Layher-MKIF-GantryIPS are proud to have supplied various structures for the 2012 Milton Keynes International Festival, including a Layher Front of House Position and Projection Tower, a Layher Entrance Gantry, along with various sized Stages, Lighting & Viewing Platforms. With the sun finally making an appearance onsite, the Layher entrance gantry has been installed in one part of Campbell Park, and then moved to a second location to promote different events on the site.

Muddy-LiteDeckEverything has been really busy here at IPS over the last few weeks. We have been rushed off our feet working on loads of different event sites for various different clients, and supplied hundreds and hundreds of staging decks all over the country. We have even run out of staging a couple of times, with over a thousand staging modules out on hire over the last few weekends. From the Milton Keynes Bowl to Hyde Park to Skegness and Luton we really have been all over the place!

JubileeIPS has had a very busy week with both new and existing customers involved in events all over the country – and IPS providing essential technical event infrastructure. A record number of trucks, vans, cars and Artics have been loaded over the last few days – thank you to all our customers for their understanding during a very busy time. Also, huge thanks to the dedicated team of IPS technicians who have been working all hours throughout the UK, as well as the unsung heros holding the fort in the warehouse.


IPS has kicked off the summer in style with the Prolyte CLT XL 16m x 14m Outdoor Roof Structure.
