Hey, we're at the Showman's Show '16.

We are happy to confirm that we will be exhibiting at the Showman's Show 2016 this October. The Showman's Show is an important event for our industry, with marquee and textile manufacturers from all over the world coming to the Newbury Showground to present their new ideas, products and services.

At Shield, we have prepared a number of new and exciting products that we are going to showcase during the show, while presenting the latest additions to our product portfolio. We will also bring physical samples of our repairs products. These little bits and pieces will also be available to purchase right at our stand.

To find out more about these new exciting products, about our offers and to discuss everything Shield – visit us at Avenue C, stand 172.

The Showman's Show 2016 will be held between 19th and 20th of October at the Newbury Showground in Chieveley, Berkshire.

Check out our Showman's Show 2015 hub!

We wanted to do something different for the Showman's Show 2015. That's why there's a dedicated hub will all the relevant information and functionality we happened to think of at.

Here's some of the thing you'll find there:

  • Our stand number there (it's Stand 173 on Avenue C, by the way). 
  • Our feedback form - the Show can get busy sometimes, so if you can't get to meet us in person - just use the form and we'll get back to you.
  • Prices page - for the equipment on sale. This will be available on the day of the show.

Also, here's our gallery - where you'll find images of our stand and products at the exhibition.

That's just a few of the things you'll find there.

We're at Showman's Show 2015.

Our team is attending the Showman's Show 2015 this year. Our stand is 173, Avenue C. We've prepared all sorts of goodies for you:

  • Our gutter attachment system - the dead simple and effective solution for the problem marquee erectors hate the most (fitting a rain-proof gutter).
  • Our curved roof beams - due to interest from our customers, we made a curved roof beam. At the moment, it's compatible with 94 mm profile/4-channel framework. Some people have used them to extend a 9 m frame into a 12 m.
  • Besides, most of the standard products will be there - including the standard 94mm and 114mm framework (both the 2.3 m and the 3 m equipment)  and a variety of PVC covers.

This time around, though, we are going to make the equipment we've used at the Showman's Show available for purchases. We're going to make the prices available next week - however, should you have any questions - just let us know (our phone is 0121 772 2284 or just email us and Max will get back to you ASAP).

See you at the Showman's Show!



Today we added a Gallery section to our website - where we are going to showcase some of the marquees we've built. It's going to be especially useful to someone who is actually considering buying something unusual - a coloured marquee, perhaps.

Shield is happy to provide CMS-C Options on all of the standard range of PVC covers - for example, the top marquee in the CMS-C Gallery is using silver/black 2-coloured PVC option. The customer requested it specifically as the intended use of this marquee is a stage - hence the inner blackout for that special rock'n'roll atmosphere.

Other 2 marquees we have in the gallery so far are yellow and blue. Unfortunately, while we did structures with other colours as well - we didn't have pictures of them to share with you. But, looking forward, we will certainly try to take as many pictures of these marquees as we can.

So, we hope you'll enjoy it.

P.S.: Just in case you are interested in a marquee with coloured PVC - contact us and we'll help you out!
