The Olympic games, held high in the mountain ranges of the Canadian province of British Columbia, brought us many exciting and wonderful moments. For the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Canadian government chose a two-story Losberger Emporium Tent installed in the center of the Olympic action. PRO EM under Exhibitgroup/Giltspur hire, orchestrated the Canadian Governments pavilion that would welcome the world.
The tent was a meeting place for Politicians, Canadian athletes, fans and representatives of the media. The strict security controls and checks made this an extremely difficult project. Vince Budetti, PRO EM, reports: "The tent was subject to the highest levels of security, which meant that there were constant delays. While the tent was being erected, it became increasingly clear how tense the situation on the site was: teams of experts searching for bombs, the police, and blocks of streets which had been sealed off - all these were everyday occurrences throughout the installation.
Despite challenges PRO EM expertly approached the project and executed the Emporium 2-story 15m x 30m flawlessly.
