Event organisers are some of the most hard-working folks on the planet, that much for sure. It takes a very strong, organised human being to take a person, team or company’s vision for an occasion and turn it into an actual, manageable, 3D reality while remaining sane. However, the truly successful event organisers also know that there are certain suppliers they need on speed dial if they want to offer a seamless service.
This normally includes a dependable tent supplier. Here’s are five very important reasons why:
Guest Count Increases Are Unpredictable
In an ideal world, a client would approach you with a firm guest count that had already been confirmed, triple checked and 100% signed off. However, this is seldom the case, and when guest numbers increase unexpectedly, it helps to have a tent supplier on hand who can help you accommodate those unexpected invitees.
VIP Sections May Be Required at Short Notice
Clients can also realise that they need a VIP section a little late in the game. This can cause quite a panic if you suddenly have to reshuffle the flow and layout of the entire event to create a plush, cordoned off space. Once again, a beautiful tent can save the day!
The Weather Can Turn Against You
Outdoor events are all the rage, but the weather can be unpredictable, even at the height of summer when rain should be the least of your concerns. This is why a good tent supplier will provide event organisers with units that feature handy side walls and fire-retardant fabric, so the sides can be closed up and heating/cooling mechanisms put in place to ensure the comfort of the guests in case of inclement weather.
Branded Tents Make for Great Marketing
If you provide organisation support for an annual event, a forward-thinking tent provider will offer your team the option of purchasing branded tents that can be used as static marketing for upcoming occasions. E.g. aerial photography of this year’s event can be used to promote the next year’s.
Tents = Epic Spatial Possibilities
Tents open the scope of possibilities so much further than a conventional static space. For instance, a music festival could be hosted in a tent that runs all around a dam, by connecting multiple tent unit to offer a seamless eventing space, etc.
