Unique Venues of Manchester finalists at CHS Awards 2018

Proud Parent The other day my son handed me an envelope saying, “Dad, you need to read this”. Firstly surprise and fear, followed by feelings of apprehension, concern and curiosity all hit my mind like a drumstick beating a drum, whilst desperately trying to hide any emotions until I knew what was going on. I tentatively read through what had been handed to me. Gradually the concern and apprehension faded, to be replaced by relief with a side of excitement, the surprise was still lingering, and finally everything was replaced by a chest thumping proudness! He had written a short essay at school that was entered into a competition and been shortlisted to be published in a book, and he needed me to sign the consent slip! Whilst not quite to the same extent, I still felt that same parental proudness following the announcement of the finalists for the CHS Awards 2018, which were made following another brilliant and successful #CHSRocks show!

Sponsorship Award Success for Hilton and Lancashire Cricket

Sponsorship Award Success for Hilton and Lancashire Cricket

SPONSORSHIP AWARD SUCCESS FOR HILTON AND LANCASHIRE CRICKET Hilton and Lancashire Cricket Club are delighted to have been named ‘Sport Sponsorship of the Year’, at the 2018 UK Sponsorship Awards. The accolade celebrates the ‘Best Beds in the House’ activation, which enabled guests to watch Lancashire Cricket pitch-side, from the comfort of a Hilton Garden Inn bed – with a complimentary private bar and room service included! The partnership was shortlisted with the likes of Cadburys, the Premier League, Mastercard, Stella Artois and NatWest, before ultimately being crowned winners. Launched at the Lancashire vs Yorkshire T20 Blast fixture, the ‘Best Beds in the House’ concept was to drive awareness of the new hotel at Emirates Old Trafford in 2017, as well as showcase Hilton Garden Inn’s bright hearted hospitality, as they sought to further launch their brand into the UK market. The activation area consisted of a terrace space with four Hilton standard king size beds on show for all to see within the ground, as well as those watching live on national television, throughout key fixtures during the season. Fans who entered the ground were able to take part in social media competition with Hilton, for the chance to win access to the exclusive area. Both partners were determined to engage with fans in the stadium, plus enhancing their experience on a cricket match day, as well as those watching the live broadcast matches on Sky TV – creating a total television reach of over 4.5million. The beds also achieved national press coverage, including The Guardian and The Telegraph, reaching a combined readership of over 550,000. Commenting on...
