Are there traditional

marquees in australia?

Hi!

 

My company Fandangos (click here to see our website in a new window) is an event and entertainment business based in the south-west of England. I’ve recently been working out in Australia again and have had a great time working in the event industry out here.

 

Back home, a big part of our business is marquee hires for events, festivals, fetes, weddings etc. The type of marquee I use at home are classed as “Traditional Marquees”, they’re a lot less common than the metal framed type which are so popular, in Australia and in England. The traditional marquees give a different look and feel which I really prefer, so that’s the direction the business went in. To see the types  I mean see our marquees here.

 

While I’ve been working here in Australia (Sydney based) I noticed that I never saw any traditional marquees at any of the events I was working. I did some research, asked people I worked with and googling but I was unable to find any companies that offered traditional style marquees like I work with at home. (I note that there are the big-top style tents which do the large city events which hold 1000’s…I’m looking slightly smaller scale)

 

I’m trying to find out:

  • Do you know any companies in Australia who provide these type of traditional marquees? (PVC or Canvas Types)

  • Do you think traditional marquees would be popular?

  • Do you know any reason why these tents aren’t popular  here? (Wind? Regulations?)

  • Do you want one?!

If anyone has any insights, recommendations of people to speak to or if you’re interested in these tents then please drop me a line. I’m trying to gauge if it’s worth potentially importing some traditional marquees to Australia.

 

Any feedback is welcomed and encouraged as are any questions.
