Which size Marquee Tent should I hire?

To calculate the tent size required to hire for the event you must take the amount of guest attending the venue and multiply by the square meter for each activity. Most often it will involve people seated at tables or seated in cinema style configuration. Banquet style Configuration, an event where people are seated at tables normally requires 1 square meters of space per person. For example: A wedding of 100 quests will need a marquee tent of about 100 square meters. Cocktail Party style Configuration where people are standing such as a cocktail party you will typically require 0.7 square meters per guest.

* This is only a guide line for tent hire sizes and is calculated without dance floor, buffet tables entrances enc. larger functions can be calculated up to 2 square meters per guest.A good general guideline when it comes to choosing the right size dance floor for your tent is approximately 1 to 1.5 square meters per guest. Keep in mind that not all guests will be dancing at one time. A good rule of thumb is to make provision for about 50% off the amount of people attending.
