attractions including the smaller 2,350 capacity live music venue, indigO2, an
11-screen cinema, an exhibition space, and a whole host of restaurants, bars
and cafes for visitors to enjoy.

menu development, purchasing, receiving, inventory control, production
management, transfers and requisitions in the O2 arena's 96 suites, 16 public
concession stands, 8 bars, VIP Club Lounge, O2 Lounge and Blueroom, the
Chairman's Club, and back-office kitchen. In indigO2, EatecNetX will be used
