Starting An Event Hire Company...

Gala Tent understands that many of our clients will only require a tent for an event or two, and then may not need to use it again for some time. These clients invariably come to Gala Tent initially looking to hire a tent, but this is sadly not a service we offer.

However, we have helped to set up dozens of event hire companies over the years, many of which have developed their businesses into extremely successful and reputable operations, and our Managing Director Jason Mace has recently launched his first entrepreneurial book Event Industry Boss: The Secret to Becoming Successful in the Event Industry.

The book draws on Jason’s twenty-plus years of experience within the event industry, including access to the methods that helped to grow Gala Tent from a £2000 credit investment, into a multi-million pounds international operation. If you are interested in putting your time, effort and money, into a tried and tested business model, Gala Tent will help you at every step of your journey.

There are many uses for Gala Tent Marquees and Gazebos for you to hire to your local community, from garden parties and fetes, through food and drinks festivals, and up to large scale events such as agricultural and country shows and corporate hospitality. Gala Tent can impart our twenty years of knowledge onto you, to give you the best chance of success.
