Acer Arena tops in event catering 


Sydney, Australia | Tuesday, 26th October, 2010. 

Acer Arena was the major winner at the 2010 National Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Awards for Excellence held

in Melbourne at Peninsula, Docklands last night.

Acer Arena won the prestigious awards of National Caterer of the Year and Venue Caterer of the Year.  Acer Arena

conducts the catering operations in-house, which is standard practice for its venue operator, AEG Ogden.

Acer Arena’s General Manager, Paul Sergeant was ecstatic about the win.

“I have just started here in the GM role and I am completely blown away with the professionalism and enthusiasm of the

team. There are many venues around the world that would give anything to have catering of this calibre. The awards are

well deserved and they reinforce the standards that have been set at Acer Arena that places it amongst the top arenas in

the world”. 

These awards come after Acer Arena’s success at the Catering NSW Metropolitan Awards for Excellence held earlier this

month, where it took home the gongs for the state titles of Caterer of the Year and Venue Caterer of the Year.
