GL events rebrands Slick Seating

GL events Seating and Stadia is the new name for Slick Seating after a rebrand two years after its purchase by GL events. Scott Hayward, Managing Director of GL events UK Group, explained:

Under the ownership of GL events, Slick Seating has grown considerably – both in its capabilities and its products. The company is now in a very strong position when it comes to supplying event seating and the re-development of stadiums. The standard of our seating solutions combined with the expertise of the team has become a valuable asset when it comes to offering clients a complete package for their event.

We can manufacture, hire and sell all forms of tiered seating – from 100 seater grandstands for a smaller sporting events to a bespoke tiered seating stand for events of all shapes and sizes, both indoor and outdoor. Our sports portfolio this year has included major events such as the Lawn Tennis Association’s Aegon Classic at Edgbaston, the Open Golf Championship at Muirfield, and the AJ Bell World Squash Championship. Stadium redevelopment in particular is an area where we have excelled, this year; we designed and constructed the new East Stand at Barnet FC’s ground, and work is now underway constructing new stands at both Borehamwood FC and Watford FC.

The new brand will sit under the recently formed GL events UK Group umbrella along with Owen Brown and Snowdens. Hayward added:

We have a considerable number of clients that now engage with several of our brands as we can provide a complete package for their events. Using the umbrella brand of GL events Group UK allows us clarity in our proposition as a ‘one-stop-shop’ while still recognising the roots of our business with the well known names of Owen Brown and Snowdens.
