Arsenal Meetings and Events opens Emirates Stadium to event students

Arsenal Meetings and Events hosted 65 event students
from the University on 13 November for a tour of the Emirates Stadium’s events
spaces and a Q&A session with Sales Executive Martin Pond and Senior Event
Executive Martina Rossi.

The students visited the four multi-purpose event
suites, the dining areas, including the Diamond Club, and the pitch itself,
which has been used for corporate events for the first time this year.

During the Q&A
session, the students were briefed on the range of events possible at the
venue, from concerts to meetings, and the flexibility and professionalism
needed from the event team.

Dr Claire
Humphreys, Course Leader at the University of Westminster, said: “As
students start out on their careers in the events industry it is vital that
they gain understanding of the role of event managers and the intricacies of
hosting corporate and private events. 

“Our visit to the
Emirates Stadium provides students at the University of Westminster with an
opportunity to learn about the work of event professionals, as well as
providing them with the chance to link their learning with real-world practice.”

Carlo
Zoccali, Meetings and Events Manager, added: “It was great to have the
opportunity to show these students around and explain what it is our event team
does at the venue. Emirates has a rare quality in that the spaces were designed
with events in mind. Our team enjoyed being able to touch upon and impart some
knowledge on all types of events.”
