Pop up pavilion at Pier Head

Visitors to Liverpool have got a new perspective on the world famous Pier Head.

A giant glass-sided marquee was trialled for hospitality for the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) annual conference.

The 18,000 sq ft pavilion took a week to build by events organisers Orion.

The light, contemporary, light and spacious structure even boasted indoor waterfalls.

Judith Feather, Liverpool City Council’s head of events and cultural infrastructure, said: “It is important that the city does not stand still on what it offers conferences, which is why it’s exciting Orion is pioneering the Pier Head as a site for pop-up conference and corporate hospitality.

“This event has the potential to further enhance Liverpool’s event offering and attract a whole new audience from all over the world.”

Liverpool Convention Bureau hopes the marquee will provide a model for future events at Liverpool landmarks.
