Neptunus shelters stars at MTV Europe Music Awards

Superstars arriving at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Rotterdam on Sunday evening were sheltered from the weather thanks to a temporary structure erected over the red carpet by Neptunus.

The music industry’s biggest names entered the Ahoy Arena through a 1,400 square metre VIP walkway protecting stars from the elements as they posed for photographs before the star-studded event.

The Alure Globe hall, erected by technicians from Neptunus, had a transparent roof and glass sides to ensure fans and the world’s media all got excellent views of the celebrities.

This year was the third occasion that The Netherland’s has hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards and the second time that Rotterdam has staged the ceremony which was broadcast to a world-wide TV audience.

A ten strong team from Neptunus took just three days to erect the facility which incorporated heating and air conditioning systems.

Neptunus Managing Director April Trasler said: “We were delighted to be asked to provide the Red Carpet facility for the MTV Europe Music Awards which is a massively high-profile international occasion.”

Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber both collected two awards at the ceremony which paid tribute to the late musician Prince with EMA trophies turned purple in memory of the pop superstar. Lady Gaga took the prize for best female and best look while Bieber beat Adele to best song for his track Sorry and then won best fans for the third year in a row. Dutch DJ Martin Garrix also picked up two awards while Coldplay won in the Best Rock category.
