Staging an outdoor event in the urban public environment is a great commercial activity for any local authority. Attracting more and more people to make use of public space not only boosts the commercial viability of our town centres, but it also helps to create a sense of community and well-being in any urban development. Music festivals, carol concerts, exhibitions, markets: all of these help to create a thriving local economy.
However, one of the regular problems with holding successful outdoor events is that of electricity supply. Ensuring that a constant power supply is maintained when and where it is necessary is a constant headache for any events management team. Well, the issue may no longer be a problem as these latest power units, seen left and below, hit the UK market. Manufactured by Pop uP Power Supplies Ltd, the units provide efficient electricity supply for the outside environment.
|The immediate benefit of this type of equipment seems to be the discreetness of their installation. With the current minimalist trend in landscape design for our towns and cities, the fully retractable units can be stored safely underground until they are needed - and you wouldn't even know they were there, thanks for the unique way in which they can be "paved over".|
