When planning for an outdoor event, it is important not to leave anything to chance. It is difficult to control the weather and many months of event’s planning could easily go to waste if it suddenly rains while the event is in progress. Your best option to ensure that the event will proceed in spite of the bad weather is to hire a marquee to accommodate the guests.
When thousands of people are expected to attend an event, it is best held outdoors. Thousands of fans were expected to fill the outdoor Grand Strand venue to enjoy four days of music from the stars of the country’s music scene. The line-up is impressive with big names like Darius Rucker, Kenny Chesney, Lee Brice, Billy Currington, LANco and Jason Aldean.
The music festival in Myrtle Beach can be considered as the biggest event in South Carolina and expected to attract tens of thousands of people to the 14-acre beachfront property. The 58-year old amusement park closed in 2006 when the Great Recession affected the tourism industry. The long running Sun Fun Festival in Myrtle Beach stopped in 2012 after more than 6 decades of holding activities that helped kicked off summer.
The Sun Festival was organized when Myrtle Beach was not yet a popular destination. Many of the locals have happy memories of the festivals but the challenge was the limited economic impact because publicity did not go beyond the region.
When Full House Productions realized that they have access to 15 acres of prime property near the beach, gears started to run fast for the music festival. The festival will have an immediate economic impact of $20 million to represent spending at hotels, restaurants, stores and the festival itself. Aside from the economic benefits, Myrtle Beach will gain the publicity it needs as a regional and national destination.
If you are planning to hold a big event, your best option is marquee hire in Sydney. Different sizes of marquees are offered according to the number of guests expected for the event. Aside from the marquee, chairs, bar stools, tables, glassware, crockery, catering equipment, linen, lighting and flooring are also available.
