A BRIEF HISTORY OF INSTANT MARQUEES LTD
Instant Marquees Ltd was founded back in 2002 to sell and rent out pop-up gazebos. Our very first rental job was the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002, which we got because the event organiser had been let down by another supplier. We learnt an important lesson from this – and that referrals and word of mouth are the best form of advertising – so we have done our best to do what we say we are going to do for our customers over the years.
We were already producing print for the surf industry, so it was not a great leap to start printing tents. In 2002, we were amongst the very first companies to print in-house using the dye-sublimation technique – it means that we are responsible for the whole process of producing branded marquees, so we cannot blame any-one else if anything goes wrong. Over the years we have produced literally thousands of printed tents for some of the world’s biggest brands, and some of the smallest too. Your brand is in good hands.
In 2008 we brought production of the frames as well as the canopies & walls in-house in order to guarantee quality, innovation and deliveries. UK production not only guarantees quality, it also means that you do not have to buy anything in sets – you can just order what you need. And spare parts and service are available for our all products too.
Over the years the business in to produce many different event and experiential marketing products. We hope you can find some-thing here for your business or event. Do call us to discuss your needs.

BRANDED RENTALS - HOW DOES THAT WORK?
The concept is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s only avail-able from Instant Marquees. If your activation is relatively short, why buy the hardware when you can rent it? This means large cost savings, no storage, transport or logistical problems and yet you still get exactly what you need – and if required, we can deliver & erect it all too.
The branded elements that you own can be anything from a simple temporary printed pelmet right up a fully branded tent like the Thunderbirds tent on the left; in this case we supplied 20 fully branded tents annually, rigged and transported them, and cleaned & stored the printwork ready for the following year – all for Hamley’s Toy Parade on Regents Street, London.
Or you might choose a Festival Banner or maybe our stunning new Festival Facade to go with your rental tents. Get in contact to see if this will work for you.
MANAGED RENTAL TENTS FOR PEACE OF MIND
We have over 200 rental pop-up tents, nationwide delivery for large events, nearly 20 years of event experience – and, at some events, we can supply crews to remain on-site for the duration of the event to maintain/move/check the installation as required.
