Corporate hospitality is an established and highly productive business tool. It’s hosting clients, staff or business contacts at sports, theatre, concert and bespoke events with not only the entrance ticket but luxurious extras included.

Your personal and business relationships will be strengthened and you should see a greater loyalty and transactions because you have taken the time to treat acquaintances exceptionally well.

Sports hospitality is an integral sector in the corporate events market.

If you happen to find out that a business acquaintance is an Arsenal FC supporter, then why not use this knowledge to your advantage by utilising Arsenal sports hospitality group experts from firms like the experienced and highly recommended DTB Sports and Events in London?

Other sports which are favourites for corporate hospitality are:

  • Rugby
  • Tennis
  • Horse racing
  • Polo
  • Cricket
  • Motorsport
  • Golf
  • Boxing
  • Darts
  • Athletics
  • Henley Regatta

Non-sporting corporate events include West End theatre shows, classical music concerts, ballet, one off events like a Coldplay concert or the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show.

Whatever the interests of the professional contact you wish to impress and win business from there will be a corporate hospitality opportunity to deliver the perfect experience.
