Olympic Torch lights Arena Lecture

13 March 2012

To further add interest, and build on the theme for the evening, the London 2012 Olympic Torch will make an appearance at The Arena Lecture in London on 20th March 2012.

The Arena Lecture - Catering for the 2012 Games: Myths, Legends & Legacies - at The Savoy, London, will be presented by Jan Matthews, Head of Catering, Cleaning and Waste Services for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), and will now also feature the iconic torch.

In the year of the 2012 Games, the lecture topic is incredibly relevant and exciting. Jan, the person ultimately responsible for delivering the complete catering package for the Games, will address her industry colleagues and give her take on the hospitality and catering journey so far, the challenges still be faced, and the legacy that she hopes to leave.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to announce that thanks to Coca Cola, we have secured a unique opportunity to have present on the evening of The Arena Lecture a London 2012 Olympic Torch. The 2012 Games naturally generates interest across the board and as a result our speaker, Jan Matthews, and the subject of catering for the Games have already created a lot of excitement. Now that we can promise our guests the unexpected chance to see an Olympic Torch up close, this excitement is sure to escalate!”
