5 Things To Know Before Buying A Pop Up Marquee

Pop up marquees are an ideal way to promote your brand or company at events, promotions, or just about any location where protection from the elements is required. With a marquee, you will have an area that provides shelter from the elements and catches the eye of potential customers in a crowded area.

Pop up marquees are brilliant because they are easy to set up and can be taken down fairly quickly. This makes them perfect for outdoor events such as festivals and sporting events and indoor occasions like conferences and trade shows.

However, there are 5 things that you should check before purchasing a pop up marquee.

  1. Size – How big do you want your pop up marquee to be?
  2. Setup time – How easy is it to setup?
  3. Walls – Do you want to add walls?
  4. Accessories – Do you want any accessories?
  5. Printed – Do you want it to be printed?

1. Size – How big do you want your marquee to be?

At Selby’s, we have three marquee sizes – 3m x 3m, 4.5m x 3m, and 6m x 3m. If you need something bigger, you might want to consider getting a gable.

The size of your marquee needs to be big enough for your intended purpose. For instance, if your marquee is being used to attract interest from customers, it needs to be big enough to hold enough people comfortably.

2. Setup time – How easy is it to setup?

One of the main purposes of a pop up marquee is it should be easy to setup. However, some will take a little more time, and this usually relates to their size as well as how their frame was built. At Selby’s, our pop up marquees can take between 2 to 5 minutes to setup.

A reputable marquee seller will be able to provide a rough estimate of how long their marquee takes to set up. This will be useful if you are planning to use your marquee several times a year.

3. Walls – Do you want to add walls?

With pop up marquees, you have the option to add walls (full wall or half wall) or just stick with the roof and frame only.

If you’re buying a marquee for outdoor use, you may want walls to protect people from the elements. With walls, it also opens up branding opportunities from all angles (left, right, and back).

However, if you are purchasing a marquee for indoor use such as an exhibition, you might want it to be open on all sides. This will allow people to visit your marquee from all directions.

4. Accessories – Do you want any accessories?
