Land Rover Polo in the City Marquee

“The team developed a fabulous Miami inspired theme in 2016 which matched the style of the Range Rover Evoque hero car perfectly, complete with an in-ground ‘pool’!”

Event Brief

For the third year in a row, Event Planet was once again delighted to design and produce the Land Rover Marquee at the 2016 Land Rover Polo in the City Series. On tour over five capital cities, the newly released Range Rover Evoque was the inspiration and Event Planet was briefed to bring summer living to life with a Miami Poolside theme – all about fun in the sun!

Event Planet responded with a bespoke and unique design featuring a central cocktail bar serving mojito’s complete with pink flamingo swizzle sticks and a Mexican inspired food station serving delectable tacos throughout the day. Overhead, the black and white retro canvas awning was a focal point of the chic design and was complemented by matching market umbrellas, poolside furniture and decor.

Two cabanas with billowing draping and day lounges featured either side of the bar with magnificent tropical fuchsia florals used throughout the space, intermingled with pineapples, shells, feature palms and foliage. The hero of the marquee design was an inbuilt pool which had a clear perspex top allowing guests to walk on top of the water.

Reinforcing the Land Rover presence at the event as the naming right sponsor, Event Planet integrated the Miami theme through the feature entrance at the arrival marquee which showcased oversized tropical palm silhouettes and Land Rover branding that instantly set the stylish scene.
