We're winners again at the MIMA Awards!
The web team at etc.venues are delighted as a lot of time goes into ensuring the website give as good a user experience as possible so visitors can really get to see the venues and space on offer when planning an event or working out which venues are going to be most valuable to visit in person.
The judges especially liked the video content on the site and also the relatively new ‘Google venue tours’ that really allow a full tour of every inch of a venue from the comfort of your desk (like Google Street View but inside). They also commented on the Food Blog which is a wonderful way for our chefs to really channel their passion for creating great food as well as allowing visitors to our venues to see recipes of the food they have enjoyed during their event with us. The booking tool was also mentioned as a great way to check availability and prices but also to make a quick and easy online booking if the decision has already been made.
The site is great but we like to keep it fresh and are already in the process of a re-design (well the current design is 18 months old now – a long time in today’s fast moving tech world).
Look out for a bold new look soon but in the meantime visit the current award winning site at http://www.etcvenues.co.uk/
The award ceremony itself was a cracking event – hosted by the good people at Cat Publications who raised nearly £23,000 on the night for the Meetng Industry Meeting Needs charity which is fantastic.
