When it comes to corporate meetings with out-of-towners, there is no better way to show off the strength of a company than to hold meetings on the corporate campus. It is an opportunity to show off your culture, your technology, your quality, and much more. If you don’t have the indoor conference space to accomplish the task, tents allow you to extend your facility. A well-planned tented event won’t interfere with the day-to-day business at hand. Whether the tent is installed on the front lawn, the warehouse parking lot, or within a large warehouse, tents can help you to establish a finished conference space that allows you to bring your customer to you.  Typical events include:

  • training seminars
  • after-hours chamber mixers
  • new product reveal
  • customer appreciation parties
  • employee picnics

How to decide what you need

Consider what you will be doing under the tent:

  • how many people are to be seated at once?
  • is food & beverage service space required?
  • do you need a stage for speakers?
  • are any special lighting or sound systems required?
  • will you require climate control?

If you can answer these few questions, our qualified Event Specialist can take your requirements and custom design a layout that will maximize the opportunity for your guests to see the company at it’s finest.  We can also provide Local Maven Services when it comes to finding caterers, entertainment, decorators, and a whole host of other services.

The Importance of a Site Survey
 
The Party Rental Store Associate performing a site survey will focus on more than the tent, such as:  where does the water flow when it rains; electric source options; pedestrian flow between the facility and the tent; how it will effect your continuing operations and trucking; how to make the event safe; as well as any ADA compliance issues.  The Rental Store should help find other suppliers of specialty services you might need.

Ask for References
As with any service company, you should be able to see testimonials and pictures, or obtain references from customers who have held events of a similar nature to that which you are planning.  Don’t hesitate to visit the major vendors’ office to see if their staff is professional, and the facility and product is handled professionally.  There is nothing worse than visiting a site 4 hours into an installation, and find the vendor is not providing the quality promised when the event was booked.
