Engineers from Neptunus put the structure up in just three days

The music industry’s biggest names entered the Ahoy Arena through a 1400 square-metre VIP walkway protecting stars from the elements as they posed for photographs before the star-studded event.

The Alure Globe hall, built by technicians from Northampton had a transparent roof and glass sides to ensure fans and the world’s media all got excellent views of the celebrities.

A ten-strong team from Neptunus took just three days to erect the facility which incorporated heating and air conditioning systems.
