Preparing for an outdoor event

Written by Fiona

Are you planning an outdoors event, know someone who is, or thinking about a career in event planning?

Planning any kind of outdoor event, whether for a sporting or charity event, or a wedding, can take a lot of work and time, cost a fair bit especially when there is also expenditures like the venue and leave a lot of mess.

That said, event planning can be made considerably simpler by making use of event tents, marquees and temporary structures.

Tents and temporary buildings also open up your hosting opportunities. Larger scale outdoor events such as music festivals often make use of tents in order to provide alternative venues for entertainment and a dry, warm place to sit for a while.

You should also consider the use of event tents in order to create a convenient venue for your event. It eliminates the need to barter with managers of town halls and other public spaces, giving you more creative control.

Temporary structures are also perfect for pop-up or one off events, too, providing you with a more cost-effective and appealing venue that can simply be put up and taken down again.

Another bonus of finding the right temporary building is that it will prepare you for a great outdoors-style event, whatever the weather. Ensuring that the guests at your event are protected in the event of a downpour is very important. A good quality tent, marquee or temporary structure will ensure guests remain dry and the event continues smoothly.

Check out Neptunus and other companies that specialise in temporary buildings, marquees and event tents that can be used for any event, large or small. For the next event you plan, consider the new alternative and see how it goes.
