Corporate Hospitality Marquees
Exhibitions, Product Launches, Trade Shows, Company Celebrations, Festivals…
We at Florida Marquees know how important your corporate image is so the marquee you hire reflects directly on your company. Our aim, when you hire our services, is to enhance your reputation and image. From the planning stage to the final take down we will assist with and accommodate all your requirements. If you are planning an event that may require corporate hospitality marquees contact us for a quotation.
A 12m x 42m marquee at Ampleforth College used to welcome new pupils and their families. This marquee had a section of clear roof, a catering area and the rest lined with ivory pleated lining. The event was standing but some comfy rattan furniture was on offer. The marquee was heated with ducted warm air heaters.
YAMS Machinery Show
We supply several marquees for the YAMS Agricultural Machinery Show near York.
Clear Roof Marquee
The Driffield Show
On average we supply around 40 marquees, of varying size, at the Driffield Show. The show is the largest one day show in the country.
Beer festivals have become very popular over recent years and we now supply marquees to four local festivals. Each festival grows each year and we are able to extend the length of each marquee to suit the numbers attending.
Christmas is a very busy time for us. Marquees are used for Christmas Fairs, Markets, Festivals as well as additional shop and cafe space for farm shops and stately homes.
Fashion Show Marquees
Our marquees are an ideal back drop for fashion shows with a carpeted catwalk. Wedding marquees are sometimes used the day after for a charity event.
Temporary Building Marquee
Aluminium frame marquees can be used as temporary buildings such as a café overflow in the photo above. This marquee has a wooden floor, carpet, lighting and heating. Temporary storage is another option with our larger marquees.
Special occasions like a new building opening require an elegant but practical marquee. These panoramic windows allow guests to see the new building as they dine.
Marquees for Motoring Events
We have had some interesting vehicles in our marquees as in this photo the Bloodhound land speed car. In the past we have also had a Colin MacRae Suburu WRC car and a Formula 1 racing car. We also supply marquees and equipment to several other motoring events across the region such as The P1 Yorkshire Grand Prix of the Sea (Power Boats) at Scarborough.
Special Company Celebrations
Many companies like to celebrate milestones within their business. Whether it is 10, 20, 50 or 100 years in business Florida can help make your celebration a successful and special occasion. We cover two car parks with marquees and linked the two together for NTS up in thirsk.
Marquees are perfect for all aspects of a music festival. The above marquee was used as a cover for seating at the Moonbeams Festival at Wold Top Brewery near Hunmanby.
Marquee Building Extension
Using a frame marquee as an extension to a building can in this case double the floor space. This marquee was used for The Southburn Christmas Fair in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research.
Over the years Florida Marquees have provided many marquees for charity events. We support a number of charities such as Macmillan and Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Our Managing Director is a member of The Driffield Rotary Club so we hold events here in Driffield.
Help The Heroes charity ball at Scarborough Castle. Marquees for dining, entertainment, bar and catering.
Marquees on TV
Some of our marquees have featured on television shows like The Hairy Bikers. An episode was filmed in our marquee at Burton Agnes Hall. We and the Burton Agnes Hall gardeners had to clear nearly a foot of snow from the lawn before we could erect the marquee!!
Many venues use corporate hospitality marquees. For example they may just use for dining if their dining room won’t accommodate the numbers required.
Marquees at Sports Grounds
Sports clubs are an ideal location for marquees as they usually have a large flat area of grass. Marquees have been supplied at sports grounds for weddings, christenings, birthday parties, beer festivals as well as corporate hospitality.
Great Yorkshire Show
One of the largest collection of corporate hospitality marquees can be found every year at The Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate. We supply companies such as Alchemy Catering and Anita Beatie.
The Driffield Show
Marquees are supplied to over 30 clients at the Driffield Show. In addition to marquees we also supply furniture and fencing.
In 2018 two of our customers won 1st and 2nd in the trade stand competition so we were obviously very proud! As a result we have been asked to provide the same marquees again for 2019.
