Here at the World Headquarters of the Corporate Games we hope you have all truly recovered from the packed Games weekend. We also hope that you are continuing to incorporate sport into your active and busy lifestyles. Now that the UK Corporate Games – Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire 2015 is over, we are able to look back on the weekend….
It is clear to see that the Games weekend was a resounding success, as business’ from across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire seized the opportunity to showcase their facilities and promote their businesses-hopefully you enjoyed what you found there. What is more the Games was instrumental in helping Stoke secure European City of Sport Status for 2016 which is a great reward for the people of the area.
John Swanson, Vice President of ACES Europe and leader of the delegation said
“Our visit took place during the hosting of the UK Corporate Games and it was truly fantastic to see happy people all over the city competing in a huge range of activities from netball to Dragon boat racing and events such as these are great for encouraging participation, showcasing the city and bringing enormous financial benefits.
We are sure that Stoke on Trent will be a great European city of Sport and we look forward to their celebrations”
Thank you to everyone that participated though this year and thanks also to the hundreds of people that took the time to share their views and feedback on the Games as we are consistently striving to make improvements for you.
