Finding the right marquee for your corporate event

Trade hero

A flawless corporate event can look straightforward and simple to many of the guests, but backstage there’s an events manager who has organised everything, from the location to the room, stage, catering, decoration and seating plan. It can be months worth of planning because a large event requires excellent time management, research and marketing. If you’re looking for the perfect venue – why not cut out half of the work?  Design the event of your dreams with the use of your very own marquee venue, created by dedicated professionals who erect marquees at your preferred location and decorate it to your exact requirements.

What type of marquees are there?

  • Clear span frame marquees
  • Traditional marquees
  • Chinese hat marquees
  • Stretch tents
  • Bell tents

The right marquee

Consider the points below to help you decide which type of marquee best suits your corporate event.

  • The size of marquee: Devon and Somerset Marquees have a whole range of marquees to choose from, so however many  guests you are expecting, we can provide a big enough venue that will suit up your number perfectly; even if it’s over 400 guests.
  • The location: wherever you decide to host your event, our friendly team can build your dream marquee amongst any lush green area. We operate our first-rate services throughout Barnstaple, Exeter, Ilfracombe, Minehead, Taunton and Tiverton. If your location is particularly beautiful, it’s worth hiring a clear span marquee that will offer you a fantastic view!
  • Facilities and equipment: why go elsewhere for the essentials? Don’t sweat over the basics, we have them covered. We understand how important it is to provide the whole package, so that your job is made just that bit easier. No marquee is complete without full furniture and equipment, which is why we offer a service that includes:

    Chairs and tables
    Colour themes
    Generator hire
    Table linens


Whatever we haven’t listed but you require, ask away – we’re happy to tailor each and every event to the customer at hand. We’re ready to cater  to your needs so that your corporate event goes off without a hitch!

Why choose a marquee for a corporate event?

A marquee is ideal because it can provide a stunning venue for a variety of events. They’re great for internal communications, promotion parties, retirements and recruitment fairs. We have known many returning customers to use them for their annual conferences, strategic training and management courses, as well as service and new product launches. However, you may wish to enjoy a festive work party – whether that’s for Christmas or the summer season – get everyone together as a thank you for their hard work.

What sectors are corporate marquees used for?

They’re used for retail, hospitality, education, sport & leisure, public sectors and charities – the list goes on!

Once you know the number  of people who will be attending your event, a professional will be able to show you your available options. Call our friendly, dedicated team today and let’s see what we can do for you to make your event one to remember!
