About Us

E ventQuip can trace its beginning to 1982, when founder & owner, Ed Knight installed his first party tent while working for a tool rental store.

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 1700 tents & structures- everything necessary to create the most dependable event infrastructure; most importantly a large, experienced staff of dedicated professionals. In the years since we began this journey, we’ve been a part of some amazing events and are honored to have received many AWARDS. We love challenges and have earned a reputation as a company that provides creative solutions, without compromising expectations.


Rules we live by







We are humbled to be a part of so many events and projects since our founding.

Each one has helped make us the company we are today.
