This is about the type of space needed. Temporary structures can help manipulate space, creating new areas for your customers or guests to feel special, engaged, entranced; creating a stage, setting the launch of a product or service, or the platform for the exchange of ideas. Temporary structures can extend seating or carve out meeting areas. Once you’ve identified the type of space you require, then you can start choosing which temporary structure best suits your event.
2. Season or Climate
It should always be a consideration when choosing temporary structures, and shading. Thermal comfort must also be considered as needed, as well as the wind direction and speed. In general, Dubai and the whole UAE can be too hot to have open temporary structures during daylight hours but closed temporary structures with A/C solutions are alternative solutions to expand an existing venue or to cover a terrace during the hottest months of the year expanding available seating and hosting facilities in an efficient and cost-effective way. Wind has also to be considered as it might impact structure stability
3. Installation or De-installation
This includes time frames for setting up of the structure and decoration. Dome tents for instance can be assembled in 24 to 48 hours depending on their size, making them one of the most efficient solutions for events that have to be organised in very short time frames.
4. Safety & Access
Entrances and exits need to be positioned considering foot traffic flow in the area. As always, the renter or temporary structure supplier must be fully aware and compliant with all safety regulations for public structures, putting in place contingency measures in case of the need for emergency evacuation. Also, access for the disabled, including wheelchair ramps, wide doorways, walkways should be integrated into the design.
5. Aesthetic Design options
Top quality materials taking into consideration highest standards of quality and safety, including flame retardant materials. A temporary structure begins as a skeleton that is transformed into a space for work or entertainment. It is a framework to be transformed into a stage so it needs high quality lighting design, upholstery, draping, furniture and accessories.
6. Amenities, Lighting and connectivity
Different types of facilities and amenities such as restrooms, catering facilities, internet connectivity, business services etc. have to be factored into both design and budget. Event agencies should have the knowledge and experience to advise clients about what will be required and the ability to avail the necessary. The highly experienced event contractor can provide the event management agencies with ideal solutions for integrating function rooms and spaces to different events.
Reputable event contractors will be able to provide detailed transparent breakdowns for each element as well as different options to suit different client requests and desires.
