GL events UK is investing £500k in refurbishments and new technology ahead of what it predicts to be a "major summer".

The marquee and temporary structures specialist, which has secured more than 300 summer bookings, is replacing doors, flooring and re-designing its glass frontages as well as upgrading technology.

The investment follows the appointment of two new directors, including former International Special Event Society (ISES) board member David Tunnicliffe as commercial director.

Scott Jameson, GL events UK MD, said: “This is the next step in securing the continuation of the very highest standards from our business this year. We’ve attracted the right leadership team and now we’ve made intelligent investments in our product. It means we’ll continue with the same outstanding delivery, but also raise the bar in terms of innovation and finish, so that our structures turn heads at events.”
