UK’s No.1 hospitality provider highlights the ‘must-attend’ events for a quintessential summer

 Keith Prowse is preparing for 2014’s summer season with food tastings and launch events at some of its top venues ahead of major match days and tournaments.

 The UK’s leading hospitality supplier has been showcasing the 2014 season’s new menus, themes and first-class service levels at the Gatsby Club, Aegon Championships and Kia Oval launch events.

Keith Prowse has more official contracts than any other corporate hospitality supplier and, with the introduction of innovative hospitality offerings, has adapted to fit the changing face of entertaining. Packages such as ‘Hybrid’ hospitality offers at the Aegon Championships have already contributed to an increase in web traffic of 34.5% (1 March 2014 – 15 April 2014) in comparison to the same period last year.

With more than 200 years of experience, Keith Prowse continues to research and develop its offering to ensure it meets the changing needs of its guests. By working with world-class chefs such as Michelin-starred Albert Roux OBE and providing bona fide seats, Keith Prowse ensures guests have an unforgettable and unique experience.

Megan Collins, marketing manager at Keith Prowse said: “We are excited to be at the forefront of creating innovative experiences and we’ve launched a range of fantastic new packages tailored to the evolving market place. Launch parties and tastings are a great way to introduce our new concepts and we are hosting a range of events to showcase what’s on offer in 2014.”

Keith Prowse has also launched its hashtag for the summer season; #CloserToTheAction. #CloserToTheAction underpins key messages which highlight the premise of offering unrivalled packages, site lines and relationships with the sporting rights holders.
