Keith Prowse sets off the jungle drums for corporate hospitality
Imaginative equatorial look designed for 2011’s topscale hospitality offering
Keith Prowse, the official Cartier International Polo hospitality provider , is drawing on the influences of a Kenyan Colonial Estate for 2011’s VIP event of the year.
The upscale corporate hospitality facilities will be sympathetically styled inline with the 40’s Rift Valley heyday complete with a dramatic structure more used to being set overviewing Kenya’s sweeping plains.
Taking place on Sunday 24th July at Guards Polo Club, Cartier International Day is renowned as the climax to the English social season, attracting a high-profile crowd from FTSE-100 business leaders to the cream of the celebrity set. Keith Prowse will introduce a refreshed vibrancy at Guards using drums, masks and animal prints to create a bold equatorial edge to the central marquee, a unique sustainable bamboo structure.
Guests will be greeted by a champagne and canapé reception at the Smith’s Lawn Enclosure, the epicentre of VIP activity at Guards. The vivid alfresco ambience associated with Cartier International Polo will be typified by an outdoor bar, sun-basked pool and tepee tents for break out groups. A relaxation zone will allow guests to take in the surroundings on ultra-comfortable low level seating while expert ‘chillers’ offering head and neck massage.
Attentive service levels and an unrivalled dining experience will characterise Keith Prowse’s 2011 offering. An African-inspired menu will take centre stage during a three-course summer lunch in the Chukkas Suites and Chukkas Restaurant.
North/South Grandstand seats are automatically reserved for large corporate groups and VIP parties in the Chukkas Suites and smaller groups in the Chukkas Restaurant. The gallery will provide prime viewing points over the field as the action unfolds in the Golden Jubilee Cup and Coronation Cup.
Ted Walker, head of marketing at Keith Prowse said: “We look forward to welcoming the country’s financial figureheads, as well as the glitterati better known to the public eye, to this year’s event. Our 2011 theme promises represents the flamboyant nature of Cartier International Day, and reflects its reputation as the place to see and be seen.”
