What Are Event Tents Called?

Many individuals have been puzzled as to what an event tent actually is. Maybe big marquees or canopies come to mind. In fact, event tents have many names. The final name of event tents mainly depend on their sizes, form, and intended use. A variety of tent sizes and styles are appropriate for events of varied sizes and kinds, ranging from little canopies to enormous marquees. For example, pop-up tents, which are famous for being easy to erect, are ideal for short-term social events or business exhibits.

Furthermore, clear span tents or frame tents are the best choices for larger events which need more roomy interiors because they provide unrestricted indoor area, especially, in weddings, exhibits, or sizable banquets. Stretch tents are popular because of the flexibility and distinctive designs, which enable them to be customized to match precisely the needs of a location and produce an attractive atmosphere for events. The range of tent styles displays the organizers' ingenuity and attention to detail in addition to reflecting the size and character of the event. So, what factors should you take into account while selecting an event tent for a hundred people?

In today's event landscape, the grandeur of large event tent structures stands unparalleled. From corporate events to weddings, these structures not only offer shelter but also set the ambiance, making the occasion memorable. But when it comes to hosting a significant number of guests, say 100, how do you ensure that your tented venue is spacious enough? Let's dive into the specifics of choosing the right tent size and the potential events suitable for such a gathering.

The Importance of Choosing The Right Tent Size

Comfort Guaranteed

The size of your tent is crucial to the success of your event as it is directly related to the comfort of your guests. A guest may feel constrained and unpleasant if the accommodations is too tiny where there is traffic congestion. It could even be difficult for consumers to move around without difficulty in an overcrowded venue, which could ruin their experience at the event. 

Rather, selecting the right dimension for your tent will make certain that those who visit have plenty of room to walk around, making them feel at ease and at ease. The broad footprint not only facilitates it being easier for participants to get involved in the event, but it also makes participants happier and adds to the festive atmosphere. In order to make sure that your visitors can fully enjoy the event, significant consideration must be made to their comfort while determining the size of the tent.

Safety Consideration

When considering tent size, safety considerations should not be overlooked. The size of the tent is closely related to the safety of the event. If the tent is too small, it will cause crowding, may block safe evacuation routes, and increase safety hazards. In the case of crowded people, even if an emergency occurs, it will affect the evacuation speed of people and increase safety risks. 

On the contrary, choosing an appropriately sized tent can keep safe evacuation routes clear and ensure that guests can evacuate quickly and orderly in the event of an emergency. In addition, a tent of appropriate size can provide a safe place of refuge, provide guests with shelter from wind and rain, and ensure their safety in unexpected situations. Therefore, safety considerations are crucial when choosing a tent size to ensure that guests are fully protected during the event.

Atmosphere Creation

The event tent pair can bring a good atmosphere experience to the guests. You can customize the tent according to your needs and tell the tent you want. We have very high requirements for the design of tents, which are in line with popular taste in terms of aesthetics.

 If you need an event tent with an event theme, we can also design it for you. In our careful design and layout, we combine local characteristics to give guests the ultimate atmosphere experience. Our tents are large enough for guests to move freely inside, allowing them to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the tent and feel the atmosphere of the event, allowing every guest to have a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

Additional Amenities

When considering tent size, in addition to considering the type and characteristics of the event, you also need to fully consider the area occupied by audio-visual equipment, lighting equipment, and decorative elements related to the event. These devices and elements can have a significant impact on the space required and should not be ignored. While lighting technology consists theatrical lighting, lighting for indoors, etc., audiovisual gear comprises systems for sound, projection devices, monitors, etc. 

For these electronic devices to work well and generate what is expected for the event, more space can often be required when installing and rearranging them. A certain percentage of room will also be taken up by landscape design materials like displays, blossoms, and decorations, all of those that are significant for enhancing surroundings and setting the mood for the occasion. In order to guarantee that the entire event site can contain every needed components and equipment while also giving the right amount of room for the event, the amount of space needed to fit these items must be taken into consideration and how they are reasonably arranged.

Leisure areas, food areas, etc. can also be set up outside the tent to provide participants with more communication and interaction opportunities. By choosing the right tent, businesses can create a unique setting for their celebrations, showcase their company's personality and style, and create a memorable experience for employees and customers.

The adventure of choosing a tent is infinite. In arranging an orchestra performance for more than 100 guests, many factors come together. It's an infusion of pragmatics, lasting moments, and aesthetic appeal. Every evening party becomes an era that is engraved in the recollections of its participants thanks to the unique event tent building materials.


The size of the tent depends on the layout and the type of event. For a seated dinner with round tables, you might need about 1,000 to 1,500 square feet. For a cocktail-style event, 750 to 1,000 square feet might suffice. Always consider extra space for aisles, dance floors, and stages.

Frame tents and pole tents are popular choices for 100-guest events. Frame tents offer versatility for different terrains and layouts without center poles, while pole tents typically provide a more traditional look with peaks created by central poles.

Most tents can be set up on various surfaces, including grass, asphalt, and concrete. However, the installation method may differ (stakes vs. weights), and some locations may require special considerations. Always check with your rental company and venue.

Besides the tent itself, consider renting lighting, climate control (heaters or fans), flooring, tables, chairs, and decor. For outdoor events, portable restrooms and a generator for power might also be necessary.

 Consider renting sidewalls to protect against wind and rain, and opt for climate control options like heaters for cold weather or fans and air conditioners for warm weather. Flooring can also help keep guests comfortable on uneven or wet ground.

Absolutely. Many rental companies offer various options for customization, including different flooring, lighting designs, and layout configurations to match your event theme and requirements.
