The world of event planning and execution is ever-evolving, with innovations and advancements taking center stage in the event tent. One such groundbreaking innovation was the introduction of the large-span event tent at the 2019 Taoyuan Agricultural Expo in Taiwan. This article delves into the journey of bringing this colossal event tent to life, the transformative impact it had on the expo, and the broader implications for the future of event hosting in the region.
In 2019, the Taoyuan Agricultural Expo in Taiwan opened its doors for bidding. Our collaborative client was keen on securing this project, aiming to revolutionize Taiwan’s exhibition market with the introduction of a large-span event tent. Taiwan had never witnessed a 40-meter span tent before, and our client envisioned showcasing the awe-inspiring effect of such a structure. After meticulous planning and considering the venue’s specifications and the expo’s scale, we settled on a 40×50 meter event tent, covering an area of 2000 square meters.
The government’s tender was aligned with these specifications. Given that Taiwan had no prior experience with tents of this magnitude, our proactive client had already made the purchase, making their intent to secure the project crystal clear. Their determination paid off as they successfully bagged the project.
Challenge & Solution
Governmental Approval: Securing the government’s nod was paramount. In the preliminary stages, we tailored our approach to local wind loads, opting for a 120×350 enlarged profile for the 40-meter span. Typically, this profile could span 50 meters, but prioritizing safety, our client was willing to invest more. We conducted thorough technical calculations, taking the venue into account, and presented a comprehensive report. This diligence ensured we obtained the necessary construction permits, meeting the government’s stringent criteria.
Delivery Commitments: Our company rallied its resources, promising swift delivery timelines. While competitors were still in the waiting phase, our client had already secured the tender, thanks to our proactive approach.
On-Site Construction Challenges: Given that this was Taiwan’s maiden attempt at erecting a large-span event tent, our company dispatched engineers to guide the construction process. Despite encountering challenges, such as the absence of cross-bracing holes in our 5-meter columns, our seasoned team swiftly resolved the issues on-site. The client further enhanced the tent’s aesthetics with interior and exterior decorations. Preliminary plans ensured seamless integration of the tent with internal electrical systems, ventilation, and drainage channels. Given the expo’s proximity to the sea in Taoyuan Xiwu, periodic reinforcements were made every four days to ensure the tent’s stability.
