Bournemouth International Centre, Bournemouth
Bournemouth International Centre, the largest conference and exhibition venue in the Southern region, require an impressive real ice rink measuring 750 sqm in size. With our experience, we can handle almost any request and are pleased to be repeatedly contracted to supply their festive installation.
With our reputation and track record, we were happy to provide the highest standard of genuine ice rinks to our client. Our industry leading technology and ability to provide a fully bespoke rental package to our client ensured we are able to fulfill their needs.
As in previous years, Icescape installed the large ‘Cool Coast Ice Rink’ in Purbeck Hall at BIC, which provided plenty of space for approximately 400 people to skate at any one time. Alongside this, we provided a nursery rink for the little ones.
As far as ancillary equipment goes, skate aids and skates were also delivered. The skating aids were provided to help younger skaters, and those who are less confident. There was also disabled access, with room for wheelchair users to be on the ice during public sessions.
Due to the size of the rink, Icescape also provided an ice resurfacer in order to smooth the surface of the rink after each group of skaters leave, ensuring that it remains in perfect condition for the next group of customers.
If you are looking to hire a rink yourselves, the Ice resurfacer is optional, as trained staff can be hired to use manual snow scrapers for maintenance. However it is recommended that motorised resurfacers are hired for larger rinks to increase efficiency on the rink, and allow a consistent turnaround of customers.
