Snow­dens makes a mark in mar­quees

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et business Daily -

PETER­BOR­OUGH firm GL events Snow­dens is mak­ing its mark in mar­quees, and tem­po­rary struc­tures, hav­ing supplied two ma­jor events. Based on Fen­gate, Snow­dens con­tin­ues to sup­ply to lo­cal busi­ness and events, but in re­cent years it has been tar­get­ing larger events fur­ther afield. Re­cent con­tract wins in­clude The Guardians Hay Fes­ti­val which was held in the Bre­con Bea­cons Na­tional Park, and MINT Polo in the Park which was hosted at the Hurling­ham Park, Cen­tral London.

More than 12,000sq m of soft­sided and hard-sided frame tents were supplied by Snow­dens to the Hay Fes­ti­val to form the tented vil­lage that the event is held within. This was the largest sin­gle event con­tract the firm has won in its 192-year his­tory.

At MINT Polo in the Park it supplied three struc­tures to house VIP hos­pi­tal­ity suites and other smaller struc­tures.

Paul Ver­non, the event di­rec­tor, said: “GL events Snow­dens has pro­vided us with a first class ser­vice through­out and we look for­ward to build­ing a long term re­la­tion­ship with them as the event to goes from strength to strength.” Snow­dens was bought out 10 years ago by GL events, Europe’s largest events ser­vices com­pany.
