A close look at MARQ our premier marquee

Australia is an outdoorsy nation, and we have the right weather for it. Except for odd rainy weeks, we can go out and enjoy the sunshine all through the year. That’s probably why we hold so many festivals, whether it’s for music, food, or networking.

There’s one thing these events have in common. Spending a few hours on the beach or footie field is fun, but standing in the sun all day trying to sell stuff is a bit more challenging. If you happen to be grilling, it’s worse. The heat from the cooktop warms you up even more.

What you need at an event like that is a tent. But why settle for ordinary canvas when you can have a MARQ? Here at DSA, the MARQ is our best-selling marquee, and we guarantee premium construction and value. It has several advantages over the standard re-usable tent.

One, unlike ordinary tents, our MARQ canvas is printable. Customise it with high definition full-colour visuals so that the entire marquee is a billboard for your products and services. All its surfaces can be printed, including the awning, canopy, rear curtains, and side curtains.

Two, it has an open front and partially open sides. The half-window marquee sides allow air to circulate freely, which is helpful in a hot, crowded exhibition stand. The side windows will enable you to interact more efficiently with customers, and if you plan your stand effectively, you can place a table on each side and serve more customers at once.

The open front and sides mean you get maximum protection from the sun, but you can still enjoy a fresh breeze. Three, the marquee is constructed using lightweight materials. This is crucial for outdoor events, because you have so much heavy gear to move around, so anything lighter is a huge load off your mind – and your back.

Four, despite its low weight, the MARQ is firmly anchored to the ground so it won’t be tipped by high winds or bustling crowds. The marquee frame is made of anodised aluminium. It’s held in place using tent pegs and water tanks for enhanced balance and stability.

The space available in the MARQ is adequate. The internal area is 3 square metres so that it can hold a good number of staff and customers. It’s extremely easy to set up and dismantle. Both can be done in minutes. If you’d like to spice up your stand, you can pair it with portable banners from DSA, like adsails or adwings. They fit snugly on the MARQ’s support frames.

Another option is to use DSA flooring material to form a base for your marquee. It’s not strictly necessary, but it can add a nice touch, especially for evening events. DSA Promodek flooring can be backlit to get your stand some extra attention after the sun goes down.
