Epsom Downs Racecourse is offering all delegates who attend a conference or meeting booked with the venue’s March Madness DDR a pair of free Investec Spring Meeting tickets for the raceday on Wednesday 24th April 2013.

Priced at £29 per person + VAT, the March Madness DDR has been launched in advance of spring’s Investec series to raise corporate awareness of the versatility of the racecourse as both a hospitality and meeting venue; the Investec Spring Meeting is a firm favourite in the social calendar, celebrating the end of winter and the start of the racing season.

The March Madness DDR is available for any new bookings made and taking place in March 2013 and based on a minimum of ten delegates. Included in the package is meeting room hire, free Wi-Fi and parking, audio-visual equipment, two servings of tea, coffee and biscuits, and a luncheon menu of the chef’s choice of seasonal favourites. Guests will be able to enjoy ‘filled mini Hovis loaves’, ‘seasonal soup’, ‘blue cheese & red onion tarts’, and a ‘selection of homemade mini pies and sausage rolls’.

Rupert Trevelyan, Regional Director – London, said: “Racecourses are continuing to emerge on companies’ radars as venues for both work and fun; this new DDR combines the two, as we want to encourage delegates to come back and experience the atmosphere at Epsom Downs on a raceday, and also reward companies for placing their business with us.”

Epsom Downs Racecourse offers a selection of conference and meeting rooms ranging from the 502m2 Blue Riband Room in the purpose-built Queens Stand conference centre to an assortment of private boxes accommodating more intimate meetings of up to 20 delegates theatre style or standing receptions for 30 guests. The Surrey racecourse is part of Jockey Club Venues, the conference and events arm of The Jockey Club and owner of 15 prestigious racecourses across the UK.
