Last Few Tickets Remaining For Hospitality Awards 2017

Thu 4th May 2017 | Football Industry Events

The 2017 Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards is proving to be the busiest year ever, with just 5 tickets remaining until the enormous Liverpool Football Club venue is completely sold out.

The event, sponsored by Carlsberg, will be held in the new main stand on Thursday 1st June 2017, welcoming a record 480 guests.

The guests represent stadium venues from across the UK & Ireland, working in teams such as conference and events, matchday hospitality, chef teams, public catering, operational departments and senior management. Together, they will experience a fine dining four course menu, awards ceremony and entertainment, followed by onsite after party until 4am.

The event is made possible through the support from sponsors who choose to showcase their products and services in recognition of the valuable role event guests play in the hospitality industry.

Award winning event management company, the Taylor Lynn Corporation (TLC), is the most recent sponsor to confirm their support, organising the room decor and entertainment on the night. Liz Taylor, Managing Director, commented: "TLC is delighted to be involved with the biggest ever Stadium Experience awards evening.

"I am not surprised it has been selling-out so quickly. It has become a key fixture in the hospitality season, and this year will be no exception. Guests can expect a night filled with fun, the very best entertainment, and a few surprises!”

Debbie Rigney, Marketing & PR Manager for Stadium Experience who organises the awards, said:

“2017 is breaking all previous attendance records. Historically, we have welcomed around 280 guests from stadium venues across the UK & Ireland. Last year, we saw huge growth to 365 guests at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

"To grow this figure by a further this year 30% is just fantastic. We look forward to recognising and celebrating the amazing work of all of these stadium venue teams at Anfield on 1st June.”

Tickets start from £85 per person. For more information on the awards, and to purchase the tickets, please visit www.stadiumexperience.com/awards.
