Tent Hire Guide

When hiring a tent for your event there are a few important areas of consideration:


  • Where will your tent be situated?
  • Are there any obstructions or areas that may need specialist attachments?

Should your location be unusual in any way, we’ll need to know to ensure we provide you with the perfect Event Tent.


The installation time varies according to the situation & location. Every installation is unique so we discuss the specifics in detail prior to erecting the Tent. On average a 200m2 tent takes approximately 6hrs to install including a lighting package. Other extras will increase the time required.

Tent Size Requirements:

We’ll need to know the size of the Tent you wish to hire. Check the Tent Hire Guide below for estimates on size of tents required according to the usage, number of guests, seating etc. Don’t stress, if you’re unsure, contact your local Nomadic Tents agent on 1300 554835 for assistance.

A simple way of working out your tent rental requirements, is to use the following guide…
1. A formal event where people are seated at tables usually requires around 2 sqm/person, so a wedding for 100 people will need a marquee of around 200 sqm.
2. A cocktail event where people are mostly standing usually requires around 1,5 sqm/person, so a wedding for 100 people will need a marquee of around 150 sqm.
“However”, it does also depend on the following, the style of event you want, the type of furniture you choose (table sizes), if there is entertainment (staging, dance floor, DJ), and your catering requirement (space for a bar, food area etc..)
