Client Testimonial

I worked with Johnny Donnelly and his company Arcana during the Volvo Ocean Race Auckland Stopover in the lead up to, and during our event in March 2012. Johnny and his company Arcana was a huge asset to our event’s production. Arcana’s professionalism, in depth knowledge and huge passion for event production was second to none and they have raised the bar for event productions here in New Zealand.  We have no hesitation to work with Arcana again in the future.

Johnny Donnelly and his team were responsible for the entertainment program in Lorient both for the departure ceremony and our gala dinner during the Volvo Ocean Race stopover. Arcana did a great job to adapt to our event, our team and everybody who attended both happenings were entirely satisfied with the outcome. The gala was both high quality and popular, enabling stakeholders from VOR and our stopover to enjoy the atmosphere of a

high standards race around the world. Everything ran smoothly thanks to Johnny’s flexibility and expertise. His experience was certainly an asset to make the most of two key moments in our event.
