But don't take our word for it....
According to The Meetings Market Survey from BDRC Continental (an independent research company specialising in the Hotel and Venue industry) etc.venues are the ones to look out for in 2012!!!!
This is what they had to say in their latest report...
"With a further three sites added to their ever developing portfolio in the past 12 months, etc. venues are now on an admirable path to add further venues as the expansion continues.
The news for the brand in 2011 is extremely positive with over half of Agents now familiar with etc.venues. The brand has also particularly resonated with Association bookers, with prompted awareness doubling in the space of 12 months, and usage jumping to 10%. The biggest recorded shift of any brand in this segment!
Usage of these venues is likely to result in positive word of mouth from Agents, given one of the highest recommendation levels of any brand included in the survey. Further positive news comes from the imagery battery, with etc.venues the forerunner on a number of statements compared to their competitor set. The one to watch in 2012."
We couldn't agree more....watch this space for more news on our exciting plans for the future!
