If you decide to treat a business associate, management team, directors or high achievers to a sports event experience as a way of expressing gratitude, reinforcing loyalty or increasing brand awareness then please remember to avoid DIY hospitality.
Managing the many elements of a corporate hospitality event in-house is time consuming, often escalates the costs and stress levels. On the day enjoyment is hampered and this impacts on the positive benefits and return on investment of using corporate hospitality as a marketing tool.
DIY hospitality gets misses out on so much:
The best seats available in the venue
Dining that suits all guests
Meeting sporting heroes
Keeping within budget
Reserved parking spaces
Access to an exclusive area that is warm and dry, in the event of rain.
Individual programmes, souvenirs, itineraries, radios and access to TV screens
The ability to execute targeted marketing
Would you go to a restaurant and cook yourself? No, so why aim to co-ordinate the factors of corporate hospitality when there is an experienced service provider on hand?
