In 2017 Porsche GB approached Freestone to find a creative solution to hosting up to 100 of the World’s Press to witness the World Premiere launch of the Mighty 911 GT2 RS (see earlier blog), at the 4 day Goodwood Festival of Speed.
With accommodation close to the popular Goodwood event, a near impossibility for so many guests (hence the title of the blog), it called for a different approach.
A plot of land next to the event was secured onto which we would install 100 modular temporary festival style bedrooms, shipped from Holland and to accompany this we would also go on to build a VIP hospitality venue – creating a ‘Hotel’ lobby, lounge, eating areas and a working kitchen etc. We would then go on to include a large bathroom block with many showers / toilets and other facilities. To top it all off we created an outside ‘Pub Garden’ chill-out style venue, where we had lounge seating, fire pits, covered areas and a Live band playing. All went to plan with the guests having a fantastic time, sampling one of Britain’s best events.
