Outdoor parties are usually refreshing and memorable, but you need to choose the right marquee to make yours a successful event. With their signature style, marquees create a ready-made theme for the party. So, without beating about the bush, let’s get into the heart of the matter quickly.

Below, you will learn how you can choose the right marquee tent for your outdoor party:

1. Consider your choices properly
If your requirement involves a room in a field, a marquee is what will suit you the most. Marquees are classic, solid, versatile, and opulent and can be stripped back. They work fine irrespective of whether you are looking for string lights or chandeliers. A marquee offers a large degree of flexibility as it doesn’t have too many poles in the centre.

2. Number of guests
This is a given; still, people fail to consider the number of guests that are going to be in their party. Consequently, the size of the tent they choose may prove to be inadequate in accommodating everyone comfortably, or it may be too large and it may seem that a handful of people are sitting in a large hall, which will also look awkward.

3. Climate
This is another factor, which is surprisingly overlooked by people when it comes to choosing a marquee for outdoor parties. You need to consider both the average climatic and the temporary weather condition in your area and choose the right type of fabric accordingly. Decide whether you need a cold weather marquee or one for warm conditions. Such details will help you make better arrangements.

4. Extra space
The thought of extra space should be on your mind based on the type of event you’re hosting. For example, if a party requires a lot of tables and chairs, you may need a bit of extra space. This factor needs to be considered while zeroing in on the size of a marquee.

5. Quality of the fabric
Ensure that the fabric of the tent is of high quality and durable so that it doesn’t sustain scratches too easily.

6. Make an informed choice
This is again something that people don’t seem to care much about at all and can end up having a disappointing experience because of it. Marquees come in different varieties, offering a lot of flexibility based on your theme. You can choose a traditional marquee, stretch tent, modular pods or any other variant as per your requirement. Ask yourself whether you’re looking for a traditional option or a modern one.

Conclusion
Marquees are like a blank canvas, but when you choose them for a party, it is important to think of the vibe and the overall atmosphere you want to create, and the requirements you have. Whether you’re organising a band party, private party or want to erect a unique wedding venue, marquees make for the most versatile, flexible and beautiful choice for every occasion.

Consumers Are Craving Live Experiences

It is no secret that new technology, specifically anything having to do with the internet, has been driving new marketing strategies these past few years. However, one thing that all marketers agree upon is that live events and experiences continue to be one of the most effective marketing strategies for long-term brand awareness and consumer engagement. In fact, as more people turn toward their mobiles or computers to interact with others, it seems that as a whole, society is craving authentic, live experiences.

branded tents for businesses

Live Events Continuously Rank as One of the Most Effective Marketing Techniques in ANY Marketing Campaign

While there are not a lot of hard statistics to be found concerning New Zealand, specifically – US statistics (Forrester Research) reveals that tradeshows and live events rank as the second most effective marketing technique (the first being a company’s website) for both B2B and B2C campaigns. In fact, 25% of marketing budgets are solely dedicated to in-person events.

P1010721-680x510

Events allow you to engage existing and prospective clientele, generate leads, as well as build and promote your brand. Essentially you are fast-tracking the sales process by creating significant face time with your target audience. So how do you ensure that your brand stands out amongst the competition? Schupepe has you covered. Schupepe marquees are not only durable and flexible- they are also completely weather-proof and absolutely eye-catching.

See below for a list of live events that Schupepe’s corporate clients will be covering this year.

The Basics: Pop Up Tents vs Semi-Permanent Custom Fit Tents

The majority of businesses will choose semi-permanent marquees over pop-up tents – not just because of their aesthetic appeal but because of their durability and the over-all protection that they offer the public – from the elements as well as practical safety issues. While pop-up tents are easily assembled, they do not suit commercial purposes due to the fact that larger crowds require safer, sturdier structures.

Handy Infographic:

Pop-up tents. (2)

What Size Will I Require:

Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. There are a lot of variables involved when deciding the size of tent you will require. Listed below are some guidelines for specific events:

Formal dining: If you are going to use round tables – allow 12 sq ft per person. Rectangular tables will require 10 sq ft per person.

