Conference Venues as Art Galleries? etc.venues Combines Form with Function at its Award-Winning London Conference Venues

etc.venues now has a 600-strong collection of art displayed across its English conference venues

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2012) - etc.venues extends its commitment to CSR by creating attractive and functional conference venues in London with its extensive art collection. The month of November saw the award-winning conference venues London operator showcase 30 pieces of sculpture, painting and photography from Godolphin School for Girls at The Hatton. The collection was celebrating 25 years of art at the school, which educates girls between 16 and 18 years of age.

etc.venues believes in supporting as well as inspiring. It inspires its delegates through its unique collection of art works from a broad spectrum of artists, both professional and amateur, that now spans more than 600 pieces. It supports local artists and initiatives by both paying fair rates for artworks and showcasing pieces throughout its venues where all manner of delegates will cast their eyes over the works.

etc.venues has won numerous awards for its venues in London and Birmingham and one of the reasons the venue provider is so successful is its choice of interior decoration. etc.venues doesn't pick homogenous furniture used across its 12 venues. Instead it picks unique items that are both functional and stylish. Natural daylight complimented by vibrant colours - notably expressed in art - and furniture that serves a purpose while oozing character are the cornerstones of etc.venues' aesthetic.

Each of the company's venues, whether in London or Birmingham, is completely unique. There are nine venues in the capital and each plays up its location and building design in its interior decoration. For example, the expansive converted warehouse of Bonhill House in Liverpool Street also boasts its own, stand alone contemporary art collection. The Hatton, in Hatton Garden, is a stunning Art Deco building where art is part and parcel of the venue and St. Paul's, which is an attractive exhibition-style space moments from St. Paul's Cathedral.

No two venues are the same in terms of style and design, but great service and high quality catering can be found throughout every single etc.venues conference space.
