Event furniture hire is the process of renting furniture for – typically – short periods of time, generally for temporary events. Examples of this would be hiring furniture to furnish the hospitality suites at the Epsom Derby, or furnishing the backstage areas at Glastonbury Festival. And whilst furniture hire might not be at the top of many event professionals’ priority lists when it comes to their event planning, it’s important to get it right, nonetheless.
What is event furniture hire?
Of course, event furniture hire means different things to different people. To an industry professional looking to furnish hospitality suites, it is mainly going to involve tables and chairs. For conference organisers, the focus will very much be on chair hire. And for outdoor event organisers such as air shows and other similar events that take place in the UK live events calendar, outdoor furniture may well be the order of the day.
What should I look for when it comes to event furniture rental?
Quality is, of course, important, as is price, though we would suggest that price should not be the most important factor when you are deciding where to hire event furniture from. Yes, everyone wants to get value for money, though other elements such as the level of customer you are likely to receive from your furniture hire company, along with their expertise in the field, must go a long way in helping you reach a decision.
You also want to ensure that your event furniture is matching. For instance, when it comes to event chairs, large sports hospitality occasions often call for 500+ chairs at a time, and it is important that your chairs are matching to create that all-important first impression. When you are furnishing hospitality areas at high profile events, you do not get a second chance to make the impression you need to do with your clients, sponsors and VIPs, so you need to get it right first time.
Service goes a long way
In the lead up to a busy event, you need to be confident that your furniture is going to arrive on time, in the right condition, at the right place and in the right quantities.
