etc.venues doubles the size of 155 Bishopsgate
etc.venues, a leading provider of urban non-residential event venues in the UK and New York City, is investing £4.3 million to double the size of its highly successful venue at 155 Bishopsgate in London.
It is adding 1,858 square metres of exclusive conference space on the second floor, with escalator access from the existing event space on the first floor, to create a 3,716 square-metre venue – one of the largest in the City of London. The main room on the new floor will accommodate up to 475 theatre-style and is supported by a Galleria and Lounge that can accommodate up to 51 exhibition stands.
“Following the news of our acquisition by Convene, we start the partnership as we mean to go on – by expanding rapidly,” said Nick Hoare, managing director of etc.venues. Our UK and New York City businesses have thrived since the end of the pandemic and bookings for 2023 are strong so we are keen to bring more space to this buoyant market.
“This is just the beginning,” Hoare continued. “Convene and etc.venues has an extensive pipeline for London and the US. However, the newly combined UK businesses offer a platform for European expansion via M&A, organically and working with forward thinking landlords on providing building amenities.”
