LAMMA – the UK’s leading farm machinery, equipment and services show relocated this year from Newark to the Peterborough Arena and the East of England Showground complex. Having outgrown its original Newark base the Peterborough complex was selected as its new host from January 2014. The prestigious business exhibition event – which showcases all the latest agricultural equipment and services – attracts over 45,000 farmers and suppliers from across Europe. LAMMA was established in 1982 by a small group of local agricultural equipment manufacturers from across Lincolnshire. The first event was held at the Lincolnshire Showground, with some 50 exhibitors displaying their products at the show. The current event now attracts over 950 stands covering all aspects of the agricultural industry. As the official protective flooring supplier, EFS were asked to provide their complete range of flooring solutions for the show site as a whole and for 70 individual stands. The torrential rain both before and during the event meant the temporary flooring was vital to provide access to the site and stands during build up as well as encouraging visitors to get around the show site. EFS staff installed 2,500m² of their Hex Road

We were appointed by Kambe Events for the third year in succession to provide and install temporary flooring for their festival site and camping areas at Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire. The annual Shambala takes place for 4 days over the August Bank Holiday weekend and has been described by The Independent as "In a nutshell- energetic, playful, bonkers, theatrical, green”. Over the past 5 years the festival has grown by over one third to some 15,000 visitors and with this year’s event selling completely out well in advance of the dates, it was apparent that in 2013 it would be bigger than ever and as such additional flooring would be required. For general vehicle access both to and around the site we installed 1060m² of Hex Road

Following the previous year’s torrential downpours at this iconic global event, we were asked to provide our Temp-A-Path® to protect the all important sales and merchandising areas within the historic Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit. Working on behalf of Roder Europe we supplied and installed 500m² of green Temp-A-Path® to blend in, protect the grounds and provide a firm footing for the thousands of spectators attending over the 4 days. The marquee based trade stands attract high footfall and so it was critical for us to provide a safe platform for customers and staff alike. Our product was installed as pathways in front of the many sales stands. Thankfully the heavy rain from the previous year’s British Grand Prix didn’t re-occur but Temp-A-Path® protected the grass area and was again the ideal solution.

This old and very dangerous area had previously been condemned as totally unsafe causing a number of trips and falls to customers, additionally due to birds, nature and the elements the visual imagery was poor. Following a number of site visits, meetings and discussions with B38 and Go Outdoors we recommended our Temp-A-Path®
