Morningside Arena and Novotel Leicester have partnered for the next three years, an agreement which will showcase Novotel Leicester branding at the Arena.
The Morningside Arena is increasingly securing high-profile, international sports, entertainment, and TV events, which are attracting new visitors to the city of Leicester.
Recent events include the British Open Snooker, Boyle Sports Grand Prix Darts, Weber Cup, Magnificent 4 and Rahat Bollywood events, and the recent EasyLife concert, the Arena is looking forward to the visit of the World Boxing Champion Tyson Fury next month. This is in addition to the Arena being the home of the national basketball Club champions, the Leicester Riders.
Novotel Leicester is a modern and stylish four-star hotel, located a short distance from the arena and close to the city centre. The hotel offers a wide range of quality rooms, conference space and a contemporary restaurant and bar.
James Conaghan, General Manager of Novotel Leicester, is delighted to be working with the Arena and said “We have been very impressed with the wide range of high-profile events that the Morningside Arena is bringing to Leicester, which is helping to drive a lot of new visitors to the city;”
“We have exceptional facilities here at the Novotel Leicester, and it is great that we can provide a great experience for the performers, production and TV staff associated with these events, together with spectators, who are coming from around the country and overseas.”
“We are delighted to work in partnership with the Arena to provide all event visitors with a great experience.”
Morningside Arena Director, Kevin Routledge, is also excited about the partnership and said “We are looking to build the Arena’s reputation, as not only a much-needed community sports facility, but also a top sports and entertainment venue, working with major national and international promoters. Our partners require top class facilities for their staff and performers, and Novotel Leicester has more than met their expectations to date. Thus, formalising this partnership will be good for the city and the Arena.”
“We see great opportunities ahead, particularly with the new planned 1,200 metres square extension, and having a partner on board, Novotel Leicester, will make it possible for the Arena to develop further and continue to be a premium sports and entertainment venue recognised at a national level.”