Seminars, lectures, or events – that require auditorium-style seating -should allow for up to 6 sq ft per chair (more if a lot of movement is needed)

Entertainment equipment (DJ’s/Bands/Theatrical/Dance) – basically anything that requires stages, dance floors, or bulky audio-visual/sound equipment – will require more exact measurements

Please note that Schupepe offers Interior Hire Options, Truss Structures and Theatre Flats

Sturdy Material – a Worthy Investment

TAILORED BRANDING SOLUTIONS

Venue owners, event management companies, and corporate sponsors may find that it is more cost-effective to purchase a branded tent from Schupepe if they host numerous events during the year. Your company’s logo can be digitally printed onto the canvas and we offer tailored branding solutions within the tent as well. If you would like to try a temporary branding solution – we offer the use of decals as well. You can use your branded marquee at charity events/fundraisers, expos, marathons, festivals, – basically any type of outdoor promotional event! Many of our clients have found that it is more cost-effective to purchase a branded tent, rather than hire a marquee several times throughout the year.

Eliminate The Guess-Work With 3-D Animation

Schupepe offers its corporate and event management clients a specialised 3-D animation service. Once we have completed our free on-site inspection, we can provide you with a detailed 3-D animation of exactly how a Schupepe marquee will look at your outdoor venue. There will be no doubt as to how impressive a stunning Schupepe canopy will be in any given space.

Can’t Spare the Staff or the Space? Is Time of the Essence?

Schupepe Offers Managed Agreements!

Spend your time promoting your event and leave the maintenance and installation of the tent itself to the experts. We offer our clients a contract that ensures that we will look after your tent and install it when required.

Additional Information!

TRUSS RIGS

A truss rig is basically a framework generally consisting of posts, struts, and rafters that support a roof, or other structure. These types of rigs are ideal for multi-day events such as festivals or corporate branded events. Our truss is able to withstand bulky, heavy equipment, larger lighting structures, and any type of signage or branding that you want to display. Our semi-permanent custom made tents can not only handle four seasons in one day, but it can also withstand a substantial amount of foot traffic.

Interior Options

Schupepe is basically your one stop shop for outdoor events. We provide furniture, lighting, heating, flooring (this include dance floors!), and can provide additional smaller tents if your catering service requires a separate space. We understand that value of time and we do our best to make sure our client’s have everything they need to make their corporate event a success.

As the rest of the world is trading in their beach towels for scarves, Kiwis will be ready to slip, slop, slap and head toward the sea. Schupepe just provided marquees for Auckland University’s Winterfest and we were inspired to make a list of the coolest winter festivals around the world. So if you’ve decided that you just can’t get enough of winter, perhaps you might want to hit up one of these hot…er…cool spots.

sapporo snow festival

1. Sapporo Snow Festival

This festival, held every year over seven days in February, is one of Japan’s largest winter events. More than 2 million people come to see the spectacular ice sculptures and frozen art in Odori Park and Susukino. You can witness the crowning of a new Susukino Queen of Ice during a live beauty contest!

2. Whitefish Winter Carnival

Held in Whitefish, Montana, this is a yearly event filled with a wide variety of winter sports, street and ski parades, and even the annual Penguin Plunge – a dip into the freezing Whitefish Lake. National Geographic has hailed this Carnival one of the top winter events around the world. If you are dying to see how much your body can take before hypothermia takes over, head out to the states in early February for this famous event.

3. Quebec Winter Carnival

No list of winter festivals would be complete without Canada making the list. They have loads of winter events that are quite popular, but this one seems to be the crème de la crème. This festival includes a winter-themed amusement park, snow sled slides, snow rafting and skiing. Generally held in February, artists from around the globe compete – making spectacular snow sculptures.

