Better Options for Concert Venue Tents: Commercial-Grade Cabanas

Commercial-Grade Cabanas - Better Options for Concert Venue Tents

Outdoor event venues are celebrated for addressing music lovers’ passion for open-air entertainment, but every property manager knows the never-ending challenges these venues can pose.  We continually hear complaints about four of the most energy consuming aspects: vendor relations, artist comfort, VIP guest satisfaction, and facility maintenance.  One way to simplify all of these challenges is to upgrade your aging concert venue tents to durable, commercial-grade cabanas.

Commercial cabanas are built using top-quality materials, so they don’t rattle in the breeze, rust in the elements, or deteriorate as the seasons pass. They are tailored to address your specific needs, so you’re sure you’re getting a sturdy, reliable product that will stay pristine year after year.

Vendor Relations

Concert venue tents (aka event tents) are infamously low quality, leaving vendors battling against flapping sidewalls, leaky roofs, and security concerns.  Commercial-grade cabanas are designed for durability – so they can withstand nightly use and year-round exposure to the elements.  Whether you choose to upgrade the concert tents for your entire facility or simply those that host your biggest sponsors, vendors are sure to appreciate the top-quality, stress-free space you’re providing.  As vendors increasingly have better experiences at your venue, you’ll find it easier to renew contracts and attract higher-value sponsors in the future.

Artist Satisfaction

If your outdoor venue has a luxurious green room, then artist satisfaction may not be a primary challenge.  However, if you’re dealing with a less-than-ideal backstage situation, commercial cabanas offer the solution you’ve been searching for.  Designed with elegance and comfort in mind, cabanas can be just as comfortable as an actual indoor space.  Incorporate high-end furniture, fans, infrared heaters, and high-definition TVs or sound systems to optimize the space.

Additionally, cabanas can offer the privacy many entertainers desire – with stationary or traversing side curtain options and rust-proof vertical zipper closures for effortless operation.

VIP Guest Experience

Whether you currently sell VIP tickets or are simply tempted by the substantial profits you could generate, creating a “VIP Experience” differentiates your venue from all others in the area – if you do it right.  It’s true that traditional concert venue tents can provide shade and basic functionality, but cabanas add the top-quality style and comfort your most discerning guests expect.

As you design or re-design your VIP area, cabanas can be a shady oasis where all VIP ticket holders can take a break, or you can use them to generate substantial profits as private rentals.  If you’ve ever been to a club or lounge, you know that guests pay a great deal for table service.  Imagine the potential of offering private cabana rentals as an option with your VIP Experience.

Facility Maintenance

While it may be less interesting than the previous topics, facility maintenance is a major concern for property managers.  Many of our clients complain that concert venue tents are continually needing repairs and aren’t able to withstand major weather events – causing serious headaches when storms approach.  Commercial cabanas can be engineered to withstand high winds and significant rains, so your maintenance crews don’t have to scramble when the weather report predicts the worst.

Similarly, top-quality cabanas require minimal maintenance to keep them looking flawless as each event passes.
