Stadium MK has appointed Andy Gibb as Director of Arena MK in a bid to drive and shape its growing Conference and Event business.
New signing Gibb brings a wealth of experience with him. Most recently he was Managing Director at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Prior to this, Commercial Director of leading international events business GES, he is also a Board member of the Association of Event Venues.
Arena MK is an important asset for Stadium MK, also home to MK Dons Football Club, DoubleTree by Hilton Milton Keynes and Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill. Since the arena opened in February 2014 it has hosted many high profile sporting events, conferences and exhibitions.
Andy said "I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Arena MK at this exciting time in its development. The Arena is an outstanding facility, in a superb location, with a 304 bedroom hotel and market leading restaurants alongside it. The aim is to build on an already impressive calendar of events by attracting more exhibitions, conferences, live events and concerts, and to establish Arena MK as a serious player in the UK events market".
