GL events has been announced as a key events infrastructure supplier to the Glasgow 2018 European Championships this summer.
The company is named the ‘Official Overlay Supplier’ to the first-ever multi-sport competition, which is co-hosted with Berlin.
The partnership was agreed following a competitive tender through a joint venture between the global event experts and Field & Lawn Ltd, an Edinburgh-based tent and marquee specialist.
The European Championships is a new event that will be staged over eleven days in August and brings together the existing European Championships of six of the world’s top sports as well as a new European Golf Team Championships. Glasgow and Scotland will host Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Golf, Rowing and Triathlon.
GL events Field & Lawn will take responsibility for production and installation of infrastructure across the site, including temporary structures, cabins, sea containers, temporary audience seating, staging, exhibition equipment, fencing, trackway, temporary toilets and washrooms, lighting, flagpoles and furniture.
Scott Jameson Group Managing Director, GL events, UK, said: “It’s great to be working with another major sporting event. This partnership means we can deliver excellence across the event – the best possible service along with the very best quality temporary infrastructure, delivered by an experienced and collaborative team.
“GL events UK was national supplier of temporary structures for last year’s IAAF and IPC World Championships, and 2017 was a very strong year for our golfing partnerships, too. It’s good to be looking forward to another superb event.”
“GL events UK has a proven record as part of GL events Field & Lawn Ltd., the partners having successfully delivered event infrastructure as Official Overlay and Temporary Structures Provider for the Commonwealth Games, held in Glasgow in 2014.”
The European Championships will take place in Glasgow and Berlin 2 – 12 August 2018.
