Arena Events

Our networking events are the backbone of Arena.

Rapid technological advancements have certainly changed the way we do business, but relationships and physical interaction continue to be vital for success.  Our events encourage and empower face-to-face meetings and this is why Arena continues to thrive as a relevant and valuable foodservice and hospitality industry asset.

With eight events throughout the year, which are always fully subscribed, attendees benefit from essential time away from the office to catch up with old associates, make new acquaintances, get up to date with the latest news and developments, discuss and share ideas, and even instigate business deals.

The guest list is always available to view prior to each event and we are always able to facilitate introductions on the day.

Inspirational guest speakers update and educate on current issues, offering a new perspective and approach, and something for the audience to really think about.
