About On Side Hospitality

We are an official hospitality agent offering bespoke packages at the biggest sports and music occasions to hundreds of companies across the UK. We pride ourselves in providing fantastic service to our clients, with a view to building long term relationships with them. For us this means not only exclusively offering official packages but being on your side from start to finish. With your own dedicated account manager to guide you through the booking process, and our operations team supporting you in the run up to the event and on the day itself, we believe it’s our personalised service that keeps our clients coming back.

Our aim is to build our client base by successfully looking after each and every client at all of our events they attend. Whether it’s a personal booking for you and your partner or a large corporate party, we want to ensure you feel that we’ve gone the extra mile to not only impress you but make your guests feel special too. We understand people have choices and we’d like to be your first choice for all your hospitality needs.
