Every year over 300,000 people visit Royal Ascot which makes this iconic event Europe’s best attended race meeting.
Royal Ascot has a long association with royalty and the royal procession along the race course is a highlight of the race days.
In 2017 this remarkable event is taking place between the 20th and 24th June and the Queen, her family and their invited guests will be keen to enjoy the excellent racing and to watch the fashionistas and the fashion faux pas from their unrivalled spot.
Royal Ascot inspires images of sporting excellence, society, extravagance and prestige.
Royal Ascot hospitality will ensure that you experience more than racing, you’ll have a special day or week that will be unforgettable for all the right reasons. Your horses may even win races.
The Ascot Racecourse was founded in 1711 by Queen Anne. The first race had a purse of 100 guineas and was called “Her Majesty’s Plate.”
Unlike Royal Ascot, this race was held on the 11 August 1711 and just seven horses competed and they carried a 76kg/12 stone weight as they raced.
Today, Royal Ascot is renowned worldwide and past winners have become household names. Rather than 100 guineas the event has a prize money pot of £6.58 million and hosts six races each day, of which several are Group One races.
From the Queen Anne Stakes to the Gold Cup to the Diamond Jubilee Stakes each day has its own special race which every jockey wants to win.
To match the excellent sport, corporate entertaining spaces with sports hospitality companies and VIP packages are available through professional firms like DTB Sports and Events who know Royal Ascot and what clients wish for.
The networking opportunities and excellent facilities at Royal Ascot are well known and hospitality companies ranges of perks could show a business contact, client or partner exactly how much you respect them and communicate your gratitude. It certainly beats a business lunch.
For a private party, you’ll mingle with fellow guests in the height of luxury in exclusive areas. That’s not a bad way to spend the day, is it?
Throughout Royal Ascot week there are three enclosures of which the Royal Enclosure is the most prestigious and the dress code is strictly morning dress for men and formal day wear for women. It is for royalty, members and invitation only guests.
Next, there’s the Queen Anne Enclosure, formerly the Grandstand Enclosure, here there is a slightly more relaxed dress code. The races, pre-parade, parade ring, runners and riders can be seen perfectly from this enclosure.
The Windsor Enclosure, formerly the Silver Ring, offers excellent views of race finishes and the royal party as they arrive and leave their carriages. This is arguably the loudest and most vibrant enclosure.
You deserve to reward yourself and others for hard work, achievement and special occasions.
