Are your conference and events facilities letting the side down?

Your VIP boxes, conference facilities, meeting rooms, bars and restaurants bring in huge amounts of revenue so it is essential that they are fitted out to make your guests feel at home. Facilities that have seen better days or rooms not used to their full potential are costing your venue and your club. You can count on AJ Products for meeting room and conference furniture that will provide a functional space for visitors to use while ensuring your facilities look smart and modern.
Meetings
Whether for boardroom meetings, important client meetings or confidential interviews, offsite meeting rooms are in high demand. Many sports stadiums are in a position to meet this demand, but are your facilities going to make the right impression? The size of the venue will affect the number and size of rooms you can offer but, regardless of your capacity, you should look to offer a variety of rooms to accommodate different requirements. Provide a few larger suites to cater for board meetings; these ought to house a large, traditional meeting table surrounded by conference room chairs with narrow tables around the side of the room for refreshments. Pitch-side executive boxes are ideal for use as small meeting rooms; consider armchairs and sofas for a more casual atmosphere alongside fliptop tables and stackable meeting chairs that can be deployed as needed. AJ Products have meeting room furniture that will suit any client: from soft seating and breakout furniture to traditional boardroom tables, we will help you create the spaces you need. The latest addition to our range is a state-of-the-art, standing meeting table, which provides a simple-to-operate sit-stand solution that allows you to adjust the height at the push of a button, giving guests the flexibility to choose whether to sit or stand. Not only does this make it adaptable to almost any type of meeting, it also promotes a healthier lifestyle, making it an ideal choice for sports facilities!
Conferences
Dedicated conference spaces require furniture that can be adapted to the needs of the client. It must be smart and comfortable but also easy to rearrange. Large auditoriums may have built-in seating, but smaller facilities should turn to linkable conference chairs. These can be set up in rows as and when required with the legroom between them dictated by the number of people attending. Once the conference is over, the chairs can be stacked and moved out of the way easily using a chair trolley. Another smart choice is folding tables, which can be used by conference presenters for panel discussions or set up at the side of the room for catering purposes. They are easy to move and transport and do not take up much room in storage. By fitting out your conference facilities with stackable and foldable furniture, the layout can be changed to suit any purpose: lectures, training sessions, talks and more.
Dining
Corporate entertainment, Christmas parties and summer events are big money for any large venue. Create an atmosphere that puts guests in the party spirit with tasteful, modern dining furniture. From classic banquet chairs and cosy booth seating to colourful acrylic chairs, AJ Products will help you create unique entertainment spaces: formal dining rooms, relaxed lounges, laid-back cafés and lively bars.

Johnsons Premier mixtures give Liberty Stadium the edge with renovation

Liberty Stadium Swansea, the premier sports venue in South West Wales, is home to Swansea City Football Club and the Ospreys regional rugby team.  Although being sceptical, Head Groundsman Dan Kirton, made the switch to Johnsons Sports Seed in 2015 and now admits that it would take “something seriously special” to make them use anything else! Between Johnsons Premier Pitch & J 4Turf mixtures, the team have achieved fantastic year-round results year on year.
“We had heard and read so many good things about the range that for our renovations in 2015 we gave it a go” explains Dan. As a multi-sport venue, Dan, and his team of three, face a variety of challenges when it comes to managing the pitch. “We have on average 30 football and 20 rugby games a season, with sometimes just a single day turnaround between matches. Renovation can also be hectic – the concert schedule will determine how long we have to get the pitch match fit. To stand any chance of good results we need mixtures that germinate quickly.”
Because of their unique requirements, DLF’s Ian Barnett suggested using a combination of Johnsons
J Premier Pitch during summer, and for the colder months, Johnsons J 4Turf. “If we have a rugby game on the Friday night, we’ll clean the pitch up and put J Premier Pitch down and by the following week we’re getting germination – you can’t ask for better than that!”. J Premier Pitch is the UK’s No.1 sports turf renovation mixture, containing Europe’s highest rated cultivars to deliver a sward with exceptional wear tolerance, density and rapid recovery under heavy wear. J 4Turf tetraploid rye ensures rapid establishment even under low soil temperatures making it ideal for autumn and winter overseeding.

“This year we have a concert on the 7th July giving us just three weeks for renovation before the first game of the new season. If we have any chance of getting the seed through in time we’ll definitely be continuing with our Johnsons Seed programme; it’s easily the best seed we’ve ever used and, backed up with support and advice from Ian, means we haven’t looked back since.”


 

INFINICUT® helps The Magpies green footprint, without compromising quality of cut

St James Park has been a home to football in Newcastle since 1880. In that time the stadium, as well as the teams playing there, have gone through a number of transformations. Overseeing the club properties for the last 17 years has been Facilities Manager Eddie Rutherford, who in 2017 upgraded the fleet of stadium pitch mowers to include three 34” Cub Cadet INFINICUT® machines. Although renowned for their green credentials, it was ultimately the superior quality of cut that saw the mowers become the most recent additions to ‘The Magpies’.
“I’d heard and read a lot about the Cub Cadet INFINICUT® mowers in the trade magazines so got in touch with Vinny Tarbox for a demonstration, and straight from the off we weren’t disappointed” explains Eddie.  Over the last 5 years, Eddie has been driving a campaign to improve the green footprint of the club, which has seen lots of improvements around the stadium. “We’re running the mowers purely on battery power which, more than just delivering cost savings, means we’re running on clean, green energy compared to petrol alternatives - battery power seems to be the way forward for the industry.”
In addition to putting a big tick in the ‘environmentally friendly’ box, the quality of cut produced sealed the deal. “It was important for us to invest in machines that deliver the best and with the Cub Cadet INFINICUT® the cut you get is second to none.” The unique design and its adaptability to perform on any grass surface makes the INFINICUT® the most technologically advanced mower available to turf managers in the last 40 years. With a dynamic return floating head, variable cut rate, and flexible setup, the INFINICUT®, together with ATT SMARTCut™ cassette, ensures a healthy turf and provides precise adjustment to deliver an exacting quality of cut.
Final word from Eddie, “Compared to the results we were getting from the previous mowers, the guys have noticed an increase in the quality of cut and finish by at least 25%. It’s when you think about all the years there have been lawnmowers, all performing at a similar level, then this one comes along and it’s that much different – it really is impressive.”
