Event Flooring Solutions were commissioned by the Royal Horticultural Society to provide temporary event flooring for this year's event at the prestigious Chatsworth House. At the heart of the site sat the interpretation of Joseph Paxton's Great Conservatory, flanked either side by the Cavendish and the Devonshire Floral Marquees, which were home to nurseries, specialist societies and floral design. EFS provided the flooring for each of these marquees with their Temp-A-Path flooring system.
The flooring was installed this year for the first time, to improve accessibility within the two marquees. The installation took place over 2 days with 7 men working 8 ½ eight hours per day, with the uplift taking the crew the same amount of time. All together, 5700sqm of light grey Temp-A-Path was installed; 3300sqm in the larger Devonshire marquee and 2400sqm in the Cavendish. The Temp-A-Path was laid on top of a Geo-membrane to improve protection to the ground below.
Adam Walker, Operations Assistant for the Chatsworth Flower Show said: 'Just thought I'd pass on this snippet from our feedback summary from the first day: Brilliant flooring of large marquees with all stalls – very easy to walk on and if it does rain it will be great.'
Jeremy Simpson, EFS's Business Development Manager said: 'We were delighted to work with the Royal Horticultural Society for the first time and the contract was a major coup for us. We knew that Temp-A-Path would tick all the boxes, it does what it says on the tin!'
The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show offered a thrilling day out that blended tradition with exciting and innovative design. The 5 day show took place from 6 to 10 June with thousands of people flocking to the show.

LAMMA - the UK's largest farm machinery and agricultural services show - returned to the East of England Showground in January 2018. Attracting over 40,000 visitors and 900 exhibitors.
EFS Europe has been a supplier to the shows' exhibitors for the last four years, providing its specialist flooring services for both indoor and outdoor exhibitions and demonstration stands.
EFS Europe's Temp-a-Path and Hex-Road products are easy to install solutions for pedestrian and vehicular use. Both products can be installed in detailed configurations, allowing exhibitors to create safe and unhindered access for visitors wishing to view their display equipment or services.
In addition, EFS's specialist ranges of exhibition carpet and artificial grass were utlised - perfect for adding detailed finishing touches to the stands and displays.
Jeremy Simpson, EFS's Business Development Manager said 'LAMMA is moving to the NEC next year, so this is the last year we will be supplying the show. It has been a privilege to work with the show organisers and the 40 plus businesses we have helped with their stands. It's a real shame that the high winds stopped play this year and the show had to be cancelled, especially given this is the last time LAMMA will be at the East of England Showground.'

In the historic town of Bury St Edmunds, the Christmas Fayre is a focal part of the local festivities, and EFS Europe has been supplying temporary flooring for the event for the last four years.
Having expanded by over 30%, the organisers needed 2,500m2 of EFS Temp-a-Path™ plastic flooring to protect the city's Cathedral grounds and provide safe pedestrian access for the thousands of visitors.
100 miles north, EFS Europe also returned to the ancient city of Lincoln for its famous market held in the city's historic Castle & Castle Gardens. Attracting over 250,000 visitors, the organisers specified over 2,900m2 of EFS Temp-A-Path™to be installed within the grounds. Having started with just 11 stalls, the market now showcases more than 200 traders and a variety of cultural entertainment.
These winter events choose EFS Temp-A-Path™ due to its lightweight nature, and the fact that all the sites contain historic listed buildings. The ability to install the Temp-A-Path™ by hand allows the organisers to keep heavy plant machinery to a minimum, reducing the risk of damage to property, roads or footpaths. In both locations, Temp-A-Path™ is also used to protect grassed areas, reducing the cost of post-event clean up and maintenance.
Speaking about the projects, EFS Europe Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson said:
"These events have become a regular feature on our own event calendar. The locations present their own unique challenges, but by using our EFS Temp-A-Path™ product the organisers have been able to grow in size without having to worry about how to protect the site surfaces."

Hillhead is a completely unique event: a trade exhibition for quarry operators and other users of heavy machinery that is held within an actual quarry. The quarry in question provides the name for the event – Hillhead, located in Buxton right in the heart of the Pennine Hills. The show takes up 140,000m2 of the quarry, giving a dynamic but logistically difficult setting for such a large outdoor event.
