Neptunus has secured a new contract to continue to supply temporary structures to the Affordable Art Fair held each May on London’s Hampstead Heath.

Neptunus has been providing the temporary infrastructure for the popular event since 2013. Following next year’s fair, organisers have agreed a new contract with Neptunus through to 2023.

Elizabeth Dellert, UK fair director, said: “We are delighted to be working with Neptunus as tent contractor for the Affordable Art Fair on Hampstead Heath. Their dedication and professionalism allows us to continue to be one of the only events to be held on the prestigious Hampstead Heath site. The structure itself continues to meet our high-end specifications and perfectly reflects the calibre of our event. They are a wonderful team to work with and we look forward to further collaborations in future.”

April Trasler, MD of Neptunus’ UK operation, commented: “We are delighted to secure this new agreement with the Affordable Art Fair which once again underpins our reputation for creating high quality yet cost-effective space solutions for big cultural occasions.”

Neptunus provides 5,300 square metres of space in three Alu Hall temporary buildings including a main exhibition hall spanning 4,250 metres. Temporary structures form a bespoke front entrance, café area, cloakrooms and administration offices.
