F1 Signs Up QuintEvents As Official Provider For Circuit's Paddock Club
U.S.-based hospitality agency QuintEvents has been hired by F1 to be the official provider of the paddock club. The agency, which currently works with the NFL, NBA, Churchill Downs and others, will be marketing and selling packages in the exclusive area for F1 races. All Sport, which is owned by F1, produces the event and developed the paddock club. It will continue to sell the hospitality packages to teams and sponsors, but QuintEvents will sell packages to corporations and individuals not affiliated with the sport. QuintEvents CEO Brian Learst said, "You've got great views of the pit action. You get tours of the pit area on race day. It's a very exclusive area." In addition to being hired by F1, QuintEvents was hired by the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, to be the official hospitality provider for all its racing events. Paddock club tickets for the F1 race scheduled to take place at the Circuit of Americas will cost $4,600 for three days.
