GL events Seating & Stadia has secured a three-year contract with the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) from 2017. The agreement will run alongside services delivered by its structures division, which is contracted to provide the VIP Chalet line and the Central Enclosure structures at the prestigious event, and where GL events has delivered grandstand seating over the last decade.
The agreement will cover the delivery of over four thousand seats across four stands at the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises signature event, the Royal International Air Tattoo; underlining GL events’ growing reputation as the go-to events partner for high profile sporting and entertainment events.
“We’re very proud of our seating and stadia offering here at GL events. We made large investments over the winter to ensure our Olympic-standard tiered seating was premium, comfortable, noise-free and continued to offer the best viewing experience possible,” commented Scott Jameson, Managing Director, GL events. “The trust that RIAT have put in us underlines their faith in our product and delivery, and our ability to make a difference to these excellent events.”
“We’re delighted to be returning once again with GL events to help us deliver the biggest military airshow on the UK outdoor events calendar,” commented Philippa Hayday-Brown, Head of Hospitality and Events at RAFCTE. “We want to give spectators the best possible experience and the grandstands are popular areas from which to see all the action. This partnership ensures our guests have a great view and a comfortable day with us.”
