Darren Moore (pictured) started as general manager of the arena in March, taking over from Dan Harris who has moved to the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. Darren was previously general manager at York Barbican.

Darren said: “We have had a very exciting start to 2022 with lots of fantastic events and I am looking forward to meeting with partners and local businesses to talk to them about the arena and how we may be able to work together.”

Paul Savage, head of entertainment sales and marketing, and Laura Harrison, conference and event sales executive, will also be talking at the event about opportunities for local businesses.

Paul said: “We have hosted some incredible events so far in 2022 with sold-out shows from Blondie, Simply Red, John Bishop, Texas and Bastille. We have lots more to come too with gigs from Bryan Adams and the Pet Shop Boys in May and then performances from Kaiser Chiefs, Katherine Ryan and Hull’s very own Calum Scott later in the year.

“With over 200,000 people expected to visit the Arena in 2022, we have lots to talk about and look forward to welcoming businesses to see how we can work together.”

The business breakfast will take place at the Bonus Arena, in Myton Street, Hull, on May 18 from 9am to 10.30am.

A draw to win two VIP tickets will also take place at the event to allow more people in the city to experience the arena’s hospitality offer.
