The popularity of hosting events in different venues rather than your standard hotel or conference environment, means that choosing a sporting stadium has become a top choice for corporate events.
There are prestigious sporting conference, meeting and event facilities throughout the UK which can play host to any type of corporate event. The central locations of these venues mean they are easily accessible with great transport links, and usually lots of car parking on site free of charge.
The flexibility of space available at stadiums means they can cater for small intimate events in one of their many hospitality boxes to very large-scale conferences & exhibitions. Stadiums usually offer high-tech facilities with all of the up-to-date technology required to host all types of events.
Many of the event spaces provide fabulous views overlooking the pitches and an added incentive of a stadium tour or a guest speaker could be just what you need to give your event that extra ‘Wow factor’.
Some of the venues also offer on-site accommodation with hotels being built either attached to the venue or very close by.
Hospitality packages are also available at many of the sporting venues where you can entertain your VIP clients
