When hosting a function, event, or celebration, the presentation is everything. The decorations need to be elegant, the tables need to be set up correctly, and even the flooring and lighting need to be of the best quality. Serving up a delicious 3-course meal on chipped plates with damaged/bent cutlery is not going to earn you the “wow” reaction that you will be hoping for from your guests. If you are opting to hire banqueting equipment, make sure that the supplier takes your event as seriously as you do. Ensure that their function items are of a good quality, or you could find your reputation taking a knock.

Let’s face it, planning a function can be riddled with frustrations and stress. While your mind is on all things function related, there will be much to do, so there are things that could be overlooked. Especially when it comes to hiring banqueting equipment. At TentWorx, we don’t just hire out tents. We offer full-function hire and catering services too.

Before you place your order for hiring banqueting equipment, here are a few tips to help:

  • Hire enough items to cater for your number of guests, and a bit more. Sometimes, things get broken or misplaced, and the last thing you want is a few guests going without plates, glasses, cutlery, or a chair.
  • Hire extra chairs for additional social zones. While each guest might have a chair at their table, they aren’t going to carry it outside or to another area where they wish to talk, wait, or smoke. Adding a few extra chairs can provide comfort and convenience.
  • Don’t try to squeeze people in. It might seem like a good idea to cut back on costs by hiring a smaller tent or trying to fit an extra chair at each table, but you will certainly regret it on the day of your function. If guests are uncomfortable, they will remember it and it might even be the reason why some of them leave your celebration early. Chat to the professionals about suitable spacing options, so that you don’t get stuck with a cramped event.
  • Don’t skimp on flooring. When considering your options for hiring banqueting equipment, consider flooring options too. If you are setting up your event on grass or sand, it’s going to be very uncomfortable for ladies in heels to walk around. Dance flooring is also quite important. Flooring doesn’t have to be expensive, as there are various options, ranging from carpet to vinyl.
  • Consult with a function planner about which items will be required. You might think that you have thought of it all, but why take the risk? When hiring banqueting equipment, chat to the supplier’s function coordinator about the general items required. If possible, ask for a checklist, so that you can go through each item to see if you need it or not. This will save you time and stress in the long run.
