Case Study: Harrogate Flower Show

The Assignment

The Harrogate Flower Show is widely regarded as one of the UK’s biggest and most prestigious independent garden events where enthusiasts can enjoy beautiful show gardens, a vast array of plants and garden-related products, expert advice and demonstrations.

The organisers, the North of England Horticultural Society, needed a temporary structure specialist that offered flexibility and a wide range of high quality products to create everything from exhibition spaces, lecture theatres and food halls to information points and a bandstand.

The Solution

Neptunus is able to supply a dedicated installation team to work at the show and supplies more than 15,000 square metres of temporary space.

Several large Alu Halls with integrated cassette flooring and rigid PVC walls create a clearspan environment, ideally suited to creating uniterrupted views of the main plant and flower exhibits.

Neptunus’ Alu Halls, which are available in a range of widths, are a practical and flexible solution for events of all kinds and are used at the Harrogate shows to offer light and airy spaces for the food halls, lecture theatres and hospitality areas.

Neptunus’ robust but flexible Apollo structures and stylish pagoda-style Pluto marquees supply the perfect solution for retail facilities, information points and the bandstand.

The Challenges

The installation team has got the two-week build programme for the Harrogate Flower Shows down to a fine art.

With a full calendar of events to work around, plus existing structures on site to consider, the Neptunus team carefully plans the installation to ensure smooth entry to the Great Yorkshire Showground and a trouble-free build.

Once the show closes, all of the structures are efficiently dismantled and removed within a week.

The Verdict

In December 2011, Neptunus was awarded a five-year contract to supply the North of England Horticultural Society’s Harrogate Flower Shows.

Show Director Martin Fish says: “We’re continually looking at ways to develop the show and Neptunus demonstrated the quality of products and flexibility to work with us to achieve this. Their structures meet our requirements now and can evolve with the shows over the next five years.

“I am more than happy that we have chosen the right supplier and am impressed with their level of service.”
