Evolution Dome provides temporary inflatable structures for COP26

Evolution Dome, a supplier of temporary inflatable structures, provided an 'insulated and sustainable approach' to Federated Hermes' COP26 Fringe Event, according to the company's director.

The international business of Federated Hermes hosted a Fringe Festival between 4-12 November at skypark, Glasgow.

Federated Hermes hosted the 'Further, Faster' conference, which addressed the three interlinked emergencies of climate, nature and social injustice. The conference brought together experts in these fields to set 'how much?' and 'by when?' objectives to deal with these emergencies and to put a cost on them.

The conference also had a 'Financial Industry' session to propose solutions for how these objectives could be funded and how the industry might need to transform itself to be fit for this essential purpose.

Claire Arnold, marketing and events manager at Federated Hermes, said: “The structures had a massive impact on the event. The service we received from the Evolution Dome team from start to finish was excellent. The structures were exactly as described and more than robust enough for our event. The event logistics changed many times and Evolution Domes just adapted with us and ran with it without issue the whole way through.”

Ash Austin, director at Evolution Dome, added: “It was a real pleasure to work with the federated Hermes team. We have played our part in different COP26 events before and it was great to be able to play our part in the UK’s hosting. The structures provided an insulated, sustainable approach to the event and the perfect conference environment in the typically cold and wet location.

"Federated Hermes engaged with us from a very early stage which enabled us to manage all of the logistical challenges that come with working on an event of this size. The structures created a welcome hub, learning zone, seminar theatre, relaxation room and breakout spaces across the nine day event."
