After dining, guests were welcomed
back to the cocktail space, which had
been transformed for the after-party with
dozens of mini-mirrored disco balls and a
mirrored dance floor.
According to Knight, this memorable
wedding featured a main 40-by-45-meter
tent, yielding 19,536 square feet with 8,682
square feet allocated for cocktails/afterparty
festivities and 10,853 square feet
allocated for seated dining and dancing.
Other tents that the EventQuip team
installed included two 12-by-15-meter
tents for green room and storage; a
15-by-10.5-meter tent for catering/
service; a 6-by-19.5-meter restroom tent,
which comprised an additional total of

a Losberger P1 40-by-45-meter clear-top
European style structure on 4-meter legs.
It was installed with 14 bays of glass wall,
four sets of glass structure doors with
glass surrounds, and 18 bays of insulated
hard wall. The space was fully floored
using Dura-Tracâ„¢ 4-by-4-foot panels
with custom plywood cuts to circle the
center fountain and covered with cut-pile
champagne carpet. And it was cooled with
400 tons of air-conditioning. The cocktail/
dinner tent also included a 16-by-64-foot
platform installed inside the fountain, with
champagne carpet and two sets of 16-footwide
steps; a 21-by-48-foot dance floor;
and a 28-by-16-foot multilevel stage.
The catering tent featured a Losberger
P7 15-by-10.5-meter white-top structure
on 10-foot-high legs and was fully
floored with Dura-Trac; the storage and
green room tents included Losberger
P7 12-by-15-meter white-top structure
tents on 10-foot-high legs and was fully

The tents were secured with 315,000
pounds of concrete weights. Eleven
tractor trailer loads were needed to
deliver the concrete weights, structure
frames, tent equipment and vinyl, walls
and glass doors.
" The venue allotted eight days for the
overall installation of tenting, flooring,
carpet, lighting, A/V, sound, furnishings,
decor, floral, climate control, restrooms
and table settings-including the event
day-and four days for removal, " Knight
says. " The EventQuip tent team consisted
of 45 crew members in total-led by four
project managers and crew leaders. "
EventQuip was challenged to install
the main tent, a fully weighted 40-by-45meter
with tops, glass and hard sidewalls,
doors and flooring, all to be weather-tight,
in less than 48 hours. This would allow
lighting, sound, design, draping, decor
and furnishings enough time to execute
their elements for the event. The team
positioned nine crews of five people each
to simultaneously work on different
aspects of the installation to accomplish
this goal. EventQuip also secured the
appropriate tent permits, which were
issued by the city of Philadelphia's
Department of Licenses and Inspections.
" With advance planning and
scheduling, we were able to deliver the
main tent and floor within 30 hours (18
hours ahead of schedule), giving the
lighting and sound team additional time
for their installations, " Knight says.
