Add glamour with a glass marquee

While marquees create an amazing ambience for any outdoor event, a glass marquee tent will add just so much more glamour to your function, wedding, gala evening or special celebration.

A glass marquee with a clear roof or panels will immerse your guests in nature, as you are surrounded by beautiful uninterrupted views and starry skies. Let’s look at five more reasons why it’s a great idea to hire a glass marquee tent for your outdoor event.

1.    Glass marquees are spacious

With its clear side panels and roof, a glass marquee will give your guests a feeling of spaciousness. Your venue will seem much larger than it might actually be, which creates a great open-air ambience.

2.    An immersive experience

A glass marquee immerses guests in a dream setting, surrounded by spectacular views, while still being protected from the weather.

3.    Modern take on conventional marquee tents

If you’re looking for a more on-trend venue for your event than the conventional marquee, hire a glass marquee. Its clean, clear lines create a more modern feel, while still being versatile enough to use with a vintage conservatory theme.

4.    Flexible in size and design 

The frame structures of glass marquee make them a flexible marquee hire option. The glass marquee can easily shrink or grow to fit your amount of guests and desired layout. You can also decide to have only certain sections of your glass marquee be clear, with other areas being covered.

5.    Easy to erect by a professional team 

Glass marquees can be erected by a professional team on a level surface, where it can be secured properly by pegs, concrete or water ballast.
