What are the benefits of holding an event in a stadium?
Clients have the opportunity to run down the player's tunnel, kick a ball on the pitch, or even host a cocktail party in the change rooms! Stadiums provide access to exciting spaces that they can't access every day, so this makes for unique experiences.
Why is holding an event in an unusual setting important?
I feel the best way to connect, communicate with or thank your guests is to provide them with an experience they will remember. If you want your guests to think about you long after the event is over, you need to give them something to talk about. Hosting your event at Eden Park is unusual and a really great way to make an impact.
What is unique about your venue?
In October 2010, Eden Park launches its $280 million re-development. The new event suites and lounge facilities will allow groups of up to 1000 people to make the most of the stunning views across the city and the pitch. Our clients will be able to use interesting spaces creating individualised experiences for their guests.
What are the ingredients for a truly exceptional stadium event?
Exceptional events everywhere require trust in your suppliers, clear communication and great planning to culminate in a successful time for everyone involved.
What's the best tip that you have learnt in your career?
Have a clear vision and communicate it clearly to everyone around you.
