, home of the most dynamic but under-served meetings venue market."  

Etc.venues has also added Chancery Lane London to its collection, close to Holborn and Farringdon tube stations.

"As of this Spring, we’re larger than both Hilton and Marriott in Central London with a total of 278 meeting rooms," added Hoare.

"We plan to double the size of the entire business over the next three to five years as we work towards becoming the global leader in urban conference and event centres."

"Gone are the days of stuffy, expensive syndicate rooms and additional charges for trainers’ offices," said Franck Rosello, head of design at etc.venues.

"Delegates want to enjoy more collaborative space and etc.venues Chancery Lane will bring it in abundance. It’s an exciting, uplifting contrast of old and new, combining brick, concrete, timber and leather finishes to create a feel, unlike other London training spaces."
