One of the things you need to think about when planning an event is picking out equipment to use, particularly a tent. Tents can add some flair to your event in addition to protecting your party from inclement weather. Read on to figure out what tent is best for your upcoming event!
What are the Different Types of Tents that GCP Offers?
Grand Central Party Rental offers a variety of tents for all occasions, so you never have to worry about finding the perfect tent for your event. With an assortment of colors, sizes, and styles, GCP can help you find the right tent for you, no matter what you need.
- Standard frame tent: The standard frame tent is the original party tent. This style is designed for short-term rentals and is great for backyard parties, catering kitchens, or festival booths. This tent comes in various smaller sizes ranging from 10′ x 10′ to 20′ x 50′.
- Keder frame tent: The keder frame tent is larger than the standard frame tent, with sizes ranging from 30′ x 30′ to 50′ x 120′. Kedered frame tents are designed for both short-term and long-term rentals and are one of the most versatile structures on the market. This tent also comes in clear or white, so you can choose the best color for your party.
- Pole tent: This tent features a pole holding up the vinyl top in the tent’s interior and supporting poles forming sweeping peaks. Pole tents are excellent for large outdoor events, corporate events, fairs, and festivals. Pole tents come in an array of larger sizes (40′ x 40′ – 60′ x 120′), so you can fit everyone on your guest list.
- Marquee walkway tent: These tents are more narrow than the other tents coming in sizes from 10′ x 10′ to 10′ x 60′. They make an excellent formal entrance walkway into larger tents, are great for connecting tents with a permanent structure, or cover an existing walkway.
How to Choose the Right Tent for Your Event?
Deciding on the right tent for your event can be challenging, but there are different standards you can use to ensure you’re choosing the best option.
When picking out a tent, the size and type of event you’re hosting is the first thing to consider. If you’re hosting a smaller, more casual affair like a backyard barbeque, a standard frame tent or a Keder tent will suit your needs. However, a pole tent is right for you if you’re hosting a more significant, formal event like a wedding.
Another thing to consider is the venue of your event. If your event is primarily outdoors, the tent will be a centerpiece for your event and will protect you from any potential weather problems. In these cases, it’s best to pick a standard frame tent, Keder tent, or pole tent. However, if your event is primarily indoors and the tent is a smaller part of your event, then a walkway tent might be the best option for you.
No matter what event you’re hosting, GCP has tent options to suit you and your needs.
