New conference product for Kempton Park

Kempton Park Racecourse, which has re-opened following an £18.8m conversion into an All Weather Track, has launched a new and expanded range of raceday products for the conference, incentive and exhibition market, starting at just £75 excluding VAT. Fully inclusive, these packages allow for delegates to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the racecourse. With over 50 racing fixtures scheduled for 2006 and over 100 in subsequent years, there are also plenty of opportunities for organisations to promote themselves by sponsoring a race. “Our aim is to provide event organisers and agents a way in which they can offer their clients the chance to mix business with pleasure in a relaxed atmosphere, which is more likely to leave a lasting impression,” said Kempton Park Racecourse commercial manager Jo Watts. Conference products start from £75 per head, including the hire of a private room with a balcony on the winning line, dedicated event manager, race cards, entry badges, behind-the-scenes tour of the racecourse, members car parking, refreshments on arrival, conference stationery and equipment, mineral water and buffet with coffee and mints. “As well as providing delegates with a memorable day of racing, one of the benefits of holding an event at Kempton Park is the opportunity for a company to use it as a relatively low-cost marketing platform by sponsoring a race,” said Watts. “A great deal of prestige is attached to seeing your name in the race title, which will then also be listed in the national and racing press.”
