It’s Been a Colourful Couple of Weeks for Showplace, From Flowers to Airshows

As the World Cup comes to an end and our sweep stake winner is announced, employee Matt is due to collect his winnings shortly, the team have been hard at work with numerous events.

We are currently midway through another one of our busiest months in the calender. Last week saw our team build for the organisers of the Royal International Air Tattoo. Showplace were approached to create temporary space solutions for the shows information points and also for their private Crew Club area. See below images of our temporary structures at the show, a good amount of graphic walls to brighten up the place!

The RHS Hampton Court Flower Show opened to the public last Tuesday, our kit was used to create a temporary structure solution for a client at the event. The team will also be heading to Tatton Park to create the same again for the flower show there next week. We were excited to see our stand build appear on the BBC2’s coverage of the show last week, see if you can spot it on the coverage for Tatton Park as well.


We had a double dose of the action at the Kent County Show as our structures and trailer divisions set-up for the event. The Kent County Council opted for a 6m x 6m Moda Structure from our range, as well as Mazda, our existing client who featured the Showplace managed branded trailer.

Elsewhere the Wiggle trailer took a trip to Newbury Racecourse for the one of many cycling events that Wiggle host throughout the year. This one was the Wiggle MagnifiCat, in its second year, the ride has four different routes will the epic (longest) being 125 miles! Around 2,000 cyclists took part in at the weekend, we hope all that took part enjoyed the event. The Wiggle trailer generally follows these events round the UK and sets up as a retail and promotional unit. Showplace manage the trailer units for Wiggle to include maintenance, storage, logistics and set-up and take-down at each event.
