Corporate Offers For February & March
Featured News | 2nd February 2010
Catering Manager Neil McGowan hopes to convince Nottinghamshire businesses to host their corporate events at Trent Bridge by offering a special day delegate rate for corporate events held in February and March.
Having joined Nottinghamshire from Leicester City Football Club in January 2009, Neil is already a veteran of two One Day Internationals and the ICC World Twenty20 and is pleased to see his initial vision coming to fruition.
“I’ve found working in cricket to be completely different to what I experienced when I worked at Leicester City because of the sheer length of time guests are able to enjoy our hospitality,” he said.
“It’s not unknown for guests at football fixtures to be in and out within two hours whereas a trip to the cricket can mean three meals over nine hours and you have to be on your toes all of the time.
“We’ve reconsidered everything we do and that process began by examining the experience of a spectator at a domestic fixture and considering what they wanted from a visit to Trent Bridge and how we could give them value for money.
“We’ve made a big shift towards local suppliers which was an obvious but very important step to take and we’ve applied the same principles to our corporate offering.”
The special day delegate rate is on offer in a bid to reward existing clients and attract prospective corporate customers to Trent Bridge with reduced rates on new bookings for meetings and events held in February or March.
“Our unique selling point is the backdrop of one of the world’s most recognised Test Match venues and that holds a lot of appeal,” said Neil.
“We’ve hosted conferences, trade fairs and meetings for a long time but I’m very keen to progress things and encourage new clients to use our facilities.
“We’re more than just a cricket ground and although we want to be known for the hospitality and service we provide at major matches, it’s important that we continue to operate when cricket isn’t being played.”
