For the period of July 2013 to July 2014, Twickenham Experience, the corporate events department at Twickenham Stadium, stated that conferences and meetings remain the majority share of its business at 58%.

Exhibition revenue has also grown to 20% of total sales, while Christmas party bookings for 2013 recorded a 40% increase.

In the 12 months between July 2013 and July 2014 Twickenham Experience hosted more than 700 corporate events.

Chris Morris, managing director of Twickenham Experience, said: "We have recorded strong results in the last financial year and, with the strengthening of the economy, expect interest to continue to grow.

"With the Rugby World Cup around the corner in 2015, the excitement at the stadium is building and there has never been a better time for businesses to associate their events with the strong values of the RFU, which include teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.

"We are starting this new financial year in great shape. With a bigger team and a re-focused sales and marketing strategy, we are confident of a strong 2014/15 in conference and event sales."

Earlier this month, Twickenham expanded its events team with the appointment of Kirsten Coleman to the role of conference and events sales administrator.
