If you’re hosting an outdoor event with a grassy venue, then pole tents may be the ideal choice for your soiree. Pole tents are secured by driving stakes into the ground, which makes them more difficult to erect on concrete or asphalt surfaces. Depending on the size of the space, pole tents have at least one center pole that provides support and also creates an aesthetically pleasing peak at the top of the tent. This silhouette can add flair to your venue space, and make for some great photographs.
Some customers are concerned that the center poles will obstruct event activities, or become an eyesore in the middle of the created event space. That said, the support poles are minimal and still allow for virtually unobstructed viewing within the tent space. Moreover, the poles also serve as an added opportunity for decor. Add floral arrangements, twinkle lights, and other decorations to the support poles to enhance the ambiance of your event space.
