The venue has seen an increase in bookings across all types of event and a particular rise in large events and meetings bookings, which made up 81% of total bookings in February. 

The sales team also received an increased number of enquiries with a total potential revenue value of £1.8m.

Twickenham Experience attributes this to a focused sales effort and presence at industry events and trade shows.

Head of conference and event sales, James Lee, said: "Meetings and large production events are core to our business so it’s great to see such a strong proportion of these being booked. I think our versatility and the variety of spaces and capacities at Twickenham mean that we can offer a great environment for teams and delegates to regroup and truly focus.

"I think this will be the year that people realise the value of the inspirational environment we offer and I hope we will continue to benefit from this, not just before and during, but also after such a momentous year for the home of England rugby."
