But Smith notes, overall, the more
multistory tents Shaffer erects, the easier it
gets. " I like those challenges, " he adds. " I'm
way past putting up tents in a parking lot. "
Losberger De Boer has installed
multilevel tents at many events,
including the Breeders Cup World
Championship horse races, and says it
could go as high as four stories-which
will probably seem routine someday.

FINDING CREATIVE USES
Joe Eimer is the northeast region sales
representative for Losberger De Boer, one
of the world's largest clearspan manufacturers,
based in Germany. Multistory tents
are nothing new for the company-it has
been offering these tents for about two
decades under the product name Emporium-but
Eimer agrees that they are
growing in popularity as event organizers
are finding more creative uses for them.
" They're ideal for large sporting
events, festivals and corporate functions, "
he says. " For example, we installed
one last summer at a concert venue in
upstate New York, as a VIP facility at the
side of the stage. "
That was the Keybank Headliner
Lounge, constructed for the
Constellation Brands Marvin Sands
Performing Arts Center (CMAC),
a 15,000-person amphitheater in
Canandaigua, N.Y.
" CMAC wanted to create a private
VIP area with great views of the stage, "
says Eimer. " With this purpose in mind,
Losberger, along with our local vendor
McCarthy Tents & Events/Nolan's Tent
& Party Rental, delivered the two-story
maxiflex Emporium. "
The location was set up to allow
RACE SPACE
ventstar Structures, based in Medley, Fla., was responsible
for the incredible multistory tent project at the Formula
One Miami Grand Prix Paddock in Miami, Fla., seen on page 24.
The project featured a group of permanent and semi-permanent
multilevel structures that made up the events Paddock and F1's
patented Paddock Club high-end hospitality space.
The first level served as the pit garages and provided the
foundation for the upper hospitality levels. The main paddock was
a mix of enclosed climate-controlled spaces and open-air terraces
that provided expansive views for lucky patrons. The enclosed
portions were clad with custom stacked panoramic glass and
insulated hard walls. The valance was treated with a custom fabric
parapet printed with multiple intermediate interruptions on the run
fabric panels to house LED screens that broadcast events live to
guests seated in the opposing grandstand.

After years of planning and almost half a year of installation, the
inaugural race in Miami was ultimately a success and the project
received an IAA Outstanding Achievement Award from Advanced
Textiles Association in 2022.
VIP ticket holders to experience
desired amenities under a private tent,
including access to private restrooms
and private bars. " In addition, " says
Eimer, " CMAC had the opportunity
to further strengthen its ties with its
sponsors to host brand events and
activities, by offering a large amount of
space, both inside and on the outside
balcony area. "
To achieve what Eimer calls " a
one-of-a-kind hospitality building
for their world-class venue, " the
company fitted out its 10-meter
Emporium with a 2.5-meter eave
balcony, glass and PVC cassette walls
and double glass doors that are suitable
for high-end applications. " We ended
up with a modular two-story structure
that can be combined with a full
mezzanine to create an impressive
viewing platform. "
VARYING FLOOR PLANS
One obvious benefit of having
multiple levels is the number of
floor plan possibilities it offers.
Manufacturers design these products
with a foundational core that can
support a variety of sizes on its upper
levels. According to Losberger, the