4. Dartmouth Winter Carnival

This event, which initially began in 1910 as a field day for students, has quickly become one of the most popular festivals in New England. Ice-skating parties and horse-drawn sleigh rides are just some of the traditions that folks around the world have come to enjoy. There are human dogsled races and characters competing in a 3K skiing race wearing nothing but pajamas or capes! It is indeed – a sight to behold.

fur rendezvous

5. Fur Rendezvous

This 10-day celebration held in late February in North America’s coldest state – Alaska – is an amazing event. There will be reindeer. Yes, actual reindeer! There is a famous frostbite footrace, along with snowshoe softball and sled dog races. The Fur Rendezvous in Alaska has been named the largest winter festival in North America!

While we may not get any snow in Auckland, we still know how to throw a good winter festival! The students at Auckland University did a great job with Winterfest this year. There was incredible carnival food, games, acrobatics, and an awesome set by P Money. Schupepe was happy to provide the marquees for the festival. It was a tricky rig because the location is considered “historic” and as such, we were not allowed to peg into the ground or tie off guy-ropes to any structures, buildings, walls, or poles. This meant we had to hire in a hiab-truck and bring in 12 x 1 tonne concrete weights in order to tie the tent/ropes effectively. We love thinking outside of the box. Our crew did a great job and the event went off without a hitch!

GUIDE TO BUYING OR HIRING A STRETCH TENT http://www.schupepetents.co.nz/guide-to-buying-or-hiring-a-stretch-tent/ Tue, 05 May 2015 23:18:04 +0000 http://temp1001.seopro.co.nz/?p=6523 The post GUIDE TO BUYING OR HIRING A STRETCH TENT appeared first on .

CORPORATE FUNCTIONS
Corporate functions usually host a large number of guests. Schupepe stretch tents are interchangeable; therefore, you can buy or hire several small and medium size tents that seamlessly attach together. This creates an environment that is suitable for a wide variety of events, especially if you are uncertain how many people may attend.

We can digitally impose your company’s logo onto your tents, allowing your brand to stand out from the crowd. And we also provide interior options such as flooring, lighting, heating, and furniture so that you do not have to micro-manage several different vendors.

Climate and the location of the venue are not obstacles when choosing a stretch tent as our Freeform Flex fabric is 100% waterproof and flexible.

PRIVATE FUNCTIONS
We have the perfect tent for every type of event that you can dream up. You can let your imagination run wild and we can make it happen.

We have got you covered for private functions such as weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, engagement parties, etc… Neutral colours and small- to medium- sized tents are generally what people in the private sector require for their events.

And our tents are 100% weatherproof, so the bride and groom – or the birthday boy or girl, will not have their parade ruined by the rain.

Schupepe Tents can take care of everything so that the person hosting the event can have some fun too. The host will not have to worry about catering or having enough chairs or silverware because we have interior hire options and can provide everything needed to ensure your event runs smoothly.

The History Of The Bedouin Tent And Why Our Tents Reflect Their Design http://www.schupepetents.co.nz/the-history-of-the-bedouin-tent-and-why-our-tents-reflect-their-design/ Tue, 05 May 2015 22:38:56 +0000 http://temp1001.seopro.co.nz/?p=6499 The post The History Of The Bedouin Tent And Why Our Tents Reflect Their Design appeared first on .

]]>

Bedouin tents, black tents, or houses of hair have been a symbol of hospitality in the harsh terrain of the Arabic deserts for centuries. The Bedouin people believed that every traveler should be given shelter and protection from the relentless elements for at least three days.

Bedouin-Tent-480x396The desert is a harsh place with vegetation covering less than ten percent of the land. Desert dwellers are lucky to receive more than twenty-five centimeters of rain per year. In order to survive, the Bedouins led a nomadic life style. Their survival depended on being able to move quickly and efficiently given the unpredictable nature of their environment. This required their tents to be quickly and easily assembled and disassembled, and not cumbersome or heavy to transport.

Which is why our Freeform™ Tents are especially modeled on the Bedouin design. Not only are they quick and easy to install and disassemble, but they also reflect the unique eye-catching and parabolic form of the Bedouin tents; and their flexible design allows for versatility and creativity when it comes to set up and installation. Using poles of varying lengths, our tents and marquees can be installed anywhere and on any kind of terrain – you are literally only limited by your imagination. And, like the original  Bedouin tents, our tents are made from exceptionally resilient material that will protect you from all the elements.

