So GL; a global partnership for major events

28 November 2019


SoldOut and GL events UK have launched SO GL, a global collaboration. Announced today at Host City, the partnership combines the two event specialists’ expertise in a new approach to delivering complete solutions for major international events.

Scott Jameson, GL events UK managing director, commented: “This partnership was the natural progression of the two organisations working together to deliver major events including the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. We’ve always held SoldOut in high regard and are delighted to be able to share news of this development.

“Teaming up with SoldOut means we can offer major event organisers the best possible combination of skills, capability and experience, adding outstanding value to global events.”

Thomas Staunton, CEO at SoldOut, added: “SoldOut and GL events UK are complimentary events power-houses, both experts in their own fields.

“SO GL combines both companies’ impressive heritage, experience and successful track record; leading to the very best in communication, shared project management, local knowledge and delivery, event planning and implementation, along with a grass roots commitment to community and event legacy.”

GL events UK is a supplier of temporary structures, tiered and grandstand seating, and stadium construction, providing complete temporary infrastructure and overlay solutions for the world’s best events.

SoldOut is a full-service agency, designing and delivering memorable event experiences throughout Australia and overseas.

The Host City Conference & Exhibition, Glasgow, 26-27 November, brings major stakeholders together to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by the major event hosting industry.

So Giving; Bushfire Appeal for RSPCA NSW

20 November 2019

Supporting Animals And Communities Affected By The Australian Bushfires

As event managers, our goal is to bring people together and make a lasting impression. And, for 26 years, SoldOut has created life-long memories for people across Australia and around the world, through moments of inspiration at events.

Now, as the bushfires which have already been unbelievably challenging for so many people continue to ravage Australia, SoldOut is supporting communities who need a moment of inspiration again.

So, as communities begin to rebuild, we’re doing our bit by helping the thousands of animals affected by the horrific tragedy of these fires, because when natural disasters happen, Australian animals are at their most vulnerable.

We’re supporting RSPCA NSW to collect and deliver essential items like pet food, treats, beds, blankets, toys, cat litter, leads, collars and more to distribute to animals in need on the NSW North Coast.


How it works

1. Tell your colleagues, friends and family you’re collecting essential goods for animals affected by the bushfires. Wish list of essential items listed below.

2. Deliver items to the RSPCA Sydney Shelter or to SoldOut’s warehouse in Sydney, NSW. We ask for items to be delivered by Friday 27 November. Drop off location details below.

If you can’t make a delivery in person, please consider ordering items from Petbarn or Western Pet Supplies which can be delivered to RSPCA NSW or SoldOut on your behalf.

3. RSPCA NSW and SoldOut will distribute all donations to communities most in need throughout the NSW North Coast. 


Alternatively, you can donate to SoldOut’s bushfire appeal with funds raised going towards the RSPCA NSW’s bushfire appeal efforts.


Thank you in advance for your wonderful support, it is greatly appreciated and will provide practical assistance when it is most needed.
