Need To Cover Your Restaurant Patio Or Deck?March 10, 2023
In our opinion, the best tent for an event is the Snowpeak tent by MTT Structures International. However, the answer is not as simple as you might think. In fact, one needs to consider a range of factors relating to your event before you can definitively land on the best tent for your event. In this article we unpack the three most important questions to ask about your event when choosing an event tent, and look at the three most popular event tents we sell and hire out.
What event are you hosting?
The first question to ask yourself is: what event are you hosting? Some events are more suited to specific tents than others. For example, an intimate wedding reception won’t require the same event tent that a music concert will require. Likewise, a trade fair will need a different event tent to a community meeting held by a municipality.
How many people are attending?
This is probably the most important question to answer when choosing an event tent for your next event. If you choose a tent that is too small, you’ll inevitably run out of seating space and will have to turn people away. If you choose a tent that is made to host way more people than you are expecting, you’re wasting your money.
What is the climate like?
Another vital question to ask when selecting the best event tent for your needs revolves around the climate present at the location and time of year that your event will be held. If there’s a good chance that rain is going to interrupt your event, you’ll likely choose a different event tent to one that is suited to dry, rain-free climates.
MTT Structures International’s most popular event tents
- The Snowpeak
You get regular events tents, and then you get the impressive Snowpeak event tent! This structure brings the WOW factor in a big way, regardless of the event you’re hosting. The framed walling system offers a neater look when choosing both solid or fabric walling options. There are also no anchoring ropes for your event’s attendees to trip over.
The peaks have been designed to ensure airflow through the structure while retaining a breathtaking aesthetic. With a tensile roof structure extending from the peaks to the floor, the Snowpeak event tent is extremely stable in any weather and deflects rain well away from the tent’s sides and entrances.
- The Everest
The Everest event tent is an upgraded version of the below-mentioned Alpine tent. Spacing of the side poles are at equal distances around the perimeter of this tent which allows for different types of tent walling to be attached with more predictable entrances and exits when planning your event. The tent’s roof extends over the perimeter to prevent any leaking between the roof and the walling should it rain.
This also diverts rain away from the walling and prevents it from causing trouble with the side poles. The opening at the top of the Everest event tent’s main pole makes use of a Lattice beam construction. This allows for versatility in placing sound systems and lighting rigging for your event. The top of the main pole is far wider than that of the Alpine as this then allows for better convectional air flow and a cooler event overall. Also, the Everest tent is designed to withstand severe winds.
- The Alpine
The Alpine event tent boasts many unique advantages over regular event marquees. Not only because it’s more aesthetically appealing and stable, but because it’s more practical too. There is constant two-directional tension throughout the Alpine’s roof section, making it a very stable event tent in any weather.
This fact reduces flapping during your event which keeps noise to a minimum when the wind blows heavily. The Alpine event tent was originally designed, manufactured, and named by MTT Structures International and should not be confused with copycat Alpine tents with similar names and shapes.
