Amazing Corporate Event Tent Rentals (With Pictures)

Corporate event tent rentals have to check off all the boxes: functional, impressive, comfortable (for guests), and a protective covering to keep guests out of the unpredictable Chicago weather. Every event has different boxes, which is why there are different types of tents for rent that are up to the task—-plus can check off any other boxes on an event planning checklist. (As an added bonus, this list is just the start of tents available for corporate events; contact event planning professionals to match your event with the right tent and event planning accessories.)

Tent Rentals

Frame Tents

Frame tents are perfect for:

  • corporate venues with limited space for the tent,
  • tent installations over decks, patios, driveways,
  • tents set up adjacent to other structures or buildings.

One of the biggest benefits of a frame tent is that there are no center poles that obstruct guests’ view or the set-up of equipment rentals inside the tent. While there is framework visible on the interior, the metal can be covered by décor and event lighting. With minimal staking or weights, frame tents can be set up over almost any surface.

Pole Tents

Pole tents add an upscale look to any corporate event. With a wide variety of sizes, these versatile tents provide a classic look with an affordable event that fits within the corporate event budget. As the name implies, pole tents are supported with center and side poles anchored into the ground.

High Peak Century Tents

With high cathedral ceilings, these tents makes guests say, “wow.” This beautiful first impression is a huge hit with guests, making it perfect for formal corporate events. The maximum ceiling height is an ideal canvas for grand décor and lighting.

Clearspan Tents

These tents allow the durability of a poled tent without poles. Clearspan tents are perfect for corporate event venues where staking is not possible or when the tent is needed for the long-term. Without poles, these structures feel open with unobstructed views. Every square inch of the space can be maximized for optimal use.

Marquee Tents

Marquee tents are functional, attractive, and come in a variety of sizes. Corporate event guests appreciate the added protection from the weather. These tents can be used for small tent affairs, walkways, entrances, or any other corporate event. For added protection, marquee tents can be installed with sidewalls for an all-encompassing atmosphere.
