Big Ten Rentals sets up the 2017 Iowa Soul Festival in the pedestrian mall of Iowa City. IA. The main stage was made up of our staging with a 20′ x 20′ Tentnology frame tent over it and bike-rack barricade to keep people from getting too close to the performing artists. We also setup several other tents for vendors and other events going on at the ped mall.
We took our temporary “Traditional White Event Fencing” or “Art Deco fencing” to Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois for a company picnic.
We set up this fundraising event for the Hawkeye Chapter of 100+ Men Who Care. We were able to get the streets closed only 2.5 hours before the beginning of this event. We set up two 20′ x 20′ frame tents used as a beer & wine garden, presentation stage, security fencing (to keep under-age drinkers out), tables and chairs before the event.
This event raised over $52,000 for local charities.
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.
See our available crowd control options.
This event is taking place at the Marriott in Coralville in conjunction with Gym-Nest. Two 5-row bleachers (seats 50 each) were placed on both sides of our towable 45′ hydraulic bleacher (seats 273 people).
