We have the answer to all your questions about event tents for hire and everything else you need for a memorable event.

What is a marquee tent?

A marquee is a smaller version of a larger tent structure. Our event tents for hire include marquee tents frequently used as entranceways or small sectioned-off areas within a larger tent structure system.

What are the types of marquee tents?

MPR Hiring offers two types of marquee event tents for hire.

Peg and pole marquees

Tension structures, also known as peg and pole marquee tents, are used on soft surfaces like grass or soil. These marquee event tents for hire come in various widths, including six metres, nine metres, 12 metres, 15 metres, and 21 metres. Peg and pole marquee event tents for hire can be built to any length after you’ve chosen the appropriate width. You may also choose to install an interlocking hardwood floor to ensure adequate water drainage and to give the impression of a more permanent structure. This also keeps delicate table, chair legs, and ladies’ stiletto heels from sinking into the ground.

Aluminium frame marquees

We provide clearspan marquees with aluminium frames in widths of three metres, six metres, nine metres, 10 metres, 12 metres, 15 metres, 20 metres, and 25 metres. This type of tent can be lengthened, like peg and pole marquee event tents for hire. Once you’ve decided on the width, we can adjust the length to meet your on-site needs. Because of the design’s flexibility, different shapes of tents can be erected. As a result, these aluminium event tents for hire can be adapted and supplemented with high-quality tenting to cover awkward spaces. Furthermore, these tents can be erected on surfaces that are too hard for pegs and are weight-anchored, leaving the ground undamaged.

What are the types of glassware I can hire for an event?

For all your events, conferences, functions, weddings, or private parties, MPR Hiring provides various event glassware for hire in different shapes and sizes. We have everything from traditional, plain to banquet glassware. Our crystal and glass dishes, serving plates, dessert bowls, and other glassware are available for hire in Johannesburg.
