Discover a supercharged conference experience
Unlike many other conference venues, ours are purpose-built to optimise every single aspect of your stay. It’s why we say our venues are ‘supercharged not superficial’…
|SUPERCHARGED (OUR VENUES)||SUPERFICIAL (MANY OTHERS)|
|Floor-to-ceiling windows ensure plenty of natural light to relax and aid concentration.||Artificial lights and dimly lit rooms that leave attendees feeling drained.|
|Delicious and nutritious food created by onsite chefs to avoid energy slumps.||Floppy sandwiches wrapped in tight plastic cling film. Yuck. No thanks.|
|Sound-proofed walls and ceilings to avoid unnecessary distractions.||Bang. Bang. Bang. How do you focus when the venue’s walls are paper thin?|
|Fresh bean-to-cup coffee on tap to energise and stimulate your thinking.||Lacklustre coffee urns that dispense lukewarm over-stewed cups of sadness.|
|Contemporary design and artworks create more vibrant surroundings to inspire ideas.||Beige walls never inspired anyone. So, why do so many venues still have them?|
|Built-in AV including ceiling mounted projectors. Tech is ready to go.||Adjustable Desk Projectors that need constant fiddling. Aargh!|
|Superfast Wi-Fi that’s quick to connect to and works wherever you are in the venue.||Slow Wi-Fi that demands personal details and your life history before you connect.|
|Thoughtful layouts so speakers can be seen and heard from anywhere in the room.||Poor room layouts and ill-placed pillars that obscure the stage and presenter.|
|Ergonomic furniture ensures supreme comfort and aids attendee concentration.||Rigid seating that leaves attendees wriggling, uncomfortable and irritable.|
|In-house hybrid tech helps extend face-to-face meetings quickly and effortlessly.||Third party AV supplier who makes virtual meetings virtually impossible.|

London Conference FAQ's
The difference between a meeting room and a conference room?
Perform a quick search on Google for ‘conference rooms’ and the results will often be a long list of meeting rooms instead. Search engines often can’t tell the difference and, if you’re new to the meetings and events industry, you might not be sure, either.
So, with that in mind, we thought we’d explain the key differences:
- Size - Conference rooms tend to be spacious to accommodate large gatherings with space to network whereas meeting rooms are designed for smaller groups who want to collaborate or brainstorm together.
- Furniture - Comfortable chairs and a table are usually commonplace in a meeting room whereas in a conference space attendees often stand so that they can mingle easily.
- Tech and AV - Conference spaces tend to have high-definition digital display multi-screens, projectors and audio equipment all built-in whereas meeting rooms tend to be more basic (although at etc.venues even our meeting rooms have built-in screens and projectors!).
These are just top-line differences. If you’d like to know more, get in touch.
