Karl’s Event Services announced this week that it is becoming part of the Arena Group. Arena is a global provider of temporary structures, seating, design and overlay services to support delivery of live events.
Arena operates from multiple locations in the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates (Dubai), Singapore, Malaysia, Portugal, Spain and now the United States. Some Arena-supported events include the London Olympics, Wimbledon and Abu Dhabi Formula 1. With corporate headquarters in Oak Creek, Wis., and branches in New Jersey, Florida and California, Karl’s supports a variety of U.S. events including the NFL Super Bowl, Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, as well as PGA and NASCAR events.
“Both organizations, Arena and Karl’s, have a similar vision for strategic growth, and I could not think of a better partner to support that vision using Karl’s as a platform here in the Americas,” says John Haener, CEO and president of Karl’s.
