Malaysia base for Arena Group

The Arena Group has acquired Malaysia-based Asia Tent International, which substantially enhances the company’s logistical capabilities, storage facilities, personnel and stock quota for the delivery of temporary event structures throughout Asia. Arena Group CEO Greg Lawless (pictured left) said:

This is a strategic first step into growing the Arena Group’s client base throughout Asia. We now have the capacity to offer event organisers across all areas of the Middle and Far East easier access to independent specialist knowledge, and greatly improved logistics. This is a vital part of our vision to be a truly global event services supplier.

Arena Group’s current clients in Asia include the CIMB Classic and Sime Darby LPGA in Malaysia, the Formula 1 and HSBC LPGA in Singapore, and Ballantine’s Golf Championships in South Korea. Asia Tent International had provided event structures for the Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur, Athens Olympics and Doha Asian Games.

Arena Group’s Malaysian operations will be carried out by the newly created Asia Tents Arena Sdn. Bhd. and headed by Arena Group Middle East and Asia CEO Paul Berger (pictured right), who said:

Malaysia will serve as a springboard for the Arena Group to deliver new capabilities and more comprehensive event infrastructure services across Asia. We look forward to enhancing our relationships with existing clients and expanding our services into new markets.
