Personalised Tents: The Perfect Venue to Showcase Your Brand

Whether you’re hosting a trade show, festival or corporate event, one thing is certain: you want your brand to stand out. Creating a unique and memorable event is a powerful marketing tool that can help you reach new customers, build your brand’s reputation and drive sales.

One of the proven ways to achieve this is through event tents, personalised with your brand identity. Such a setup envelops your visitors within a branded experience, allowing them to physically interact with your brand. Within this article, we will explore how personalised tents can effectively showcase and market your brand.

Choosing the Right Tents for Your Event

The first step in personalising your tent is selecting the right design and materials for your event. There are many different types of tents available, each with its own unique look and features. Whether you want unique shapes such as Electra Domes, a spectacular two-storey view, or a standard Pagoda to provide cover; the shape of your tent should be decided on first.

Once you’ve chosen the right type of tent, you can start considering materials. It is important to choose high-quality materials to ensure your tents look professional and last for the duration of your event. This is especially important for outdoor events where your tents may be exposed to different weather conditions.

Once both your tent design and material selection have been completed, branding can begin. Deciding what colours, where to position your logo, what information to display and so on are all important factors in personalising your tent.

Cohesive Branding

Your tent’s design, contents and graphics should all align with your brand image; sending a clear message about who you are and what you do. All elements should be consistent with the overall look and feel of your event, which includes banners, furniture, stands, colours and materials. Consistency is key as it is an overall atmosphere that you want to create – this is what will draw visitors to your personalised tent.

Some key tips to keep in mind when designing your tents include:

  • Use colours and graphics that are consistent with your brand’s visual identity
  • Incorporate your logo and other branding elements prominently
  • Ensure your message is clear and easy to read from a distance

The branding of personalised tents is most effective when parts of your logo or colour scheme are continued through the tent, gently reinforcing the presence of your brand within the minds of visitors. To make sure consistency and continuity are achieved throughout your event, Electra offers bespoke graphics, furnishings and structures to strengthen your brand’s message and truly personalise each event tent.

Production and Distribution: Bringing Your Event to Life

Once you’ve finalised your personalised tent design, it’s time to bring it to life. The production process for custom-branded tents involves printing your design onto high-quality materials before constructing the tents to your specifications.

When it comes to distribution and logistics, there are several options available to you. You can either have the tents shipped to your event location, or you can work with a local partner to handle the logistics for you. At Electra, we have our own fleet of trucks and experienced personnel to assemble and dismantle your tents, ensuring your event remains hassle-free.

Personalised Temporary Structures: Taking Your Event to the Next Level

Personalised tents are a great way to make your event stand out. One such option is personalised temporary structures like The Cube, which offers endless possibilities of materials, cladding, and branding along all external facades, matching the tent to the brand image and theme.

Our recent projects at the Mother of the Nation Festival in 2021 and Downtown Design in 2022 are perfect examples of how personalised tents can create unique and memorable experiences for visitors while reinforcing the brand’s image.

For the Mother of the Nation Festival that attracted close to 150,000 visitors over 10 days, Electra was appointed to deliver innovative and Instagram-worthy temporary structures. The team’s attention to detail was key in creating unique and flashy event setups, while making sure the various areas of the event enjoyed seamless aesthetics. We provided our innovative ‘The Cube’ tent solution for the buildings, with a total of four tents covering 1125 sqm, as well as a custom-made structure of 100 sqm with pink cladding. The Cube is a fully customisable tent solution that resembles a permanent building, is sustainable thanks to an inflatable roof that saves energy, and can use eco-flooring.

Electra’s contribution to the festival’s success was a source of pride for the team, and highlights the effectiveness of personalised temporary structures in creating an immersive and memorable experience for visitors.

Coming to Downtown Design, we have been their official contractor for over 10 years. For the 2022 edition, we built two adjacent tents spanning over 10,000sqm, taking care of the full technical venue coordination and setup. Our solution also included furniture rental and additional orders to decorate the stands and welcome visitors in comfortable and modern settings. We also included solar panels to save on fuel consumption, aligning with our client’s goal of creating a carbon-neutral event by 2023. Once the exhibition was over, we dismantled all the stands and tents with the planet in mind, making sure we reused and recycled materials where possible.

Conclusion: Making Your Event Memorable with Personalised Tents

Personalising your tents is a powerful way to make your event stand out and to leave a lasting positive impression on your guests.
