GL events UK, the temporary structure specialist, has been announced as the official overlay supplier to the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, taking place this summer.

The partnership was agreed following a tender by a joint venture between GL Events and Field and Lawn, an Edinburgh-based tent and marquee specialist.

The European Championships is a multisport event that will be staged over 11 days in August.GL Events Field and 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 at GL events UK, commented: “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.”
