The IFAI Tent Rental Division (TRD) announced the winner of the Commercial Tent Rental Award at the 2012 Tent Expo at Las Vegas’s, NY NY Hotel and Casino, last week. Each member of the TRD is invited to submit significant accomplishments from the previous event year. The entries from around the world are then judged by a peer group to determine the winner.

Event Central uses its involvement with several Rental Trade Associations to help bring superior quality products and services to our loyal customers.

Most of the entries were tied to international events or companies for whom the services were provided. We are excited to show you some of the entries, and the story behind the first place winner.

First Place was awarded to Main Attractions, Edison, NJ – A Mid Atlantic company well known for their work in large Clear Span Structures.

First Place went to Main Events for their work at the Statue of Liberty for Coca-Cola's 125th Anniversary

The client, Coca-Cola required a climate controlled, transparent, tented environment where guests enjoyed the anniversary of the company and simultaneously the 125th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty.

The project was held on Liberty Island. No staking was permitted. All equipment required concrete ballasting. The equipment required 11 barges to transport. All work had to be completed in a manner which did not impact park attendance or visitor experience.

Guests had a unique experience starting at departure dock, cruising the Hudson River, dinner and entertainment on the Island and a fireworks display on their return to port.
