Dan Bluff Arena Structures project manager, commented: “We work with the O2 on a number of different events, including the ATP World Tour, which means we’re familiar with the space available and the working practices within the venue. This allowed us to successfully construct a number of temporary structures within the venue, including a temporary VIP

party area, which enabled organisers to host pre and post celebrations on-site. We’re delighted to be able to build on our longstanding relationship with The BRITS and to once again be involved with this brilliant event.”

Spaceworks and Well Dressed Tables managing director, Christopher Piggott, commented: “The BRITS is always such a spectacular show to be part of and we’re proud to have once again been involved. We supplied a range of our tableware and furniture to ensure the main arena and VIP marquee were dressed seamlessly to reflect the glamour and the elegance of this event.”

Event organisers Face Partnership entrusted Ed Watts, event manager at the The Recipe, to create a premium hospitality experience for sponsors and their guests. Led by project manager Jason Preston, the Spaceworks and Well Dressed Tables team supplied an extensive range of furniture and high quality cutlery, crockery and glassware for the kitchen, meeting rooms, VIP spectator areas and centre of the track.

 

The centre of the track was creatively adapted into a versatile event space, hosting a media centre during the race, before being transformed into a post-race dinner party for sponsors and their guests. A premium experience was required for the unique dining location and this was created with black padded seats, stylish Lubiana plates, contemporary Messina cutlery and elegant Cuvee glassware.

Project manager Jason Preston said: “A dedicated team was deployed to the site for the duration of the event across the weekend, to ensure smooth installation, reconfiguration of the event spaces, replacement of fresh catering equipment for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings and de-rig.

 

“It’s not every day we create fine dining experiences inside world class sporting venues like this, but it was a spectacular setting for the event. Access to the venue was extremely restricted because the road leading into the venue wasn’t finished. We positioned the delivery vehicles on the outdoor cycling track and our team carried the equipment over 200metres into the building. In line with our environmental policy we utilised drip trays under our delivery vehicles in order to protect the surface of the track”.
