Team Europe reclaimed the Solheim Cup during this contest, a highlight of the world’s sporting calendar. Head-to-head match play was complimented by a festival of entertainment, set in the rolling Perthshire hills.
GL events installed temporary seating and a wide range of temporary structures to give shape to the event’s spectator village. Here, the Cup’s Opening Ceremony included music from local as well as world-famous bands and was televised around the world.
In support of the main-stage action, GL events provided 3,500 Samsonite Chairs that were installed in 16 blocks and cable-tied together by hand to ensure the formation remained in place. When the opening ceremony ended, the GL events operations team removed 12 blocks of seating, leaving four blocks in place to accommodate on-stage activities throughout the remainder of the tournament.
Our temporary structures, meanwhile, were home to a hive of activity in the Spectator Village, where visitors could enjoy activities ranging from crazy golf and mini ride-on tractors for children, to brand activations, refreshments and a fan zone complete with golfing challenges.
GL events’ installation included a 40m hospitality venue; a 10m golf demonstration zone; a series of hexagonal tents, used as information, retail and brand activation spaces and an array of premium 10 and 20m structures, complete with clear roofs and branding, where spectators could enjoy leisure activities during their visit.
A total of 6,200sqm of lined and carpeted temporary space was designed and created for the event, complete with an additional 6,000sqm of flooring to create a stylish visitor walkway throughout the Village.
