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...

The team, which now boasts over 50 members of staff, has already laundered 154,637 sheets, pulled 18,500 pints of beer and served up more than 2,900 Gin & Tonics and 1,600 of its delicious signature Mobley Burgers.

Its a wedding proposal and he asks the inevitable big question, ‘will you marry me?’ (Fortunately it’s a yes!) and there’s a cheer from the surrounding tables. So, with the New Year comes optimism for a better 2018 and a fond farewell to 2017. Valentine’s Day (14th February) is just around the corner.
