Businesses which hire a room, suite or executive box for their corporate event at Newcastle United’s St James’ Park stadium, between January and March, are being given the opportunity to Eat their Suite, in a food and drink bonanza.

The award-winning Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events team, which manages catering and events at the stadium, has promised to give event bookers free food and drink to the same value as their room hire rate.

The Eat Your Suite deal means that clients who book the venue’s flagship Sir Bobby Robson Suite, for example, at a full day room hire rate of £450, will receive the same amount to spend on food and beverages.

“We’ve had a fantastic year and thought, what better way to get 2016 off to a cracking start than by giving our corporate guests one of our best offers ever,” said Samantha Doyle, area sales manager for Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events at St James’ Park.

“The Eat Your Suite offer means that you are getting a great deal, whether you hire one of our large function spaces or one of our smaller meeting rooms – and its simplicity will help event organisers plan and budget for their event more easily.”

The offer follows a successful year for the Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events team at St James’ Park.

Not only were they named Operations Team of the Year at The Stadium Events and Hospitality Awards 2015, but they also scooped gold in the Access for All category at the prestigious North East Tourism Awards 2015.

The awards were set up to highlight the regional visitor economy, which is worth an estimated £3.9bn and employs more than 55,000 people in the North East and the stadium was recognised for the quality and range of facilities it provides for elderly and disabled visitors.
