Arena Structures has promised a clubhouse feel to the hospitality
village at this year's Open Championship, golf's most historic event.
The temporary structure specialists will create a village to cater for
the thousands of corporate guests expected to attend the 138th Open,
which takes place at Turnberry in Scotland from July 16th to 19th.
"This is the first year of us operating the entire contract and we
wanted to invest more in the customer experience and ensure our clients
continue to return to The Open in years to come," said David MacCallum,
director of sales for The Open Official Hospitality.
Arena Structures is a member of the Arena Group, which has a number of
high-profile clients including The Championships, Wimbledon, the London
Boat Show, Henley Royal Regatta and Music Festival and the Ryder Cup.
The group also redesigned the tennis tournament at Queen's Club for its
first outing with new sponsor AEGON, creating a blue environment to
reflect the financial firm's colours.
