As one of the most watched tennis tournaments in the world, Wimbledon, the most exclusive tennis tournament is also the oldest of its kind. It has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877. The annual tournament takes place over two weeks in late June and early July, culminating with the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Singles Final, scheduled respectively for the second Saturday and Sunday. Every year the venue hosts five major events, as well as four junior events and three invitational events. It is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, the other three Majors being the Australian Open, French Open and US Open. By contrast, Wimbledon is the only Major still played on grass, the game’s original surface. Wimbledon traditions are widely known and include a strict dress code for competitors, as well as the eating of strawberries and cream by the spectators, and its Royal patronage. Another unique concept is that there are no corporate logos, branding, or advertising allowed on any of the tennis courts.
Wimbledon typically has very high attendance, and is an event not to be missed! This year, Wimbledon promises to deliver no less with attendees expected from all corners of the world. One Concierge is proud to provide clients with an unsurpassed range of concierge, hospitality and lifestyle management services for those attending Wimbledon.
The broadcast of the Golden Globe Awards, telecast to 167 countries worldwide, generally ranks as the third most-watched awards show each year, behind only the Oscars and the Grammy Awards. Until Ricky Gervais hosted the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards Ceremony in 2010, the award ceremony was one of two major Hollywood award ceremonies (the other being the Screen Actors Guild Awards) that did not have a regular host; every year a different presenter introduced the ceremony at the beginning of the broadcast. Gervais returned to host the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards in 2011 and has now hosted the show four times. The 75th Golden Globes show will welcome some of the most influential individuals that the film industry has to offer. With hundreds of celebrities expected from around the world, this is one event not to be missed, and One Concierge is proud to offer a host of concierge and lifestyle management solutions for those attending the Golden Globe Awards.
