My Event Tent app

Are you an event planner, production manager, caterer, or mother-of-the-bride planning an outdoor event? Ever thought about how much easier your job would be if you could plug in a few numbers and accessory items, and then receive the approximate tent size and square footage you need?

Well, look no further because the My Event Tent app has arrived! Developed for the Android Market and iTunes App Store, the app can be downloaded for free. Choose from a checklist of options relating to rentals, such as the type of event, number of guests, accessories, and other requests. The approximate tent size and square footage required is then calculated and displayed. At that point, you can choose to proceed to the next step and submit the information for a quote. The request is forwarded to specific Tent Rental Division member companies within your zip code area. This is especially beneficial for planners who serve multiple cities.

Take our word for it…download the My Event Tent app via Android Market or iTunes App Store (coming soon). Your event (and your customer) will thank you for it!
