Central to our success are the people who drive our business forward.  Arena International employees are ambitious, visionary and passionate about our success.  Arena International is run by a dynamic, solutions focused and dedicated team of individuals.

All of Arena International’s events are designed to help senior business people do business by:

  • connecting you with leading business minds
  • providing direct access to those with the most relevant, cutting-edge information, solutions and latest opportunities
  • facilitating the rapid creation of new networks of contacts and personal connections

The foundation of each conference is extensive, up-to-the-moment research.

Dedicated teams are constantly out in the markets, interviewing 100s of business leaders every month.
Thus we identify the pioneering case studies, innovative solutions and up-to-the-minute discussion topics that comprise programmes of wholly unbiased integrity. From the strategic to the technical, from the controversial to the challenging, from the practical to the inspirational, conferences are tailor-made to address those issues most critical to each industry we serve.

We are acutely aware, especially these days, that time and money are scarce resources and must be put to maximum effect.  As such we are wholly committed to providing the highest possible value for all of our participants.

Each Arena International Forum provides an extensive three days of industry discussion and learning amongst C-level decision makers and other leading industry figures. This presents a unique opportunity to discuss the major issues affecting your business with your peers and colleagues through extensive networking and face to face meetings. You will be able to initiate ideas with innovative new suppliers providing solutions to your problems. This is all supported by a series of informative seminars and discussion panels designed to provide intelligent insight into the future of the industry.

Each Forum is attended by key buyers and suppliers, who are personally invited to attend based on the influence they hold in the industry.The buyers are contacted and vetted to ensure that they are central to strategic procurement decision-making. In addition, an assessment of their business objectives and needs is compiled. Based upon the strategic needs of the buyers, Arena International invites senior executives from leading supplier companies offering solutions to the challenges faced by companies in the industry.

Arena International hosts a prestigious annual awards ceremony to celebrate the international architecture community. The LEAF Awards recognise the architects who are designing the buildings and solutions that are setting the benchmark for the international architectural community. Previous winners have included the likes of Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield, SOM, Steven Holl and Terry Farrell.

2012 sees the advent of a new set of awards linked to each of the Arena International Forums, these awards ceremonies will recognise the successes and innovations from the leading players and will be your chance to vote on those that you think have changed the industry for the better.

Every year Arena’s events attract many thousands of senior level decision makers and executives shaping their respective industries.

We have been running events for 15 years and have direct access to a database of more than 4 million international business people worldwide. We have an unrivalled network of strategic partnerships with many dozens of trade magazines, websites and associations.

This, combined with the ongoing, in-depth market research which shapes our cutting edge event programmes, means that any investment on your part is low risk.

In-depth research = market-leading event agenda

Market-leading event agenda + world class marketing = high turnout of directly relevant delegates leading to demonstrable ROI

These are the key reasons why so many of our clients return year after year.

These are also the reasons why Arena is truly unique amongst events companies in 2010 in continuing to grow and expand our business and portfolio in comparison with previous years.

Sponsoring or exhibiting at an Arena event is clearly a very special opportunity and one that the following leading players have found very useful.

Below are just some of the many ways in which you can get involved:

  • A highly-prized presentation slot in the programme. These are strictly limited in order to guarantee the impartiality of the overall agenda and the buyer/seller ratio, and, as such, offer an immensely powerful platform from which to demonstrate your organisation’s knowledge and abilities
  • Chairmanship of a session – align yourself with industry experts and display intellectual ownership of key topics
  • Contribution to a panel discussion – engage in cutting-edge debate with market leaders
  • Hosting networking events – breakfasts, lunches, dinners and beyond. Identify your most valued targets and prospects and then control the opportunity to rub shoulders directly with them.
  • Facilitated one-to-one meetings – innovative ways in which you share information and explore opportunities for collaboration with key practitioners
  • Exhibition stand – demonstrate your organisation’s services and products in informal meetings with delegates in the main networking area of the event
  • Branding – throughout the event to achieve stand-out from your competitors, and throughout the extensive print and online marketing campaign of the event raising your brand awareness way beyond those executives attending the event itself

The scope for leveraging our events in order to grow your business goes far beyond these options.
