Corporate hospitality may be perceived by some managers and business owners as a nice day out which delivers no tangible benefits except for some photographs and perhaps some bet winnings. This is a wholly inaccurate assessment.

Sporting hospitality is a high return on investment marketing tool which at the Rugby World Cup in 2015 was evaluated as essential by 80% of the management attendees questioned.

In this age of digital communication taking time away from the business place to interact face to face with associates, colleagues and clients offers arguably unrivalled dividends because positive memories and experiences last much longer than the corporate sporting events duration, they also secure loyalty.

You’ve gone the extra proverbial mile to find out about a guest’s interests and to socialise with them; an informal day at an iconic venue, rich in luxuries, fine dining potential and meet and greet opportunities with sporting heroes significantly increases brand recognition and future business.

Would you favour the supplier who took you for a pub lunch or the one who secured exceptional Six Nations tickets at Twickenham or Murrayfield with elite sportspeople and legends wandering around the corporate sporting events hospitality areas?

When you consider that corporate hospitality Six Nations tickets can cost a few hundred pounds, perhaps up to a £1100, imagine what an investment could return to your firm in money, security and business growth.

According to miceblog.com it is generation Y, younger affluent clients, who are a key target for corporate sporting events; the experience and personal touch appeals to them hugely.

England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales play their five opponents between the 3rd February and 17th March 2018 at Twickenham, Murrayfield, the Aviva Stadium, Principality Stadium, Stade de France and Stadio Olimpico. Being at home or in the pub cannot be compared with soaking in the atmosphere within the stadium and relishing each try and tackle from a few yards away.

At Six Nations 2018, England only has two home matches thanks to the alternating home advantage so if you can host your guests at these high demand, exceptional quality sporting events, you’ll make a dynamic impression.
