The Stadium of Light, Sunderland, which is close to many major air, rail and road links, has just announced a special day delegate rate for the New Year, with prices starting from £20.16 per person.
This includes meeting room hire for the full day, use of a flipchart, LCD projector and screen, conference stationary and mints, welcome signage, WiFi access, free parking and assistance from a dedicated duty manager and housekeeping staff.
Delegates will also receive three servings of tea and coffee and a working lunch.
The special offer, which applies to bookings of 40 people or more made before March 31 2016, is subject to availability and can be used against any of the Stadium’s purpose-built function rooms.
These include the Montgomery Suite, which can accommodate up to 600 people for presentations and conferences, the stylish Business Lounge with room for 120 guests and the Riverview Brasserie, which offers panoramic views across the River Wear.
A separate offer has also been launched for private bookings at the Stadium of Light and its sister sites, National Glass Centre, Sunderland and The Beach House, Roker up until March 31.
It includes a range of benefits from a complimentary arrival drink to appearances by SAFC’s mascots and a former player, plus personally signed merchandise from the Barclays Premier League team and the opportunity to have a photograph taken pitch side.
Anyone booking the Personal Celebration offer, which requires a minimum of between 20 and 100 guests depending on the venue, will also receive additional incentives from the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel, which is opening adjacent to the Stadium of Light in April 2016.
For those who already have a venue in mind for their private or corporate event, SAFC’s specialist subsidiary, 1879 Events Management, which manages catering and events at the Stadium of Light, National Glass Centre and The Beach House, is also offering a 10 per cent discount on all off-site bookings before the end of January 2016.
Gary Hutchinson, Commercial Director for SAFC and 1879 Events Management, said: “Our offers for 2016 have been specifically designed to cater for a wide range of customers, with various options available for both private and corporate events.
“We hope that this will encourage continued loyalty from our existing clients and inspire new ones to give 1879 Events Management a try.”
