Four of Twickenham’s VIP suites have received a design overhaul, including the addition of new technology and floor-to-ceiling windows that maximise views of the pitch.

Access to the Spirit of Rugby room and members’ lounge, which are popular conference spaces, has been updated thanks to a new guest entrance. Other improvements include the addition of new bar areas in the Council Room and ante room of the President’s Suite, and a larger members’ lounge bar.
 
Chris Morris, managing director of Twickenham Experience, said: "These are exciting times as we see our venue develop to deliver an even better experience to delegates and hospitality guests. As we prepare to host the world’s finest rugby teams in September 2015, we are also preparing to host the finest event experiences at the stadium. The new developments bring a fresh feel to our spaces and create more opportunities for a range of events and enhanced technology infrastructure."
