How to choose the perfect tent: Key Considerations

In the world of marquees, prices can vary widely, and it's easy to get lost among the many options available, as well as the differences between each manufacturer. In this section, we will review some key points to consider when making the optimal choice.

The dimensions

After selecting the appropriate type of event tent for your occasion, determining its size is the first consideration to make. This size will depend on the style of your event, including seating arrangements, tables (whether they are round, rectangular, or high-top without chairs), as well as additional spaces such as aisles, dance floors, buffets, or even a stage. A tent can be used in various ways: for press conferences, theatrical performances, dance clubs, sports facilities, or even as resaurant.

Here are some common examples to help you get an idea:

  • High-top tables without chairs: about 8 square feet per person
  • Rows of seats with theater-style chairs or benches: about 7 to 10 square feet per person
  • Rectangular tables and chairs: about 12 to 15 square feet per person
  • Round tables and chairs: about 20 to 25 square feet per person

Resistance to climates

When it comes to choosing a tent, resistance to all weather conditions is essential to ensure the comfort and safety of your event and guests. Grandchamp tents, manufactured in Canada, are specially designed to withstand all weather conditions, whether it's strong winds, heavy snow, intense sunshine, or heavy rain. Our engineers have worked to ensure that our structures are suitable for all seasons, ready to withstand the most extreme weather conditions.

The quality of materials

The two main materials that make up your tent are the frame and the vinyl. A high-quality tent must meet certain standards to be not only sturdy but also durable and functional over time. With our years of experience, we understand the importance of these materials. That’s why we highlight the essential components that define the durability and reliability of Grandchamp tents. Featuring an aluminum frame with 6005-T5 anodized extrusions and steel corner pieces, our tents are designed to withstand the most demanding conditions. For the coverings, we use 22 oz coated vinyl, fire-retardant approved to NFPA 701 and CAN/ULC-S109 standards. In addition to being UV ray opaque, our coverings are also treated against mold, ensuring reliable and long-lasting protection for your events.

Ease and modularity

Ease of installation is a key factor to consider before choosing your marquee. Depending on the terrain and your needs, your marquee should be easy to set up and take down, requiring only a few people. We've worked to make this process as simple as possible over time, offering you a practical marquee for your temporary needs. Additionally, modularity is another strength of Grandchamp marquees. Our structures can be modified with just a few pieces, whether to adjust the area, height, or even change the shape of the marquee from one event to another. Our system allows for these modifications by adding or removing a few pieces as needed.


In the world of event planning, the rapid and temporary deployment of spaces is often essential. Before choosing a tent, it is crucial to consider this aspect. You will frequently need to add lighting, sound systems, decorations, fire extinguishers, and other equipment. Our tents are equipped with the BOLT-ON system, allowing you to quickly and easily attach additional equipment and options. This is an important factor to consider when choosing your tent to avoid last-minute surprises.
