Margaretha Welsford, Director of Sales for etc venues:
“etc.venues County Hall is setting out to make a big bold statement to the London venue market. It’s an iconic building in an exceptional location and we believe will be a big hit with a wide range of UK and International event planners seeking a new and different London venue.
The venue offers the conference and meeting facilities that etc.venues is well known for and in addition is a statement of our ambition to target more event business particularly in the evening and at weekends. Our clients have been urging us to open something bigger and nearer the West End and after a 2 year search we’ve found the space our designers can transform into not just a top London venue but a world class venue.”
