Sports stadiums around the globe offer corporate suites or corporate boxes at a vantage point within the stadium. Some of the larger stadiums such as the MCG have as many as 2500 seats dedicated exclusively to VIPs. However, sports teams hiring the stadium can allocate these seats to their sponsors. Although there have been complaints from fans and players around the globe that prime space is being taken up by these corporate suites, particularly in regions like Europe and US, thankfully, the situation has been better across Australia and enjoys a’ better blend’ between fan seating and corporate seating. Corporate facilities at the MCG are reckoned as the best in the nation without denting its great atmosphere. Nevertheless, stadiums free Wi-Fi has come under criticism from fans since many people tend to be looking at their smartphones during the game instead of watching the players. East Coast Events Management Company are an experienced company that caters to business professionals and corporate clients.
For every business, getting noticed and networking with potential clients is of the greatest importance. Many sports stadiums around Australia and elsewhere give you this very opportunity literally on a platter. Remember, the sporting event itself is organized by the football or cricket or other sports clubs. That makes one major part of your job a no-brainer. The MCG, for instance, has a capacity of 100,000 people and it is filled to capacity on most occasions. Your task, therefore, is simply to choose the right event and book your corporate suite/box well ahead of the schedule so that you get the best vantage point before your competitors can grab that.
Tailoring a package
Your role, as a corporate customer, in getting the best out of this attractive facility in different stadiums is to get a package that is tailored to address your specific needs. If we consider cricket, for instance, the competing teams move across Australia, and it could be possible for you to strike a deal with the appropriate bodies to cover all venues. This way, your business/products can attract the maximum eye-balls at an attractive price compared to making bookings at independent venues. Nevertheless, you should also spare a thought to your own market presence across the nation.
Most Australian stadiums enjoy a successful history of providing corporate hospitality and sponsorship opportunity for varying objectives. Many of them even have a dedicated team focusing on corporate hospitality that can work with you in choosing the most appropriate package to make sure that your experience is memorable. In some of the stadiums, you have the ability to consider a luxurious corporate suite/box overlooking the pitch or a more private space equipped with a plasma TV in an informal setting where you can discuss business with your guests without sacrificing the interest in the ongoing game.
