etc.venues is a leading provider of urban venues for conferences and events in London and the UK. With the first of three New York venues just announced and a 17th UK event space due to be opened, etc.venues is embarking on a transformation into a global brand.
Stewart was commended by the judges for successfully leading “his business through various cycles” and for “creating immense value”. etc.venues has grown almost seven-fold with Alastair at the helm and plans to double in size in the next 3-5 years under newly-strengthened leadership which sees Nick Hoare join as COO and Ed Ethelston as FD.
Paul Etherington, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year leader for the Thames Valley and South, said: “Congratulations to Alastair for being recognised at our Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 London & South East awards last week, and for his hard work in transforming etc.venues to be the successful business it is today. Alastair’s personal story is inspirational, having led the business through two successful UK PE investment cycles.
