HBAA give our new venue the thumbs up after recent 'Webinar'

The recent HBAA Webinar at etc.venues Victoria

The pressure was on at our new venue in Victoria recently when the Hotel Booking Agents Association (HBAA) chose it to host their 'Webinar' on the Bribery Act.


 

A room full of booking agents, event specialists and other venues in only the venue's second week of operation (not to mention a further audience watching online) certainly concentated the minds of the venue team. The event went well and the technology worked perfectly. Here's what Peter Ducker - the Executive Director of the HBAA said about it:-

When we were planning a seminar on the new Bribery Act we thought "where better than a stones throw from the Houses of Parliament?". One Drummond Gate was a superb choice. Great facilities, and what a bonus to have a garden that delegates could take their coffees or lunches out to on a beautiful summers day. The lunch buffet was interesting, different and delicious, light and just right for modern times.

As a national organisation we wanted to make this event available to all our members, even though we knew the challenges of bringing them, and their legal advisors into London for a short meeting our solution was a "hybrid meeting" - combining a conventional format with a web cast. The technical capabilities of this purpose designed venue made that easy and we ended up with a live audience of around 50 and a cyber audience of over 100, spread from Bristol to Amsterdam.
