Golf Live awards GL events Owen Brown three-year contract

GLeventsOwenBrownGL events Owen Brown will enable thousands of visitors to browse the biggest names in sportswear and equipment next week when it provides the main exhibitors’ hall at Golf Live.

The company has won a three-year contract to provide temporary structures to the interactive golf show, which takes place at the Celtic Manor Resort, in Newport, South Wales from May 10 to 12.

Golf Live is expected to attract 25,000 people over two days, lured by the prospect of meeting pro golfers, taking part in competitions and picking up new tips and skills at master-classes and skills clinics.

This year the event is also launching its Celebrity Cup, where teams representing England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales and featuring Sir Steve Redgrave, Jodie Kidd, Rob Brydon and Kenny Dalglish, will compete for honours, overseen by hosts Ant and Dec.

Owen Brown is supplying more than 2,000 square metres of space to the event from its Absolute temporary structure range, including an Eclipse curved roof structure, which will act as Golf Live’s tented village and will feature over 100 exhibitors showcasing top branded equipment, clothing, holiday destinations and lifestyle products.

Scott Hayward, managing director of GL events Owen Brown, said: “The enormous numbers of visitors expected to attend Golf Live indicates what a popular show it has become and this year’s attendance is expected to break all records, so this is a great time for us to make our debut at the event.

“Celtic Manor is a beautiful venue and the Tented Village will be right at the heart of the action, so we are very much looking forward to getting on site and getting started.”
