Who doesn’t love a little fresh air? Breathe new energy into your next event or corporate meeting by selecting an outdoor venue. During the spring, summer and early autumn, you can capture the delightful weather, long days, and relaxing nature of the outdoors by taking your guests beyond the standard four walls.
Once the decision has been made to host your event outdoors, there are various factors that you need to consider. Choosing the correct venue can be the most difficult part of the whole planning process. When planning for an outdoor event, there are things to consider:
- The objectives for the event: Knowing your agenda helps set the tone for the type of location, décor, and other amenities needed.
- Space and parking: Pick a suitable location to meet the needs of your guests. Is there enough parking space for guests, suitable accommodation nearby, etc.
- Food and catering for your event: If you’d like people to be able to mingle easily, finger foods may be the best option for your event. Or, if you’re aiming for a more formal event, it is possible to create an elegant dinner setting with a three-course meal option within a partially enclosed or semi-covered space.
- Shade and shelter: Being prepared for unforeseen weather conditions is one of the most important factors of hosting an outdoor event. A stretch tent is a perfect option for an outdoor event.
Stretch tents are a modern way to protect your event from unforeseen weather circumstances. However, most tents cannot be pitched anywhere and require soft ground or a large enough space for a tent structure.
Sky Tents has the perfect solution in the form of our versatile, modern and reasonable priced stretch tents. A stretch tent, commonly known as a Bedouin Stretch Tent, is made of special freeform fabric that can be pulled and stretched over any space. The structure of the tent is made up of pegs, ropes, and poles that are placed and pegged strategically to fit your space. The fabric is then stretched over the poles and pegged in place to create a tent that makes your venue look elegant, laid back and atmospheric.
The use of a stretch tent brings a sense of romance to your event. They are perfect for weddings, parties, corporate functions, fundraisers, exhibitions, private functions at home or any other outdoor event. Imagine your outdoor event under a beautiful stretch canopy whilst your guests mingle and walk over the lush outdoors. Your guests can sip cocktails and snack on canapés on a beautiful summer evening while they enjoy your outdoor event. Add some low lighting, and you are sure to create the perfect atmosphere and capture the essence of a perfect outdoor event.
