COVID-19 Update for Events at Ascot Racecourse

Updated on 14 Oct 2020

As a venue, Ascot is as versatile as it is inspirational. We are proud to provide a safe environment for any event, guaranteeing an abundance of flexible space in which to host a vast array of business and social occasions while abiding by social distancing regulations and other government guidelines.

We are confident that all guests visiting Ascot will feel safe and comfortable in the enjoyment of their event experience.

Ascot Racecourse, known for bringing Royal Ascot at Home live to millions of people when racing behind closed doors, has the ability to host a range of different types of events which - whether on-site, virtual or a hybrid blend – are backed by the highest levels of IT and AV. We are delighted to announce the build of the 'Live Stage', this green screen studio has been created with the Events at Ascot team’s on-site AV partner ITM to strengthen the existing virtual and hybrid solutions on-site.

On 26th September, the world-famous venue played host to Historics Auction for its major open-to-public autumn classic car sale, with strict COVID-secure measures in place. The extensive grounds provided the elegant backdrop to a fine and varied consignment of 190 classics spanning nine decades and including classic examples from 47 different brands.

About Events at Ascot Racecourse

When searching for an event space to host a conference or exhibition, event planners often find themselves searching for that holy grail of a venue which manages to be both somewhere that guests will be excited to visit, but also a space which has all of the necessary facilities, technical equipment and amenities that you need.

Step forward Ascot Racecourse, which may be most famous for the annual Royal Ascot Festival, but also doubles as a state-of-the-art conference, exhibitions, meetings and entertainment venue. Located in Berkshire, Ascot is less than an hour from London by train and just 30 minutes journey from Heathrow airport for delegates coming in from overseas. The venue boasts more than 300 meeting and conference rooms, which vary in size and can accommodate a variety of layouts - from boardroom to cabaret, or dinner to theatre style. Event planners can choose between traditional or contemporary spaces, which can all be personalised and amended to the specific requirements of each event planner.

Ascot can also cater to a range of party sizes, with the venue able to accommodate all manner of events, ranging from a boardroom meeting for just 10 to a large-scale conference or exhibition welcoming up to 8,000 guests. For consumer and B2B events, such as trade fairs, Ascot’s gorgeous Grandstand Galleria is the place to hire. It comes complete with a 27m high atrium and boasts over 4,000 square metres of flexible exhibition space, offering a blank canvas for individual trader stalls, product demonstrations or keynote speeches.

Whether you are planning an intimate meeting, large conference with requirements for presentations, dining and break-out rooms, or a complex exhibition, Ascot’s in-built sense of occasion is backed up by its facilities, flexibility and up-to-the-minute technologies to meet and exceed your expectations. The versatility of Ascot as an events space is its unique selling point, while the venue’s famous reputation and firm place in sporting history will make it an exciting prospect to any delegates, consumers or visitors.
