Our 45th President Donald J. Trump’s visit in Dubuque, Iowa for a Community Leaders Meeting. Big Ten Rentals set up this event at Northeast Iowa Community College. We set up two stages (16’x24’ and 8’x24’), Pipe & Drop and Stanchions for this event.
Big Ten Rentals was contacted by our client to set up 160 piece stage with stairs for the last GOP debate before the Iowa caucuses. We set up this stage starting at 6pm Friday night (changed from its original midnight schedule) and got it ready for this event located at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, IA at 730 3rd Street Des Moines, IA

Most political events are usually rush jobs with little lead time, due to security reasons and planning factors. This presidential campaigning event for Donald Trump was no different. We received the call to set up several 5-row bleachers and multiple-sized “pipe and drape” at about noon and had the event set up by late in the evening. We get the calls because we are able to put big events together quickly.
