SNP Conference

Client Requirement

For their autumn conference the client required additional space for exhibitors at the entrance to Perth Concert Hall. An additional area was required for evening receptions, lectures and fringe events.

Marquee Style

12 x 30 Marquee to house exhibition space and form entrance to Conference Venue.

15m x 15m Marquee for receptions, lectures and fringe events.




Suspended floor system with internal ballast to avoid damage to pedestrian walkways around the area.


On several occasions we have installed exhibition space for the SNP conferences. Their recent autumn conference required some additional space at their conference venue for exhibition area and fringe events such as lectures and receptions.

The challenging part was that the marquee had to be linked to the hall and also be secured without damaging the block paving which formed the pedestrian walkways surrounding the area.

A 12m x 30m Marquee was installed as exhibition area using our rapid lay suspended flooring system which has special channels incorporated into the steelwork so that bespoke weights can be inserted to assist with the weighting of the structure. These were augmented by concrete weights.

Access to building was available throughout the exhibition build with a link offering additional exhibition space and a covered area directly into the building being installed at the last minute to give a fully integrated area for conference attendees to enter the main arena through.

The additional fringe marquee offering space for around 300 delegates was sited adjacent to the hall but in a free standing area. This too was installed using ballast to avoid any damage to the block paving stones.
