28th March 2014 - London’s Jockey Club Venues are gearing up for a summer of sunshine with the launch of a Summer Splendour Offer targeting meetings and events held at the racecourses.

Comprising of Epsom Downs, Sandown Park and Kempton Park the racecourses are nestled amidst rolling countryside and have direct access to the capital’s mainline stations along with quick access to major A roads. Capitalising on their stunning views and open spaces the racecourses are encouraging delegates to leave the confines of their meeting rooms and embrace fresh air thinking.  For events taking place at the height of the summer, June, July and August, event planners can choose a variety of options and bring a taste of the sunshine to brighten up their employee and client events:

  • For meetings and conference, organisers can opt for a fruit laden punch and Häagen-Dazs ice cream at afternoon tea break or if networking is the aim of the event a complimentary Pimms reception can be organised to round off the meeting.
  • Event organisers looking to entertain and rewards employees or clients, summer BBQ packages can be organised either as standalone events or as part of the conference day.  Drawing on local suppliers and fresh produce BBQs can be organised and menus created for every palate and budget. 

London’s Jockey Club Venues have hosted many high profile conferences, events and exhibitions and have been recognised by Exhibition News for their service levels and product offerings. The racecourses are part of Jockey Club Venues, a collection of 15 of some of the UK’s most iconic racing venues to specifically service the corporate, association and private meeting and event sector.
