The Stadium Events and Hospitality Awards recognise the fantastic commitment of the matchday hospitality and specialist event teams that work tirelessly behind the scenes at major football and rugby stadium venues across the UK & Ireland. The 2018 Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards were held in May at Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club – See a short video of the event here.
The 2019 awards will be hosted at Etihad Stadium, home to Manchester City FC on Thursday 20th June 2019.
The Audience: The awards are an excellent opportunity to raise your profile to top stadia venues, with around 450 guests in attendance on the night, from 50+ stadium venues across the UK and Ireland. Guests include decision-makers from teams such as sales, conference and events, matchday hospitality, chef teams, public catering teams, operational departments and senior management attending to share the celebrations and network.
