Which Forbes product was called ‘bullet-proof’ ?

A raft of industry awards proves that etc.venues know a thing or two about hosting successful events, training and conferences. Their business model includes iconic buildings located close to metropolitan transport hubs, with light and airy rooms, contemporary streamlined interiors, a modern and energetic vibe, top-spec technological installations, various room sizes, relaxed break-out spaces, and healthy food cooked in-house.

Oh, and decent coffee – they made more than 1.1 million cups last year.

So when Franck Rosello, the group’s Central Operations and Projects Manager buys a product and then comes back for more, we figure it’s worth telling you about it.

We’ve been working with etc.venues for over a decade and in that time have supplied each of their fourteen venues. They have had our table skirting, stage skirting, Alu-Lite tables, conference cloths, Buffet-Rite table tops, Silcra stretch covers, and cocktailtables. And tailor-made covers for those hard-pressed coffee machines.

So which earned the ‘bullet-proof’ moniker? Perhaps surprisingly, given its soft brushed texture, it was our Berkley conference cloth. Etc.venues like it in slinky black, in keeping with their signature look. To date we have been pleased to supply over 250 drop covers, many in bespoke half-moon shapes, for their meeting tables in London and Birmingham.

It’s what we mean when we say ‘hard-wearing’. Only now, you don’t have to take our word for it.“They add value both operationally and to the client experience,” says Franck. Besides muffling sound and giving a premium environment to delegates, the cloths’ colour hides marks and, being made to the shape of the etc.venues tables, they simply drop over the tables, so are quick to set-up, saving valuable staff time. Then, when they need freshening up, they are machine-washable, time and time again – ‘Bullet-proof’.

So if you need an update for the coming conference season, whatever the size of your party – political or other – please don’t hesitate to ask for advice or samples by calling us on 01568 616638 or email – We’ll be pleased to help.

Our sincere thanks to Franck Rosello and etc.venues for taking the time to share their thoughts with us, and for permission to reproduce their photographs.
