A Short Bit About me

I'm Spencer King, an ex-marquee erector. This blog is designed to help those running a hire business or thinking of starting. I don't claim to know everything, I'm just trying to help people avoid the mistakes I made! Check out our event planning section for advice on planning your own marquee event. Please contact us if we can help or offer advice in any way.

Marquee Market & Merry Xmas

A marquee related website that could prove useful is marquee market, in their own words:

Marquee Market is a new website that aims to bring under one roof a range of functions to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for information/resources aimed directly at marquee companies and other event industry providers.  The website, which has been built by a team experienced in growing an established marquee hire business is still very much evolving and currently has facilities for;

  • advertising marquees for sale and other event equipment for sale (free adverts before end Jan 2012)
  • a platform for advertising marquee hire jobs (free adverts before end Jan 2012)
  • a manufacturers special offers page
  • a marquee cross hire listing

The aim is to build an informative website that offers up to date, relevant information which encourages communication within the industry. The Marquee Market team have many new ideas that will be introduced in the coming months – so do keep in touch!

If the website takes off then it could be a really useful addition to the marquee hire industry.

There won’t be a blog next week, frankly with a substantial and alcoholic Christmas planned it’s probably for the best. So I’d like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, thank you for all of your business in 2011 and here’s to a busy and successful 2012 🙂

We are closing at lunchtime on Friday 23rd December and opening again on Tuesday 3rd January 2012

Thanks for reading
