A couple of decades ago, ‘sports’ and ‘corporate’ were two words that were rarely used in the same sentence. Then, came the trend of gifting important clients tickets to iconic sporting events in order to build relationships. Some businesses started going the extra mile and throwing in beers, VIP passes, and several other add-ons to make their clients happy.
As a result of the popularity and effectiveness of this trend, sporting events became a key part of the growing corporate events industry. Today, the demands of the corporate events industry are more sophisticated than ever before. The best part is, sporting venues have been able to deliver on these demands by offering some of the most luxurious experiences one can ask for. Don’t believe us? Check out the incredibly luxurious services being offered by some of the best football stadiums in the city of London:
Stamford Bridge Stadium
Home to one of the country’s oldest and most popular football clubs, Chelsea FC, Stamford Bridge combines the ultimate entertainment value with unmatched hospitality for corporate clients. The venue boasts one of the best catering services in the country, and has executive boxes, conference rooms, and even luxury suites, to cater to the needs of their corporate clientele.
The stadium offers several experiences that one can classify as once-in-a-lifetime. From complimentary food and drinks fuelled seats right next to the penalty areas, to a luxury suite near the halfway line named after legendary player Ron “Chopper” Harris. As far as legendary players go, there are also amazing experiences on offer that are named after timeless legends such as Ted Drake and Peter Bonetti, perfect for the die-hard fans of Chelsea FC! In total, the stadium offers over 15 separate suites, boxes and experiences to choose from, leaving corporate guests spoiled for choice.
If you know that your clients are Arsenal fans, the Emirates Stadium is sure to help you deliver beyond their expectations. At a time when season tickets and add-ons have become the norm in the corporate hospitality arena, the Emirates Stadium delivers nothing short of dreams. Well, maybe not literally, but coming across a past or present player of the legendary football club while having an intimate lunch is no less than a dream for the fans of the sport.
The fun doesn’t stop there, the Emirates Stadium offers everything from VIP box access to season tickets and even special packages that give the guests priority access to ALL the events being held at the venue. Add arrival champagne drinks and round the clock concierge service to the mix, and you get the perfect recipe of luxury and mind-blowing entertainment.
Arguably the most iconic sporting venue in the country – if not the whole footballing world, Wembley, after its 2007 facelift, has plenty on offer that will please the most elite of guests. We’re talking complimentary drinks, dedicated hostesses, reserved parking, exclusive seats at the best vantage points and much, much more.
The most notable offering put forth by the iconic stadium is their customisable VIP boxes, and when we say ‘customisable’, we really, really mean it. From the seating capacity of the boxes, to the furniture and even the artwork can be customised to the needs and wants of the guests.
Corporate hospitality services like White Label Hospitality are taking the corporate hospitality game to the next level. When you treat your clients to a memorable experience, it is definitely going to fortify business relationships. Even something as simple as a conference can turn into an event worth looking forward to, if the venue and involved activities are chosen carefully.
