Up to 850 industry movers and shakers headed to the venue last night to enjoy antipasti, champagne and a range of canapés that included mini roast beef and yorkshire puddings, artichokes, sushi and a mini ploughmans bite provided by the event space's in-house caterer.
AVC Prtoductions installed a number of plasma screens displaying a Twitter wall and videos of Etc Venues as well as news channels, and a social wall.
To keep guests entertained H2OH brought in stilt walkers and acrobats in a tall frame structure, a Hula Hoopist and a harpist.
One of the first events to be held in the venue will be Event's The Guide Live, which is taking place on Friday 20 April. If you are an in-house brand event organiser or agency you can apply for a free ticket here.
