Breeders’ Cup Names QuintEvents as its Worldwide Exclusive Official Ticket, Hospitality and Travel Package Provider for the 2012 World Championships at Santa Anita
NEW YORK, NY (JUNE 7, 2012) -- Breeders’ Cup will introduce a full-scale travel/experience hospitality program for groups, individual fans and corporate clients for the 29th running of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, November 2-3, at Santa Anita Park. Breeders’ Cup Ltd. has named QuintEvents of Charlotte, NC, to develop and market the hotel, travel, tickets and amenities packages, which are available only from newly created, Breeders’ Cup Experiences.
As the Exclusive Official Ticket, Hospitality and Travel Package Provider, QuintEvents, will sell newly-created packages, bringing fans closer to the action and providing a turn-key program that includes seats in various locations throughout Santa Anita, fast access to the track, on-site hospitality, special paddock viewing, ground transportation, parking and other concierge services for Corporate and social groups.
Breeders’ Cup Experiences offers a selection of packages with options for ticket location and hotel choice near the track or in Beverly Hills. Once on-site, guests’ biggest decisions will be left to only their wagering selections for the races. Exclusive hospitality areas are a private oasis where guests can enjoy a gourmet buffet, soft beverages throughout the day and access to a private premium cash bar. Thoroughbred industry celebrity and/or jockeys will also be on hand for one-on-one meet and greets and autograph signings.
The Official Breeders’ Cup Experience packages are available now at www.quintevents.com. QuintEvents provides similar “Official” services to Churchill Downs®, The National Football League, The National Basketball Association, the ESSENCE Music Festival®, and Formula One™ Racing’s Paddock Club™.
“The Breeders’ Cup is one of just a handful of major events that attract worldwide attention for an entire sport, and this kind of access is packaged for convenience and value. A value-added travel package is a great way for fans and corporate clients coming to Southern California in November to further their enjoyment of the Breeders’ Cup.” said Breeders’ Cup President and CEO, Craig Fravel. “QuintEvents’ experience in Thoroughbred racing and with high-profile events of all kinds makes them an ideal partner for us.”
“Through our work with Churchill Downs® and the Kentucky Derby®, we understand the sport and its fans. Thoroughbred racing is best experienced with a group, both large and small. Block seating and exclusive hospitality areas make it easy for those groups to interact throughout the day,” offered Brian Learst, C.E.O. of QuintEvents. “These kinds of unique experiences at major events are our specialty and we hope to play a role in giving horse racing enthusiasts’ easy access to a unique and memorable experience at the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.”
The program also provides fans with a secure buying platform, rather than ticket brokers or secondary market channels that can be risky and uncertain. All ticket and hospitality packages come direct from the Breeders’ Cup with QuintEvents as the Exclusive Official Ticket, Hospitality and Travel Package Provider marketing and fulfilling the travel/experience packages.
