The fourth and final test match between England and India on August 18 was the occasion as Keith Prowse hosted corporate event planners, event businesses and journalists at the Kia Oval in Surrey, to promote its new corporate hospitality packages.
The hospitality provider laid on a gourmet dining experience in the 80-capacity Players’ Lounge, situated in the OCS stand at the ground. Guests also enjoyed expert analysis from former England cricketers Alec Stewart and Mark Butcher at regular intervals during the day’s play.
On the field, the England cricket team justified their place as newly crowned number one test side in the world by defeating India convincingly.
Keith Prowse head of marketing Ted Walker said: 'The emergence of Twenty20 and England's recent success [in test match cricket] have paved the way for a new generation of cricket fans, and with it a new wave of companies wishing to enjoy the best in hospitality.'
David Pullan, commercial and operations director at the Kia Oval, said: 'The Kia Oval is a welcoming and relaxed environment in which to enjoy the best corporate entertaining to be found in sport. We are delighted that our offer continues to attract young, dynamic companies into cricket.'
