It’s the year of the tournament, Rugby World Cup 2019™; the third largest sporting event in the world is coming to Asia for the very first time. As well as this, a new enhanced spectating experience is venturing to the Japanese market in the form of sports hospitality. STH Japan, who are responsible for bringing the Official Hospitality programme to life are ahead of schedule in their efforts to be a part of delivering “one of the most popular World Cups ever in terms of ticket demand”.*

Many guests attending Rugby World Cup through the Official Hospitality programme will be entertaining clients and business partners. Some guests will simply be there to enjoy the luxurious comforts and celebrity guests of the hospitality area with their friends and family. With that in mind we have come up with four tips  to ensure you make the most of this ‘once in a lifetime’ experience.

1. Dress appropriately

Attending a world class sports hospitality event comes with a dress code. If you are hosting a group of people, make sure all your guests are aware of the details to ensure they are as comfortable as they can be on the day.

Do your research and know your guests. The hospitality programme has a wide and varied menu catering to all dietary requirements. Make sure you have submitted your requests in the Customer Centre. If you haven’t created your account yet, you can do so here.

3. Plan your day

Be organised and aware of the event itinerary and logistics. Make sure you have thoroughly checked your transport options for getting to and from the venue. Take note of the hospitality venue location and what time the event kicks off.

4. Make the most of the event 

Make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity. If you are hosting guests, research their organisation and be prepared with a knowledge of their industry and latest news. If you are being entertained, enjoy the experience and be proactive in striking up conversations, you are all there to build stronger relationships. Discover common interests and keep the conversation light and friendly.
