We have strong relationships with organisations, venues, and governing bodies such as the RFU and the MCC, who have rewarded us with long term contracts as Official Hospitality Agents.  We always look to build long term relationships with our clients who return to us month after month, year after year for their solutions across corporate hospitality, incentive trips, and events.

Our Hosts

At Engage, we roll out the red carpet and host large scale banquets and dinners for our clients that include a variety of guests and entertainment throughout. These glamourous occasions needs glamourous hosts and we use some of the best in TV.

She continues to rise to the top in her profession as high profile work on the UK NFL games, the Premier League and hosting regularly on Talksport has built up her profile.

Rugby

International Rugby is a brilliant opportunity to enjoy premium corporate hospitality and our Engage ICON facility at Twickenham, the home of English rugby has held a number of world-class players. Former England Captain Dylan Hartley has appeared at many of our events and is one of the most detailed and passionate story tellers in the sport. Dylan’s career was never dull as controversies featured throughout his international career, but what will never be forgotten is when he captained England to a Grand Slam win in 2016, an incredible and special achievement.

We also have the ability to secure hospitality at some of the major grounds in football, including The Emirates Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Old Trafford and more.

Creating partnerships

Hospitality experiences are an incredibly powerful way to strengthen your business relationships, allowing you informal time in a great environment so you can understand more about your customers, their needs, and learn how you can work better together. They provide an incredibly high return on investment (ROI) compared with other marketing channels and can be totally targeted to your clients and prospects.

Our events are also great incentives and offer a fantastic opportunity to invest in and reward your team, which will help drive stronger performances and aid retention. They can also be the perfect way to network and build new relationships, helping you to develop yourself professionally or drive growth in your business.

Whatever your aims, we’ll work in partnership to understand exactly what you need to get from the experience and work flexibly to deliver it.

We work with global sports stars on a regular basis at some of our other major events. The NBA and NFL International series will always attract sports stars from around the world to attend such as Antoine Greizmann and Alexander Lacazette. At the races we bring the likes of Derek Thompson to the Cheltenham Festival, Ascot and the Grand National.
