Accommodation

Arena International Events Group “(Arena”) is aware of numerous third party agencies which are contacting Arena’s customers and purporting to have access to hotel room bookings and events attendee lists. For the avoidance of doubt, Arena will only share attendee lists with carefully selected third party partners for event registration purposes. Whilst Arena International Events Group pursues third party agencies for their potentially illicit activity, Arena encourages you to be cautious in engaging with such third party agencies and Arena shall not accept any responsibility for any losses incurred by you should you choose to engage with third parties that have no affiliation to Arena International Events Group.
