This week I spoke with Adam Simpson, Director of Marketing & US Sales at etc.venues

etc.venues operates nearly 500,000 square feet of space through 17 venues across London, Birmingham, Manchester and New York. In 2019, they hosted 19,000 events attended by 965,000 delegates.

The conversation included;

> The return to live, and the nature of hybrid events

> Evolving client & sponsor requirements and expectations of venues post pandemic

> The concept of "Third space" – companies who have downsized using venues regularly for town hall meets, and other internal events

> Event industry predictions for the next 12 months
