Late night political event setup for our client BNY Productions all the way on the west side of the state of Iowa in Larsen Park in Sioux City, Iowa. It was a political event for Hillary Clinton with 16 pieces of stage (dual structure), 125 bike barricade, 8′ x 30″ tables, 80 chairs, 4-step stairs, adjustable stairs and other items.
This event needed to be set up after 1:30 pm for this political rally. We set up a two-tiered stage with 4 sets of adjustable stairs, bike barricade for crowd control, black chairs plus pipe & drape parts (drape was provided).
We know what you are thinking…. “But wait, Big Ten Rentals is located in Iowa City, Iowa not Lincoln, Nebraska which is about 300+ miles West! It takes a special rental company to deliver multiple bleachers, bike barricades and black retractable stanchions for crowd control and pipe and drape for the backdrop. We were able to mobilize, deliver and set up for this event starting at 1:30 PM on Thursday, March 3rd.

The 2015 Christmas in Kalona event held on December 5th by the Kalona Chamber of Commerce was an amazing event filled with carriage rides, cookie decorating, crafts/vendor fair and of course our very own synthetic 32′ x 72′ ice skating rink with white fencing. They opened up the rink before the scheduled time due to demand.
We are at yet another Farm Progress Show! Orders for tents (frame and “rope and pole”) and clearspan structures are already flooding in to Big Ten Rentals for this event being held in Decatur, Illinois being held on September 1, 2 and 3. We are the supplier for several vendors already. Some of the items are: Custom covered bleachers with graphics, VIP area, security fencing, air conditioning, towable generators/power, LED lighting , tables and chairs and more for this event. We have been a trusted temporary structure supplier for 34 years!
The “push” is on to get ready for the large crowds on Black Friday. Two Big Ten Rentals employees have been driving around Eastern Iowa delivering a large quantity of bike barricade and belt style stanchions to several Target stores today.

We were called to set up a specialty designed motorcade tent. We started construction of it early morning October 21st 2014. This event was held at the University of Iowa’s campus in Iowa City. It had someone quite important to the nation attending, the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
