Airshow's new structure puts De Boer in the 'Premier' league

29th April 2010

Visitors to this summer’s

Farnborough International Airshow are to get the UK’s first-ever glimpse of the

latest generation of temporary structures – De Boer’s stunningly versatile



new double-decker product offers outstanding flexibility for users, with the

ability to add modular sections up to a total width of 20 metres and a

potentially unlimited length. Other features include transparent side panels, a

choice of internal or external staircases plus optional balconies with tinted

glass “fencing” to allow unobstructed views.


one of the most innovative elements of the multifunctional Premier is the

ability to place a range of De Boer’s other structures on top – offering  an unprecedented choice of configurations for



new product can be combined with a large number of different structures,

ranging from compact Pyramids and Chalets to De Boer’s Alu Halls and Alu Vista.

The versatility of the Premier means that no fewer than four of the structures have

already been reserved for use during the Farnborough International Airshow.


Spruce, Managing Director of De Boer Structures (UK) Ltd, said: “One of De

Boer’s many strengths is its commitment to researching and developing innovative

new products, even in the face of the current challenging economic market.


Premier is a further exciting addition to our event and exhibition product

portfolio, offering tremendous versatility and choice for customers. The early

interest from the Farnborough International Airshow suggests this is going to

be another highly popular structure.”


Premier, which is erected in modules measuring five metres by five metres, will

form part of De Boer’s ‘Vista’ range of

structures, each of which features bold, horizontal panoramic panels. The range

already includes highly popular products such as De Boer’s Emperor, Panorama

Dome and Delta Emperor.


new structure’s appearance at Farnborough will further boost Brackley-based De

Boer’s work at the prestigious biennial event. Construction work is already

well under way to create a huge temporary exhibition venue measuring 90,000

square metres – enough space to accommodate London’s mighty Royal Albert Hall no fewer

than 30 times!


assignment – involving deliveries by more than 200 articulated lorries – will ultimately

create four huge exhibition halls together with a vast array of corporate

hospitality suites, business chalets, public dining areas and a media centre

for the 2010 airshow, which takes place between July 19 and 25.


International Airshow is one of the world's most iconic aviation events. The

first five days of the show are traditionally trade days only, followed by a

weekend where the exhibition is opened to the public. FIA 2008 was a

record-breaking year for business with US$88.7 billion worth of orders

announced during the show which also featured 165 aircraft in static displays

and spectacular flying displays. The public weekend attracted a staggering

153,000 visitors.
