Whatever the occasion or weather, a marquee tent will transform any outdoor event into an amazing experience. But where do you start? Here are some considerations when renting a marquee tent, from choosing the right marquee, to the delivery, installation and dismantling of your marquee. 


3 Things to consider when renting a marquee

Type of event

The marquee you choose will depend on the type of event you’re hosting – whether you need an outdoor venue for a wedding, special birthday, corporate event, year-end function, matric farewell, awards ceremony or more. 

Number of guests

The size of your marquee tent and seating specifications will also depend on the type of outdoor event you plan on hosting and the number of guests.
