Arena Events Group plc (AIM: ARE), is pleased to announce that it has completed the installation of the largest single temporary hospitality structure ever installed in Japan, in partnership with Omni International in Yokohama Japan, for a rugby tournament starting this month.


The 3,800 square-meter facility, located at Shin Yokohama, adjacent to the Nissan Stadium will host guests for all seven matches at the Nissan Stadium.


This is the second time that Arena has worked at the world's biggest rugby tournament after successful delivery in the UK in 2015. Arena was a key supplier in delivering multiple temporary structures for hospitality and back of house areas, as well as media facilities.


Sports Travel & Hospitality Japan (STHJ) was awarded the contract as sole provider of hospitality for the tournament in Japan in 2019 and will be offering a unique guest experience, combining traditional western hospitality with Japanese Omotenashi, the philosophy of Japanese hospitality. Arena has worked with STH Group on a number of high-profile sporting events.


Paul Berger, CEO for Arena Middle East & Asia, said: "We are honoured to be involved in the first ever Rugby World Cup in Asia. It's been a pleasure to work with the team at STH Japan to deliver this extraordinary facility that is sure to provide a memorable experience for guests."


Martyn Lee, Head of Operations, STH Japan K K, said: "The Webb Ellis Pavilion and Suites is our flagship temporary structure and it has been a pleasure to have worked with Arena who, with their local partners Omni International, have delivered an amazing structure. We are confident the facility will exceed the expectations of both our domestic and international clients and guests, at this hugely exciting time for Japan to host the third largest sporting even in the world."


Arena will return to Japan next year for the Summer Olympic Games to install temporary seating for the Beach Volleyball Stadium as well as numerous hospitality facilities.
