Bill Toner to be keynote speaker at Arena Christmas Lunch

Host boss Bill Toner has been announced as keynote speaker at the Arena Christmas Lunch next month.

Toner returned to the contract catering industry last December as non-executive chairman at Host Contract Management, five years after leaving Aramark.

He then took the role of chief executive in May when managing director and founder Jerry Brand opted to concentrate on his catering management software business Caternet.

More than 200 senior hospitality professionals are expected to gather at the networking event, to be held on Monday 5 December at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London.

Toner, who has enjoyed 30 years in the industry, will give an insight into his decision to return after his extended break and how the sector has changed.

Tickets cost £135 plus VAT for Arena members and £175 plus VAT for non-members.
