NOEA names GL events as first Futures Supporter

GL events will be the first company to become a NOEA Futures Supporter following an announcement today at The Showman’s Show. The agreement will see GL events take an active role in the progression and strategy for the National Outdoor Events Association (NOEA), with the ambition of growing its influence for the industry, and providing the very best value to its members.

The NOEA Futures sponsorship was launched earlier in the summer with the aim of harnessing the reach, expertise and proactivity of some of the leading brands within the outdoor events industry. GL events is the first to become a supporter, with the association looking to encourage other forward thinking brands to get involved.

“Obtaining the NOEA kite mark is one of the key reasons members join our association. It’s a mark of excellence and confidence for event professionals,” commented Richard Limb, President of NOEA. “However, we wanted to give companies the opportunity to take a more proactive stance to their relationship with our association, to help us increase our reach and influence and, in doing so, benefit the strength of the industry.”

“We’ve been members of NOEA for a long time and have seen the association flourish,” comments Scott Jameson, Managing Director at GL events. “At the moment this industry needs as much support as possible, and forward-thinking brands to help it grow and commercialise. Being the first NOEA Futures Supporter means we can utilise our own resources to benefit the industry.”

The announcement took place at the Showman’s Show, where GL events is partnering with furniture and catering hire specialist, Thorns Group, to showcase its temporary structure product and demonstrate how well it works by empowering delivery partners to create the very best event settings within its premium temporary structures.
