Around 10,000 visitors found watch during the day, which makes it the finest best complete skateboard event the United kingdom has observed.

- How was the brief met? The marriage is just one of skate clothing brand Vans' flagship characteristics globally, and possesses been kept within the last six years. After European editions in Turin (2009) and Hamburg (2010), the company felt showed up to just accept event to London, among Europe's key skateboarding towns.

Carrying out a venue are actually sourced, ten of skateboarding's top brands were requested to submit a hurdle design in line with the 2010 theme of Victorian London. The winning obstacles - the Dying Skateboards Ripper Alley, the Cliche Skateboards Tower Bridge along with the Superdead SkateboardsTavern - created the primary focus during the day.

The marriage began at 12pm on Saturday, with every single obstacle being skated so as by 40 in the finest skateboarders in Europe, all competing for the EUR50,000 prize. By 2pm everything was showed up, obtaining a huge screen relaying all of the action for that crowds.

Fortunately it brightened up, allowing something to maneuver forward with no hitches.

The rain, and possibly there might have been more information regarding the Vans brand itself, together with what it really represents. I do not feel I'm any the smarter regarding the products, but maybe getting less sell you was area of the request the marriage.

- The factor which was the best challenge?

The best challenge concerning this project was most definitely the closure of Brushfield Street, because it is a principal access road to Petticoat Lane for the busy Friday market. We launched in to a extended consultation with Transport for London, Tower Hamlets along with the Capital of scotland- London to get this done. For individuals as being a brand, this variation of indoor and out of doors really was imperative that you 'make the event' for the spectators and competitors, so the closure on the street was certainly our primary challenge.

The marriage surpassed our expectations on every quantity of production, so within the brand perspective there is not any stand-out things we'd have altered. Within the run-for the event there's been slight concerns that folks will not have the time to de-rig within the time required and restore industry to being fully operational for Sunday, but Innovision, IOU Ramps and our staff labored hard and then we delivered before deadline with no issues.

For individuals the important thing factor achievement using this event was that folks showcased best skateboard within the truly authentic, downtown London location. We're able to show Old Spitalfields Market in another light, and London located the finest and a lot of credible skateboarding event in Europe this year. Hopefully this could open the doorway for the Vans brand to produce more thrilling encounters across core sports and music within the capital.
