The Richmond Hotel in Liverpool is gearing up to welcome the organising team of the World Corporate Games.

The Richmond

The Hatton Garden venue, which is Grade II Listed, is the Official Headquarters Hotel for the sports event which attracts corporate competitors from across the globe.

Independently run, The Richmond celebrated its first year in business in May, and is delighted to be playing a part in the international sporting event. It is also currently a host hotel for delegates visiting Liverpool as part of the International Festival for Business (IFB).

The World Corporate Games takes place in Liverpool from 26 to 29 June, with competitors travelling from as far afield as Israel, Cape Town and Istanbul.

Group Director Steven Hesketh, who is also Treasurer of Liverpool Hoteliers Association (LHA), commented:

“We are looking forward to welcoming the team from the World Corporate Games. We’ve worked closely with the Games team leading up to the event itself, and now The Richmond team are excited at the prospect of being the team hub.

“We were chosen by the World Corporate Games for our excellent facilities, customer service and our unique selling points as a Grade II Listed hotel. Liverpool has such a strong sporting heritage that we are sure the Games team and their competitors travelling from across the world will be delighted with what they find. We will ensure the team have a fantastic Liverpool experience.”

The Richmond team is also getting into the spirit of the games by taking part in the event’s World Corporate Cup of Soccer tournament, the preliminary rounds of which recently took place at Liverpool Football Club’s Anfield Stadium, as well as dragonboat racing.

Doug White, Global Partnerships Director at the World Corporate Games, commented:

“As soon as we visited The Richmond last year and met Steven and his experienced team, we knew it was the perfect destination hotel for us in 2014. We have since visited a number of times to host meetings and workshops.

“The Richmond Hotel is a truly striking building which has been transformed into a luxurious, stylish venue with excellent facilities to meet all our needs.”

The Richmond opened in May 2013 and features 152-bedrooms; R Bar & Brasserie; William & Kane function suite; and Florentyna’s private dining event space.
