Losberger De Boer, the temporary structure specialist, successfully constructed more than 2000 square metres of event space for the Icons of Rugby 2018.

This is the first of three events that the temporary structure specialist will be working on in the Icons series, which will also include Icons of Football and Icons of Cricket in 2019. At this year’s competition, Losberger De Boer constructed its Jumbo Hall to house the event’s hospitality facilities which included a fine dining restaurant and gin tasting experience.

Tom Brookes, CEO and founder of Iconiqe, commented: “The Icons series is an unusual sporting event format; taking leading sports personalities from their natural sporting environments and then asking them to compete against their peers on the golf course. The players are all fiercely competitive which only adds to the excitement.

“We needed an event venue that could adapt to our requirements and a supplier who could provide advice on how we could creatively get the most out of our hospitality areas – and that’s exactly the service we received from the Losberger De Boer team. I look forward to seeing what else we achieve over the next two Icons events.”

John Cochrane, sales director – events at Losberger De Boer, added: “This is the first of three Icons events that Losberger De Boer will be providing structures for, so we were delighted to get involved in the early stages of this innovative sporting event.

“Our excellent relationship with the Buckinghamshire Golf Club helped with the smooth running of this project and allowed us to build an event space that delivered a memorable experience for everyone who attended.”

The team also provided various smaller ancillary structures, as well as an outside terrace that was surrounded by large glass panels. The location of the terrace overlooked the river and provided spectators with a picturesque view across Buckinghamshire Golf Club’s grounds.
