After many years of planning and architectural drawings it was an incredible moment when we broke ground on the new stand in September last year. Since then the world has gone a bit topsy-turvy and the events industry has faced one of its biggest challenges ever but for us there is a shinning light of steel and concrete rising out of the ground at The Kia Oval.
Our fantastic construction company has continued to toil away on the new stand, dubbed One Oval Square, while having to dramatically change the way they work to ensure social distancing but the hard work has not stop and it shows.
We now have the shell of the stand proudly positioned next to the pavilion. The sheer size of the 6m high ceiling and almost 800m2 room on the first floor is slowly coming together.
I know that the events industry may look different for a while, but I know that an industry with so much talent, creativity, and perseverance in it will bounce back strong. And One Oval Square will be there waiting.
The new stand is still set to be open in mid-2021 and we are currently taking bookings from September onwards in what will be an amazing addition to the event space at The Kia Oval.
