Pulling out all the stops to impress your clients and help foment better, more trusting relationships, is something all businesses should be doing if they’re looking to stabilize and encourage future growth.

Hospitality events are just one of the ways businesses can do this, treating both local and international clients to unique and unforgettable days that can also go a long way in increasing brand value and developing brand awareness.

With the forthcoming Henley Regatta set to take place this summer, we take a look at why this world-famous rowing event might prove one of the best hospitality events to treat your clients with.

Quality Experience

As the henley regatta hospitality experience is synonymous with quality you can be sure that clients are near certain to have a great experience. From great food and drink to getting as close to the action on the Thames as possible in a number of great enclosures, even if you’re clients have never seen a boating event before they’re unlikely to forget this one.

Value for Money

With a variety of packages on offer across a wide range of prices, the value for money offered by the Henley hospitality experience rivals that of any other sporting event. With options to charter boats and cruise on the Thames itself, there are extra add-ons that can really help spice up the day without raising the cost of treating your clients too much.

Due to the regatta being a five-day event you also have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to planning the experience and heading to the regatta at a suitable time.

History of the Event

One of the best-known and most prestigious regattas in the world, the 176-year-old Henley Regatta is a sporting event that’s up there with the best of them in terms of glitz, glamour and excitement.

Featuring over 200 races hosting international Olympic rowers, there is plenty of action throughout each of the five days of the event.

Although there is not a specific dress code male attendees add to the level of exclusivity of the regatta by traditionally kitting out in lounge suits, blazers or flannels with shirt and tie underneath. Females, on their part, go with skirts and dresses down to the knee and usually opt for hats.

After Parties

Aside from the action on the water what’s most likely to wow a client are the numerous events and parties taking place around the event itself in its entirely luxurious setting.

After racing and sunset, Chinawhite turns into the ideal after party venue for guests, welcoming international DJ’s that draw crowds together to enjoy an even more unforgettable evening.


Another great reason to take clients to Henley is due to its accessibility. 35 miles west of London, 7 miles to the north-east of Reading, the location of the regatta is easy to reach via car or coach from the M4 motorway and also easily reachable via rail thanks to regular train services between Paddington and Henley.
