Arena Group and Stuart Event Rentals Join Forces to Bring Exciting Special Event Solutions Across the United States
What happens when the best special event supplier in northern California joins forces with the top special event clearspan tent company in the United States?
The answer is special event magic. Planners and producers now have a nationwide source for innovative products and services previously unavailable from a single source. The combined company will deliver to the West Coast all the latest structure technology, branding, and custom, engineered solutions along with more than 100,000 square feet of under-the-tent inventory.
Arena Group CEO, Greg Lawless, and Stuart Event Rentals President, Michael Berman, announced on September 5, 2018, that Stuart Event Rentals has joined the Arena Group to provide a West Coast operations center to complement their existing operations in the Midwest and East Coast. Both local events and national projects will benefit from the country-wide inventory base, as well as increased access to trained and skilled labor. Michael Berman and Andrew Sutton will continue in their current roles at Stuart Event Rentals to further develop West Coast business and ensure continuity for current clients and staff.
Arena CEO, Greg Lawless, commented: “Delivering to clients the best experience possible with quality products and five-star service will always be Arena’s focus. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction. Stuart will help us achieve this as a best-in-class product and solution provider on the West Coast. Michael and Andrew have grown up in this industry and understand the needs and expectations of its customers,” he added. “The Arena Group is looking forward to many years of business development and market growth through the leadership and contributions of these two well-known industry veterans.”
Stuart President, Michael Berman, added, “In an industry strongly burdened by private equity ownership managing for short-term, bottom-line results, Arena/Stuart clients will benefit from a long-term investment in products, people, and innovative event services. We are very excited to provide both our clients and team members a home they can count on instead of worrying about who will own their equipment solutions provider when their event occurs.”
Stuart Event Rentals, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, has been providing premium event rentals to corporate, social and non-profit events for generations. Spanning four continents, the Arena Group provides exceptional special event experiences to its client base through their large inventory of clearspan tenting, flooring, tables and chairs, kitchen equipment, and HVAC, as well as custom, in-house design and manufacturing capabilities and some of the most cutting edge and innovative under-the-tent product lines available.
