The Holte Suite at Aston Villa FC was named ‘Venue of the Year’ at the prestigious Birmingham Awards.
The Villa Park hospitality area came out on top against high-quality venues from across the city, with staff on hand to accept the award on stage at the Library of Birmingham.
Edgbaston, Resorts World Arena, The Birmingham Conference & Events Centre, The ICC, The National Motorcycle Museum, The Vox and Unique Venues Birmingham were also shortlisted for the award.
Laura Johns, Head of Sales Conference and Events for club catering partner Levy UK, was delighted to see the venue recognised.
She said: “We work hard to deliver an excellent experience at Villa Park all year round, so I’m thrilled that our efforts in the Holte Suite have been rewarded.
“This award is for the staff who work tirelessly on every matchday and at every event to ensure that the venue is a great place to be.”
Saturday’s accolade follows up the ‘Best Venue’ award given to Villa Park at last year’s Midlands Food, Drink & Hospitality Awards.
Head of Hospitality, Laura Worsey, was thrilled that the Holte Suite was chosen ahead of prestigious competitors.
She said: “We were up against some excellent venues from across Birmingham, which makes winning this award even more special.
“We see Villa Park as the premier venue in the region for both football supporters and corporate clients, and this award is justification of that.”
