3 Tips For Quickly Sizing Your Tent

Accurately calculating the size of an event tent has always been a hassle. Different types of large-scale event tents have different calculation methods. In fact, most people only need to consider the following 3 tips to accurately calculate the size of an activity tent.

Tent types and the size calculation

Event tents are generally rectangular and dome in shape. Rectangular tents are modular constructions that can be quickly assembled and disassembled, tent length can be extended with no limits, even 1000 people party tent is available also. The dome tent is an Audio-Technica frame that is supported and made of high-strength aluminum alloy. Generally, the size is calculated according to the diameter of the land, and the diameter of the tent can be made from 3 meters to 60 meters.

What are the factors that determine the size of a tent?

1、Number of people present

When you do event planning, you must anticipate the number of attendees. The comfortable social distance between people is between 120 cm and 360 cm. For example, if the number of attendees for a small wedding is 100, a simple calculation shows that 360 square meters of tent space are more comfortable. Guests on site will not feel too stuffy or crowded. We’d better confirm the footprint of the tent before choosing the tent shape.

2、Seating arrangement

Seating arrangements for 100 people in a tent is really a technical task, it not only needs to allow the back row to see the front row without obstruction but to make the seats on both sides not too constricted. Considering that guests need a larger aisle to move around, perhaps you need a larger tent. A large exhibition requires more space than a wedding party.

3、Extra equipment

Tent equipment tools also need to take up some space. In addition to the seating, there is a podium for wedding parties, the main stage for party events, areas for basic items, waiting areas for staff, and so on. If you do not want to overcrowd the tent, you can set up several function tents. Setting up a small tent by purpose is the best solution.

In fact, it is difficult to work out the exact tent size for your event. You’d better grasp two details: the number of attendees and the area occupied by equipment. Leave it to the tent supplier to work out the exact size of the tent, the space planning, and the design of the exterior. They usually offer a complete tent solution for the tent design, site planning, erection, use, and recovery, etc., there will be a relatively perfect solution for your choice.
