Arena Group has acquired the seating and mass participation divisions of Wernick Events, rebranding the business to operate as Arena Seating from its existing Coventry facility, as part of Arena UK and Europe.

This strategic acquisition continues Arena UK and Europe’s ongoing expansion plans, with the addition of more than 30,000 temporary grandstand seats, scaffolding, deck and truss. Arena Seating’s UK stock now rises to more than 120,000 temporary seats available to the marketplace delivering more than 350 projects this year.

Grahame Muir, CEO Arena UK and Europe, stated: “We are delighted to have completed this deal which will consolidate our strength as the UK’s premier event seating supplier. We are focused on achieving a seamless integration of the business into Arena Seating, whilst retaining the Coventry base and thus improving our service level across the UK.

“The rapidly expanding mass participation sports division of the company also adds an exciting new dynamic to our UK offering. This year we will supply over 250 mass participation sports events to prestigious clients including Cancer Research UK, British Military Fitness and the British Heart Foundation.”
