The new Allianz Park – which is the home of Aviva Premiership rugby team Saracens – features event space for conferences, product launches, gala dinners and exhibitions.

The facilities at the Barnet venue include an indoor arena with a 1,200 capacity, three banquet rooms for 650 attendees and fourteen breakout rooms for groups of between two and 60.

The Saracens will leave their temporary home at Vicarage Road at the end of January 2013, following their final match at the ground against Edinburgh, which took place on 20 January.

The official opening of the new 10,000-seat stadium and event facilities is 16 February, when Exeter Chiefs become the inaugural visitors to Saracens' new ground.
