Innovation is important in the event industry. Surprising audiences every year and going beyond the standard. With that, events continue to astound and surprise their audiences. That is why Neptunus Structures is constantly developing new event structures. In recent years, this has already showcased the Salacia, Alure Globe Giant and the award-winning Poseidon. In 2022, Neptunus introduced the Alure Globe Dome, which will be presented in the UK for the first time at the Showman’s Show on 18 and 19 October.
Ben Keast, Managing Director of Neptunus Ltd: “This is a unique structure for the events sector which can really create an impact and can be used for experiential events, product launches, VIP areas at festivals, presentations, an eye-catching reception space and many more possibilities. It’s immensely adaptable.”
The circular Alure Globe Dome is a unique structure that has a clear span of 20 metres with 314 square metres floor area and can be built with side wall heights of 3.85 to 5 metres. The free internal height in the middle ranges from 6.5 to 7.8 metres.
Ben Keast, Managing Director of Neptunus Ltd: “It’s vitally important to keep innovating and refreshing our offer to our clients. While the events sector in the UK remains strong, event goers are getting more selective with the events they attend. Consequently, suppliers need to ensure standards are high, budgets are met, and deadlines are reached whilst still making sure that an event stands out. This is why we are introducing a new product to our extensive temporary structure range: our new Alure Globe Dome that we are proud to be showcasing for the first time in the UK at the Showman’s Show.”
