The IFAI Tent Rental Division (TRD) show was held this Winter in Orlando, FL. Every other year the TRD holds a “Tent Install Expo.” At the show, the tent and accessory vendors featured their product lines for the Tent and Event Rental community to see and touch. Companies interested in learning more about the mechanics of each tent had the opportunity to assist in the setup and/or take down for some hands on experience. Here are some highlights from the show that were on display.
The recently released Tent Ballasting Study was a major area of interest to the attendees. The Sunday seminar provided basic theory on the concept of ballasting. A later seminar included a hands on session using the new online ballast tool which was developed by IFAI in conjunction with Clemson University. Outdoors there were static displays including a new ballasting system.
The final evening the TRD held an outdoor tent party. The event included full tent lighting, games, several buffet stations, and entertainment for all. It was a great opportunity for the tent community get together and enjoy spending time with their peers.
