etc.venues 133 Houndsditch
Our 133 Houndsditch venue, within The City of London, is a perfect example of how meticulous thinking creates better flow and leads to a better overall experience for conference planners, exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees.
Every detail is engineered for success from the state-of-the-art technology that’s seamlessly integrated; the unique layout that assists with the flow of an agenda (gently moving attendees throughout the space); uninhibited sightlines putting the speaker front and centre and helping to clearly showcase exhibitors and sponsors; space-saving half-moon tables that maximise delegate numbers; nutritious food served in bento boxes for easier networking and an attentive team that feels more like an extension of the client.
The result? It is a testament to the success of 133 Houndsditch that 80% of clients re-book each year (and the only reason some clients don’t re-book is because they have simply outgrown the venue’s maximum capacity).
