French to English translations [PRO] Marketing - Tourism & Travel / Hospitality suites at a sporting venue
French term or phrase:Table privative (par nombre pair)
In a marketing booklet advertising luxury hospitality suites at a well-known French sporting venue:
"Ø Une vue imprenable sur la pelouse
Ø Table privative (par nombre pair)"
What exactly is 'par nombre pair' getting at? I've tried translating it every which way and it just doesn't sound right. A private table for every two persons? Even numbers only? Help!
Come to think of it...I once saw a Dijon FC match in the 3rd division from one of their "executive boxes", not the same thing. (Incidentally I shook hands with the mayor, Rebsamen, Royal's campaign director, at the after-match reception).
oops hadn't seen it was a corporate hospitality deal. In that case yes, I understand. Anyway there is a flat fee - doesn't matter how many bottles of Bollinger they consume. CLearly I don't move in the same circles as Conor!!!
