Owner and manager of NewCal Events, Arnaud has been at the helm of the business since he recently took the reins in 2019. Born in New Caledonia, he’s passionate about travel and tourism taking his studies to Australia where he lived for over 9 years and obtained his Master of Business majoring in International Tourism from Bond University on the Gold Coast. He finished his studies with a high distinction following his thesis on New Caledonia’s tourism and potential for international trade.

He’s worked for several airlines, event management and hospitality organisations and as a conference coordinator giving him first-hand knowledge of the MICE industry. Following his return to New Caledonia, he’s now bringing his expertise and local knowledge to NewCal Events management.

As an owner-operator, Arnaud prides himself in personally looking after each event from quote to conclusion and undeniably embodies his company’s catch phrase of « NewCal Events – where passion and the Pacific meet. »
