Gala Dinner

From 100 to 900 guests, the AIS Arena can roll out the red carpet for your gala dinner.

This floor plan showcases a dinner for 300 guests with a separated space for pre-dinner cocktails.


The large floor space in the Arena can be separated to create whatever you need. Curtains and blackouts can create a separate exhibition space for your sponsors or a breakout space for your delegates to discuss conference topics.
