Eve has won the Best Fencing / Crowd Barrier Company award at the fifth annual Event Production Awards held at the prestigious Lancaster Hotel in London on 12th February.
Eve, one of the leading suppliers to the UK events industry, offers an extensive range of fencing and crowd barriers, ranging from their Super-Fortress fence that is famed for its use at the Glastonbury Festival, to a range of crowd control barriers that are installed in their thousands at events across the UK.
The judging panel was particularly impressed with Eve’s supply of over 30,000 metres of demarcation barriers along the route of the 2015 London Marathon. The barriers were essential for ensuring the safety of participants and spectators, plus to install, maintain and remove the system saw nearly 100 Eve crew members and 40 support vehicles deliver the barrier solution within extreme time constraints.
Nigel Quinn, Managing Director at Eve said, “We’re absolutely delighted to win this award. We’re proud to be an innovative supplier to the events industry and for the London Marathon we developed our delivery vehicles to have deployable side walkways that not only improve safety, but also efficiency when it comes to delivery and recovery.”
Nigel continued, “As 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Eve’s formation it’s great to start this landmark year with this award as it recognises so much of what we’re about as a company, both in terms of the product and service we can offer.”
