When you mention Ingliston in Edinburgh you could be forgiven for immediately thinking about the Royal Highland Show; after all, it is a world renowned agricultural show that attracted almost 190,000 visitors over the 4-day event in 2016. However, Ingliston’s proper name is, Royal Highland Centre, one of the busiest event venues in Scotland and Spectrum Service Solutions is delighted to announce this fantastic facility is our latest contract win and most recent new client.
The contract was won in a competitive tender and will see Spectrum provide a range of cleaning and waste management services for the venue and many events it hosts every year.
The Royal Highland Centre is a truly unique venue offering over 18,000m² of covered exhibition space encompassing four halls, substantial outdoor areas including 110-acres of parkland, the main arena, a unique track area and parking for 20,000 vehicles – hardly surprising then that plays host to over 200 events and attracts over 1,000,000 visitors every year.
The contract win is great news for the company, but in particular for the Events division. The contract win further enforces Spectrum’s position as the leading provider of cleaning and waste management services to the event industry. We are pleased to be building on our portfolio of event venues which already includes Hampden Park in Glasgow, and to be adding to the list of events where we provide our services which have included the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow (7 venues), the Ryder Cup Matches at Gleneagles, the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and the Kiltwalk.
We are looking forward to working with the team at the Royal Highland Centre and to another busy year for our Events division, we have many big events coming up which we will be announcing over the next few weeks.
