We are charged with providing a clean, safe, weather resistant venue. If we don’t, it doesn’t matter how much is spent on flowers, what food is served, or who the band is. The event can fail. Ed Knight, Founder & Owner, EventQuip
EventQuip can trace its beginning to 1982, when Ed Knight installed his first party tent while working for a tool rental store. Recognizing the potential in the rental industry, he set his sights on starting his own special event company and in 1994, with an inventory of 2 tents, 20 tables, 200 chairs and a three person staff, EventQuip opened its doors. Today, we stock over 700 tents, state of the art flooring systems, and everything necessary to create the most dependable event infrastructure. We have a large, experienced staff of dedicated professionals committed to the success of each and every event.
In the years since we began this journey, we’ve been a part of some amazing events. We’ve won six world class awards for our work (Can you believe they give out awards for such a thing? Well, they do, and they’re pretty hard to get, and we’re very proud of them!). Our tents and structures have seen history, playing host to Prince Charles and numerous Presidents (and their opponents!). They’ve witnessed many a bride and groom share their first dance as a married couple, have celebrated birthdays, mitzvahs and corporate anniversaries, and have taken part in fundraisers for charitable causes.
We love challenges and have earned a reputation as the company who knows the creative solution without compromising expectations or promising something that we can’t deliver. Our clients don’t want excuses, they want it right.
We’ve learned a lot over the years. Safety is always first. Communication is crucial. Details matter. Honesty is always the best policy. Trust is priceless. We have been honored to be a part of many events since our founding, and each one has helped make us the company we are today.
