Tent Expo 2021
postponed to 2022
ent Expo 2021 has been postponed
to January 2022. Tent Rental
Division (TRD) chairman Michael Tharpe
released the following statement:
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit
our members hard and changed the
way in which we do business in today's
environment. As your association, TRD
has felt your pain and has listened to your
issues and concerns in supporting the
tenting industry.
At this time we feel that it is in the best
interest of both our rental and vendor
members to postpone Tent Expo 2021 to
2022. This will give us all time to reϔlect
and move toward the future with the
way we do business. We look forward to
January 2022, when we can toast to a new
beginning in the industry we are all so
passionate about.
To be proactive, we continue to create
programming to keep the association
strong and provide you the latest tools for
navigating this evolving pandemic. This
includes the new world of PPE, proper
cleaning techniques and other business
recommendations.
Our goal is to remain a positive inϔluence
on our members and the tent industry
as we all move to open the economy and
get people back to planning outdoor
events. To do so we must work together
and remain strong for it to be successful.
We look forward to promoting new ideas
and hearing from you. Please forward
suggestions to Jill Newman (IFAI education
and events manager, jmnewman@ifai.

efforts in moving forward.
