The conference and banqueting team at the Proact Stadium has been nominated for the Directors Choice Award in the Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards 2017.
The awards, sponsored by Carlsberg, will take place in the new main stand at Anfield, home to Liverpool FC, on Thursday, June 1. Around 400 guests will experience a fine dining four-course menu and awards ceremony.
The prestigious event aims to recognise the efforts and dedication shown by the catering, conference and events teams at every football and rugby stadium across the UK.
The Directors Choice Award - sponsored by FC Business - is voted for by directors at each club. They are asked to nominate the club where they had the best away experience when travelling with their team. They are specifically asked to consider the welcome, service and catering when casting their votes.
Stadium Experience chair person Collette Salmon, from Liverpool Football Club, commented: “Stadium teams work tirelessly, striving to bring excellence in their venues for both matchday hospitality and non-matchday events.
“These awards aim to recognise and celebrate all of this hard work and commitment. Congratulations and best of luck to all of this year’s award nominees – we look forward to announcing the results here at Anfield on June 1st!”
Chesterfield director & company secretary Ashley Carson said: “The staff try very hard on a matchday to welcome our visiting directors and I believe we offer them amazing hospitality.
“I would like to congratulate all the team in conference and banqueting and whether or not we win the award, the recognition alone is to be celebrated.”
