4 Types of Rentals You Need for Your Next Event

Planning an event, especially an outdoors one, consists of researching venues, planning decorations, sending invitations out, considering catering options, and even weather-proofing the event. It can be exhausting—which is why you should simplify the entire process by knowing your options about event rentals. Event rentals can streamline an event’s planning process and make your life easier, and to top it off many rental companies even set up rentals for you. Event rentals can include a wide variety of things, which is why we’ve created a list of the top 4 types of rentals that you need for your next event.


If you are planning an outdoor event, then the first step you should take is to rent a tent. There are a variety of tents that you could consider renting, including century pole tents, sailcloth tents, clear-top tents, high peak frame tents, and regular frame tents. All of these kinds of tents provide shelter for event attendees in case of bad weather like rain. You can also rent tent sidewalls and doors to further protect guests from potentially bad weather. Guests will feel that they are protected from the elements while also still enjoying your event’s atmosphere underneath a tent. Consider renting tents from Joliet Tent, Chicago’s premier tent rental company. Joliet Tent supplies tents for all types of events to ensure a successful and weather-proof gathering. 

Tables, chairs, and linens

Most events need tables and chairs, especially if there is food being served at the event. Consider how many people are attending your event when renting tables and chairs and whether you would like assigned seating at your event. You may also want to consider what type of table setup you’d like, including whether you want round or square tables. Lastly, you’ll most likely need to rent tablecloths for your tables to create a more elegant and tasteful atmosphere.

Elevated flooring

In addition to renting a tent for your outdoor event, you might want to think about renting elevated floors for it. That way, your guests will have secure flooring to walk on in case the weather turns for the worse. Secure and elevated flooring allows guests to walk on a stable surface in case of rain or flooding, as well as protects them from slipping on the ground. 

Tent heating and cooling

Oftentimes, the weather can cause extreme heat or freezing temperatures. If this happens, your guests will either be freezing or sweating and won’t be able to fully enjoy the event. To protect guests, make sure to provide them with tent heating and cooling systems to keep them from getting too hot or cold. Some tent rental companies provide these rentals, along with generators and power distribution, and even tent fans. You’ll be able to keep your guests and employees warm and comfortable if there is cold and stormy weather in the fall or winter, or keep them cool and refreshed in the heat and humidity of warmer months.

Hosting your event

Whether you are planning an outdoor wedding or hosting a music festival, using these 4 types of rentals will shorten the time you spend planning the event. Hosting your event will be a breeze, and you’ll be able to fully relax during it and enjoy the occasion.
