It is no surprise that the event industry is shifting further to sustainable practices during all phases of the event planning process. We could and should be doing more to improve the sustainability of our events and do our part in tackling the climate crisis, but it can be hard to know where to start.

As event organizers strive to lessen their carbon footprint, they’re also ramping up their creativity to provide more profound and memorable experiences for their guests. An exciting avenue for achieving this lies in reimagining conventional indoor venues and embracing the sustainable potential presented by the use of large event tents.

By exploring the vast benefits such as natural surroundings, lighting, and air control in the event planning process, event producers are opening up opportunities far past the constraints of an indoor venue.

Let’s break it down.

Embracing the Great Outdoors:

Large event tents provide a unique opportunity to connect with nature while hosting gatherings of all sizes. By opting for an outdoor venue, event producers can capitalize on natural light, fresh air, and breathtaking surroundings. This not only enhances the overall ambiance but also reduces the reliance on artificial lighting and climate control systems, thus lowering energy consumption.

Flexibility and Versatility:

Unlike fixed indoor venues, event tents offer unparalleled flexibility and adaptability. Whether it’s a corporate conference, a community event, or a music festival, these versatile temporary structures can be customized to suit any occasion. Furthermore, their modular design allows for easy expansion or contraction based on attendance, minimizing wasted space and resources.

By choosing a large event tent over an indoor venue, your sustainability practices align in several ways.

Event tents typically have a smaller environmental footprint compared to permanent indoor facilities. They require fewer construction materials, consume less energy for maintenance, and produce minimal construction waste.

By opting for outdoor venues, event producers are consciously deciding to preserve precious green spaces and promote biodiversity. Instead of erecting permanent structures on undeveloped land or clearing forests for construction, event producers can utilize existing open areas without causing ecological disruption. This not only conserves natural habitats but also fosters a deeper appreciation for the environment among attendees.

Waste reduction is a large part of event planning now, with tighter restrictions on waste products and removal from cities across the province. With proper planning, large event tents facilitate waste reduction and recycling efforts. Event producers can implement composting stations, reusable tableware, and recycling bins to minimize landfill waste. Furthermore, choosing vendors who prioritize sustainable practices ensures that event-related materials are sourced responsibly and disposed of ethically.

We all know that hosting events in large tents fosters further community engagement and interaction. By bringing people together in outdoor settings, attendees are encouraged to explore their surroundings, connect with fellow participants, and appreciate the beauty of nature. This sense of community not only enhances the event experience but also fosters a collective commitment to sustainability beyond the venue gates.

At Elevation Tent Rentals sustainability is at the core of our values. Here’s how we contribute to a greener future:

Quality over Quantity

We only use the highest quality materials for our tents, ensuring durability and longevity. By prioritizing quality over quantity, we reduce the need for frequent replacements, ultimately minimizing waste and environmental impact.

Small Footprint Geographics

We keep our event geographics smaller to maintain a smaller environmental footprint. By focusing on localized large events, we minimize resource consumption and ecological disturbance.

Dance Floor Sustainability

Did you know that most dance floors end up dismantled and thrown into landfills, wrapped in plastics? At Elevation Tent Rentals, we refuse to contribute to this waste. Our dance floors are designed with sustainability in mind, eliminating the need for plastic wrapping and promoting responsible disposal methods.

As the old saying goes, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. We can make a bigger impact when we work together as partners to tackle the sustainability of our events. Choosing between indoor venues and large event tents can have a significant impact. By embracing the sustainable possibilities offered by outdoor tents, event producers can create unforgettable experiences while minimizing environmental harm. From reducing energy consumption to fostering community engagement and partnering with eco-conscious vendors like Elevation Tent Rentals, these versatile structures pave the way for a greener, more responsible approach to event production.

Step outside the confines of traditional venues and embrace the boundless potential of large event tents in shaping a more sustainable future for large events.
