The strength, durability and size options offered by a tent structure make it an ideal enclosure for a variety of applications. Whether you are hosting a concert for a few hundred guests or a convention for a few thousand people, a tent structure can be designed to meet your specifications.

The possible uses for a tent structure are practically endless. Due to a considerably lower cost than constructing a traditional building or renting space for a temporary type of event, these types of enclosures are an economically sound choice as well.

A Few of the many uses of a Tent Structure

Concerts and Plays

Allsite’s tent structures are clear span, meaning they are free from beams or internal walls, making them ideal to serve as a venue with a large amount of seating and without obstructing the view of the stage.   The rugged frame of the tent allows for PA and speaker systems to ensure the sound is top-quality.

Plays and shows do not only happen on Broadway. Touring shows like Beauty and the Beast and Mamma Mia, as well as local productions can benefit greatly from a tent structure. The headache of cancelling and rescheduling outdoor shows due to weather disappears when the show can go on under shelter.

The curved nature of the enclosure and fabric walls help absorb sound and create a fantastic acoustic experience.

Hotel Banquets and Events

Hotels have chosen to construct tent structures for extra banquet or meeting space. This is an economical way to expand the hotel’s capacity without committing to a permanent building. Hotel management appreciates the flexibility of using these spaces for multiple uses, and thus, increasing revenue with rental opportunities.

Outdoor activities such as pool parties are a big income producer for some hotels. With a tent structure, you do not have to risk cancelling these revenue-generating events because of bad weather. Guests will stay comfortable and dry, no matter what the weather is outside.


With over 1,500 casinos in the United States, the gaming industry in this country continues to grow. Casino owners have also realized the advantages of a tent structure to expand their gaming facilities. The tent structure can be added on to an existing building or constructed as a complete stand-alone casino.

The modular construction of these fabric structures means there can be separate employee break areas, surveillance rooms, and executive offices. The sturdiness of the tent structure makes it more than temporary. They are quite capable of standing strong for months and even years.

Trade Shows and Conventions

Often times, finding a venue to host several thousand people during a select time period creates quite a challenge, especially in an area where these large venues are scarce. A tent structure can easily house participants, trade show booths, stages, and separate rooms, if needed.

These clear span buildings provide an open space that enables trade show exhibits, keynote speeches, and meetings to exist under one enclosure. With a height of up to 54’, two-story booths are easily accommodated.

Automotive Events

Car Maintenance Temporary Building

From local to nationally known annual car shows, a fabric enclosure is an obvious choice for protecting valuable automobiles and the show attendees. Ingress and egress for the cars is made easy with steel overhead door options.

Car shows often showcase vehicles worth an exorbitant amount of money. The special paint on these cars is best protected from the sun’s damaging UV rays. With a Temporary Fabric Structure (TFS) these treasured cars’ paint is protected and the vehicles are kept in pristine condition.

Car auctions are another automotive event that can benefit greatly from a tent structure. The modular construction of Temporary Fabric Structure (TFS) allows for hundreds of cars to be displayed for potential buyers and then brought to the auctioneer for sale. In addition, they can be moved and relocated to follow the event if multiple dates and locations are planned.

No matter what type of event you are hosting, Allsite has a variety of tent structures ready to be installed, and we can do so in a matter of days or weeks. To speak to one of our design experts, please call us at 888.599.5112 or visit our website here for more information.
