Frame tents are “free standing” tents with no poles inside for roof support. They can be anchored using stakes or water barrels. We have several styles of frame tents in our inventory. Price includes installation!
Pole tents are just what they are called.... they have poles in the center. The Pole tent requires anchoring into the surface 10’ beyond the exterior with ropes and stakes. Pole tents use tension straps to create a smooth appearance. Pole tents can have beautiful high peaks and present a lot of curves. Price includes installation!

The most common error made in calculating event seating capacity is not allowing for “move room” around the tables effectively. Aside from main traffic aisles (local Fire Marshall regulations vary from city to city), you also need to allow 4.5' between round tables for chair and service space and 5’ between rectangular tables where seating is back to back. Don’t forget to add the additional space needed for bars, buffets, dance floors, staging, props, special room shapes, etc. to your overall event seating calculation.
Here are some good calculations when considering your event capacity requirements:
Cocktail parties (standing) 5-6 sq ft/person.
Dinner (sitting 8 per table), using 8’ rectangular table8 sq ft/person.
Dinner (sitting 6-8 per table), using round table 10 sq ft/person.
Dinner (sitting 8-12 per table) using round table 12 sq ft/person.
Auditorium seating 6 sq ft/person.
Buffet arrangement (75 guests/table) 100 sq ft/table.
Bar arrangement 100 sq ft/table.
Dance Floor Area 4 sq ft/person.
Here are some guidelines for making sure you have enough “move room” around your tables and chairs. This allows for a 24” service space behind 18” chair depth:
