Less than 2 weeks the Arena Christmas Event

By Berenice, Wednesday 23 November 2016

In less than 2 weeks, on Monday 5 December 2016, over 150 senior foodservice and hospitality professionals will gather at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel for a day of engagement, inspiration and education at Arena’s ever-popular Christmas event. Our keynote speaker is Kevin Watson, Managing Director, Amadeus. With Kevin at the helm, Amadeus has undergone a significant change of direction, and a successful business and cultural transformation. Today, it is one of the fastest growing venue and event caterers, with a fine reputation for delivering exceptional and creative customer experiences.

The Arena Christmas Event 2016 will give you the opportunity to discover the highs and lows that have shaped Amadeus over the past 40 years, the bold changes and strategies of Kevin’s five-year leadership – including the replacement of the entire senior team, its adventurous approach to food and business, and how you can be part of Amadeus’ exciting new phase of expansion and growth.

Don’t miss:

  • Amadeus’ distinctive evolution and expertise: including a passion for ‘food less ordinary’; the understanding that every venue, event and audience is different and demands bespoke food and service; a desire to break new ground; a ‘service that sells’ philosophy that gives consistent exemplary, interactive service, and maximises spend at every opportunity; and a belief in playing to your strengths.
  • ‘2016: A Turning Point’: industry experts Horizons present an exclusive review of foodservice and hospitality over the past 12 months and look ahead to the opportunities for growth in 2017.
  • Superb hospitality: featuring a drinks reception with sumptuous canapés and a delicious, bespoke three-course lunch created by the Jumeirah Carlton Tower’s executive chef Simon Young and his brigade, plus wines to match each course.
