In March 2020, etc.venues opened its first location at 360 Madison, New York. Dubbed "360 degrees of wow," the venue received plaudits across the industry from planners, journalists (including the Wall Street Journal) and even picked up a prestigious Stella Award.
So, what was it that won the admiration of the judging panel?
Introducing something a "Brit different"
For starters, the team behind 360 Madison is British. As one of the UK’s leading meeting space providers, etc.venues has developed a reputation for doing things a "Brit different."
For over 27 years, they’ve hosted events for Prime Ministers, Royalty and countless dignitaries. They’ve developed a reputation for impressing the hard to impress. Now that they’re in the US, they’ve set their sights on delighting us.
360 Madison: Created with your New York City event in mind
The moment you step inside, you’ll see that every aspect of 360 Madison has been created with your event in mind — from the ease of entry and clear open areas to meet and greet, to the long list of opportunities to brand and own your space so it becomes an extension of your company.
etc. venues' inspiring design
Meticulous thought has gone into room layouts, colors, specially commissioned art works, and floor-to-ceiling windows allow plenty of natural light; keeping attendees inspired and at their best.
Onsite chefs create mouth-watering, energy-boosting dishes to keep attendees powered-up whilst unlimited fresh bean-to-cup coffee is always on tap.
Smarter built-in tech
All AV is built-in and ready to go. Connecting devices is effortless with hi-speed WiFi included in the DMP (Daily Meetings Package).
Hybrid Event Solutions
For those who want to keep one foot in the virtual space, etc.venues also offers planners a fully managed hybrid events solution. In fact, you may even have seen the platform in action as 360 Madison hosted the first hybrid event in New York (for Nectr) and, most recently, hosted Mission Critical with NYC & Co’s Fred Dixon.
etc.venues now at 601 Lexington Avenue
Following the successful launch of 360 Madison, the team at etc.venues has opened a second meeting and event venue in Midtown. Located within one of the city’s most iconic skyscrapers, 601 Lexington Avenue is everything we’re now beginning to expect from this exciting new venue provider. Look forward to contemporary design, outstanding touch-free food and award-winning hospitality — all within Covid-controlled space.
Back to excellence
After months of waiting to fully open their doors, the team at etc.venues insists that they’re not back to normal, they’re back to excellence! Their reception teams are back, ready to welcome us into their venues. Their operations teams are back, planning every single detail. And their award-winning chefs are back, creating incredible dishes to energize and delight.
With an approach like this, it’s no wonder they scooped a Stella award for Best Conference Center Northeast US!
