The event will be hosted at the American Express Community Stadium, home of premiership football team, Brighton & Hove Albion FC.  The date of the celebration will be on Thursday 31st May 2018.  The prestigious awards event aims to recognise the efforts and dedication shown by the catering, conference and events teams at every football and rugby stadium across the UK and Ireland.

Around 400 guests will be welcomed to experience a four course menu, awards ceremony, entertainment, followed by DJ and an exclusive onsite after party, all organised by Stadium Experience and the stadium venues catering partner, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events.   Guests will receive a warm welcome to the Mayo Wynne Baxter Lounge with a complimentary drinks reception – including Heineken beer.  The welcome reception will also include a showcase of Heineken’s latest beer pouring technology, ideal for incremental sales opportunities in stadia settings.

Gareth Head, Regional Sales Director from Heineken commented: “This is a fantastic event to be part of, and allows Heineken to showcase not only our brands, but also some of the fantastic technology we have that can enhance any consumers experience both in stadiums and bars.”

Debbie Rigney, Marketing & PR Manager for Stadium Experience, said: “This is the 14th annual awards organised by Stadium Experience, which continues to grow bigger and better every year. We would like to thank Heineken for their support this year, and we look forward to working together.”
