July 07 London City Airport hired 50 Tables when they had their annual “Open Day” for local residents to come in and look around the working airport. Ken Wood, Principle of Boss Promotions said “I was immediately impressed by the convenience of folding picnic tables. I hired 50 for the London City Airport Fun Day which I ran this year on 7 July. They arrived on one truck stacked in easily removable pallets and were rapidly unloaded and assembled. Throughout the afternoon they were all packed to capacity and provided a solid platform for many people from which to watch our Air Show and enjoy the many different foods we had available. At the Event close the truck re-appeared, the tables were re-folded and packed back on the pallets and the whole lot removed in about 20 minutes. My initial view of this superb product was borne out in practice and I would not now use any other kind of picnic table for my events. The manufacturers are to be congratulated on a superb and infinitely practical design.”

Their claim to have 8-seats in eight seconds has certainly not been exaggerated!. The tables were packed with our guests throughout the three days and the tables withstood this continual use without any problems whatsoever.” said Tim Hudson of Black Sheep Events Ltd.
