5 top tips for a winning special event tent
A great special event tent should provide a space that is not only attractive and functional, but defines the success of your great occasion.
Follow these top tips on choosing the right specification and make your special event tent even more special..
1. Make sure your event tent supplier's expertise goes beyond just "tents"
Experienced advice makes all the difference between a "nice" event and a "truly memorable" one. Make sure your special event tent supplier has plenty of expertise in their business and ask them what has worked in the past, along with any ideas they think will work for you.
2. Choose a special theme for your special event tent
Consider choosing a tent in a colour that complements the theme of your event.
Tentickle offers nine standard colours for special event tent hire, and customised colour matching for tent purchase. Just bear in mind that different colours can have varying effects. For example, pure white can be very difficult to keep clean, while blue or green can make beautiful food look, well, blue or green.
You can also individualise your event tent with exclusive and customised Stretch Décor, made in the same stretch material as your tent.
If you're considering a corporate event tent, be sure to ask in advance if you'd like branding applied inside or externally, or both. And remember to ask whether your company's or your sponsor's corporate colours can be complemented with matching customised décor.
3. Think about the weather beforehand
Even though a good special event tent will protect your guests from wind, rain or sun, you should consider what to do if the weather improves on the day.
Unlike a marquee tent, a Tentickle bedouin tent can be converted from full tent to canopy style (or vice versa) quickly, to take advantage of good weather.
4. Make sure you have skilled riggers on hand
A skilled rigging team will make sure your tent is pitched and secured properly, with quality and security checks to eliminate any mishaps. They will also know what secondary factors could influence your special event and advise you on these accordingly.
You should also keep a rigging team on stand-by if you need to modify your special event tent (see point 3).
5. Think about environmental factors
Ask yourself questions like, how will it really feel inside the tent? Will it look attractive in its chosen setting? and, will there be any environmental impact? It's always better to leave happy people behind when you're done with your special event tent.
