Glasgow 2014 has announced Arena Group as an Official Overlay and Temporary Structures Provider for the Commonwealth Games which will include exclusive responsibility for temporary seating.
Arena Group will provide temporary structures as part of the work being done across Games venues to bolster spectator facilities, including VIP. Ty Speer, Glasgow 2014 Deputy Chief Executive, said:
Getting overlay right at venues is a vital component towards the delivery of a successful Commonwealth Games and we are delighted that Arena Group is joining our Sponsor Family. They are a UK company whose experienced team have a proven track record in temporary event overlay at a range of major global sporting and cultural events.
Dave Withey, Sales and Marketing Director, Arena UK & Europe, said:
We believe that our proven track record both here and overseas, and our investment into new products – clearview™ seating and Arcus structure – means that we’re ideally placed to give visitors, sponsors and athletes of the Games the best possible spectator experience.
It is very exciting to be involved in yet another global sporting event right here in the UK which will showcase the strength, skill and world leading standards of the UK event industry.
Malcolm Construction and Aggreko have also signed up as official providers, of constructon and temporary power respectively. Malcolm has begun work to change Hampden Park into a world-class track and field venue for the Games and will return it to football only afterwards. Glasgow-based Aggreko will provide temporary power across the Games’ 13 sports venues and the Athletes Village.
