GL events Group announces contracts involving significant developments in the international arena, confirming its position as a leading partner for top-tier customers and the engagement of its teams.
Under the French Presidency of the G20 on 3-4 November, Heads of State and Government and Finance Ministers from 20 major economies comprised of developed and developing countries will meet in Cannes to address international economic issues.
For this event, GL events will coordinate all temporary structures and services: tents, canopies, partitions, flooring, decorative fixtures, furniture, lighting, electricity distribution, signage, catering equipment and pavilions.
GL events teams have assisted the organisers of this event in its organisation and production, meeting the high level specification requirements, notably in terms of quality and security, imposed by the Ministries.
Among the twelve stadiums hosting the World Rugby Cup in New Zealand, the most important is the legendary Eden Park hosting 11 matches, including notably the opening, bronze final and final. GL events was selected to boost Eden Park's capacity limited to 48,000 with additional seating for 12,000 through temporary grandstands.
GL events was awarded this contract on the strength of its technical expertise and position as a Global Player, offering the customer the advantages of a single project manager for the full range of services, and including a particularly noteworthy undertaking: designing temporary grandstands of an exceptional 33m height.
Along with the installation of a grandstand seating 500 for VIP boxes, this contract also provided for the design and installation of five television broadcast studios plus electricity and lighting for temporary installations.
Finally, GL events produced a Hospitality Pavilion based on its Absolute design range with kitchen facilities and several restaurants.
The Group will also be present at the next Africa Cup of Nations to be held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea in early 2012, organising the Opening Ceremony and providing temporary equipment.
As a partner of major worldwide events, GL events is responding to calls for tender by the Organising Committee of the London 2012 Olympic Games with very stringent requirements, particularly in terms of sustainable development.
For the medium and longer term, GL events is preparing and planning for the next major events including notably those of Brazil for the World Football in 2014 and the next Olympic Games in 2016.
