Signs of recovery for events industry as Briggs Short Term Hire supports BOATS2020

09 September, 2020 by Tom Peace

2020 has been an incredibly difficult year for everyone involved in the events and exhibitions industry. The Coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on the sector, with restrictions only recently easing to allow limited events in certain settings to take place.

One of those events is ‘BOATS2020’ presented by Southampton International Boat Show, which is an outdoor exhibition featuring the latest marine products and equipment. The event will run from 11-20 September 2020 and is being held at Mayflower Park, Southampton.

Briggs has been a huge supporter of the events sector over a number of years and was on-hand to provide support for the BOATS2020 preparations in the form of several high quality, short-term hire forklifts.

As always, it was crucial that the Hire team were able to quickly identify the appropriate equipment for the job and deliver them on-time ready to be used.

Steven Fogg, Briggs Equipment’s Head of Short-Term Hire, commented: “It’s been a difficult few months for everyone involved in the events and exhibitions sector, so we’re delighted to be back up and running with our support. We’re aware that these are only early tentative steps, but it’s been impressive to see the creativity and determination to get this event up and running in a safe and secure manner.

“BOATS2020 is an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our capability to deliver high-quality solutions into a COVID secure environment. I’m really pleased with the support we’ve been able to provide and the feedback we’ve received from the customer has reflected that.

“There’s no doubt that over the coming months there will be lots of challenges for event organisers and industry leaders to tackle, but we’re committed to playing our part in keeping business moving.”
