Satisfied customers have helped put one of Sussex’s leading event venues in line for a major business award.Brighton’s Amex Stadium – home to Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club – is a finalist in the Place to Meet category in the prestigious Gatwick Diamond Business Awards, held annually to celebrate the achievements of world-class businesses in the region.
And the stadium’s catering partner, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, believes excellent feedback from corporate clients, along with Investors in People Silver Award status and the introduction of new, healthy menus, boosted its submission.
The winner of the Place to Meet category must clearly demonstrate they understand the essence of a top meeting place for business and the needs of those who use it.
They must also show flexibility, a commitment to please their customers and deliver a service of a high standard that represents value for money. Above all the venue and the service should contribute to the success of customers’ meetings.
The winners in all 13 categories will be announced at a black tie ceremony hosted by Episodes actor Stephen Mangan, at the Effingham Park Hotel, Copthorne, West Sussex, on 16 March.
“We are overjoyed to have made it to the final of this category,” said Kathy Taylor, sales and marketing manager for Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events at the Amex Stadium.
“And very grateful to all our satisfied customers for taking the time and trouble to provide testimonials for us.” The Amex Stadium has some of the most modern and versatile corporate facilities in the region, with complimentary on-site parking and its own, dedicated, main line railway station, linking it to the heart of London.
Along with its nine main conference and event suites, which can cater for two to 500 people, the stadium has 21 executive boxes seating up to 10 guests with uninterrupted views of the pitch.