Make a memorable impression with your next event with stylish tents and marquees from Schupepe Tents. We have a tent solution for every occasion – from romantically themed weddings (our specialty), to corporate events that are all about business ,and private parties and festivals that are all about fun!

Schupepe Tents is passionate about the environment. Most of us here in New Zealand of us were raised to be “tidy Kiwis”, and we have passed this love and need to protect out beautiful country on to our children. Eco-friendly events are more important than ever, now that we all have a better awareness of our carbon footprint. Make your event eco-friendly with the following tips:

Go Paperless!

There are various ways to use electronic forms of communication to invite or inform people of your event. The fewer items in print or on paper means that there will be less waste is created.

Recycle – The Easiest Way To Reduce Waste.

Buy items in bulk so that there is less packaging to dispose of. Use as many reusable items as you can from linens to serving dishes. Opt for drink items that have the least amount of glass bottles or aluminum cans. Make sure that there are enough recycle bins that are appropriately labeled to make it easier on your guests to do the right thing.

Waste Not, Want Not…

There is generally a lot of leftovers that can be given to charities after the event. Food that cannot be given away can certainly be used for composting. Even decorations can be given away to guests at the end of the event instead of being thrown away.

There Are So Many Ways To Keep It Green.

Use as much natural light as you can or use LED lights to save on electricity. Encourage car-pooling or provide mass transportation to and from your event.

And Last But Not Least…

Schupepe Tents can provide you with the option of buying your own tent to reuse or hiring a tent that we will reuse. It is a win-win either way. We have high-quality, weather-proof, environmentally-friendly tents and sustainable catering options to make your tented event as green as you want it to be.

From 4 March 2015 Auckland will be transformed as the 19-day Auckland Arts Festival kicks off in an explosion of theatre, music, comedy, cabaret, dance and visual arts!

More than 100 world class shows and exhibitions from NZ and around the world will astound, entertain and delight audiences across the region.

International stars include Ninah Cherry, South African award winning director Brett Bailey’s “arresting and utterly original” opera, macbEth; the “astonishing vision” of acclaimed British choreographer and dancer Akram Khan’s iTMOi (in the mind of igor); the “highly physical, superhero” world of BLAM!; New York City’s acclaimed Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet; the “spectacular and inspiring” story of the father of Afrobeat, Fela Kuti, direct from Broadway, Fela! The Concert; and the best party between heaven and hell, the fiery circus cabaret LIMBO ….. and many more!

Along with independently produced and presented local talent from around the country, the Auckland Arts Festival will be co-producing and presenting works with a number of New Zealand artists and companies, including world premieres from new New Zealand, and work by Maori, Pacific and Asian artists.

The team at Schupepe Tents are excited to be involved with this event, and this week we’re busy building our small tented village on Aotea Square in preparation for the opening of the festival on March 4th 2015.

Prana Eco Retreat is based at Opoutere/Ohui, alongside a 5km long pristine piece of Eastern Coromandel coastline.

They are a family run venue for the New Year Festival, smaller summer Events, Weddings, group Workshops and personal Retreats.

Prana land is a peaceful sanctuary where people naturally move towards transformational healing, personally and universally. A place that empowers a strong sense of ‘connectedness’ to something great: A gathering place for kindred souls!

Their philosophy is based on the vision that a conscious culture is best facilitated when people are positively encouraged to discover the best in themselves and others through individual and collective creativity, healthy attitudes, self development and being in tune with Nature. The more we focus our energies on shaping our shared future, the more joy and fun we can create! We like to think of it as a place where “…creativity meets awareness”

For each respective Prana event, our guiding force is this philosophy, and it leads us to a connection with everything that is greater than ourselves – whether we practice yoga, meditation, dance, gardening, singing or any other art form!

Schupepe Tents was proud to be asscoiated with the Prana Festival this year, with our tents providing cover for both entertainers and festival-goers alike! Take a look…
