Unlike public tickets that are subject to a ballot process, the hospitality tickets have been available on a first come first serve basis since 15 March.

The most popular sports, as might be expected, have been athletics, rowing, and diving, with track cycling at the Velodrome, gymnastics, and beach volleyball at Horse Guards Parade following closely behind.

Equestrian, swimming, and basketball events have also been popular say Prestige, with tennis at the All England Tennis Club only just making it into the top ten, perhaps due to its proximity to Wimbledon - the two events being just 20 days apart.

Prestige will build temporary venues in the Olympic Park, Horse Guards Parade, Greenwich Park, Eton Dorney and in Weymouth for the 2012 Games. Each of the spaces will have it’s own design and theme.

It has also secured all 96 boxes at The O2 – which will be renamed the North Greenwich Arena – and will provide hospitality at the All England Tennis Club.

Prices range from £325 per person for a category C event, up to £4,500 per person for an opening or closing event.
