The prospective revenue covers meetings, events and conferences at the venue, up by 75% based on January 2012. An average of 70 individual enquiries were taken per week.
Simon Hunter, head of venue and brand at Chelsea FC, said that the figures illustrate a number of booking trends including evidence that lead times are increasing after a significant number of enquiries were taken for November 2013 and beyond.
Events held at the venue are predominately banquets and include a residential element, both types making use of the venue’s numerous spaces capable of hosting large dinners and award ceremonies and the 281 hotel bedrooms available at the two onsite hotels.
The venue can host small dinners for 10 and conferences or exhibitions for thousands of delegates, the enquiries range in size and choice of event space, as well as including a number of events requiring multiple spaces.
Hunter added: "We have a diverse range of event spaces available which can be combined in any way to create a bespoke event, banquet or conference. These enquiries continue to underline that this is a major factor in organisers choosing Chelsea Football Club. In addition to this, our ability to offer flexible event spaces, restaurants, hotels, car parking and even an after event music venue or stadium tour means that we are both a cost effective and unique venue choice".
