What is a pop-up marquee and how is it used?

A pop-up marquee or branded marquee, also known as a promotional gazebo, business marquee or a canopy, not only protects you from the harsh Australian weather but can also help promote your brand and set you apart from the competitors. A branded marquee is commonly used in trade shows, expos, sporting events, schools, and outdoor parties.

A pop-up marquee is designed to be lightweight and portable while still having adequate coverage and protection for your clients at any outdoor event. It is a portable, easy-to-set-up single-piece tent with a classic “scissor frame” structure. Our promotional marquees include an internal top scissor-frame structure that adds structural stability and allows them to pop up and down in under a minute. Our customers love the 3x3m branded gazebo, which can comfortably accommodate 15 people.

Some of the most popular styles are:

Things to keep in mind before purchasing a marquee

  • Type of Metal – Steel is used on the structure of many branded gazebos and pop-up marquees on the industry. When exposed to rain and other weather conditions, the structure would rust, which not only looks unpleasant but also weakens the frame, leaving it unusable. The extra-strong aluminium used in our business marquees, will not erode, so a little rain won’t hurt.
  • Frame Thickness – Thicker frames allow you to feel like you are getting the best since they appear to be more durable, but they are also more difficult to transport and set up. Our marquees are lightweight, easy to carry and durable.
  • QualityTo protect yourself from rain and sun, make sure the canopy cloth is waterproof and UV resistant. There are inexpensive promotional marquees available on the internet for under $100 but be cautious because a low-cost branded marquee is usually built using substandard materials, and the possibilities of your roof collapsing in a few minutes of rain are high, and you may only get one usage out of it. The most important consideration is the ink that is used for printing as this determines the longevity of your branding, we use only Italian inks which are the best in the world and will keep your branding looking fresh and bright for longer.

We offer high-quality, sturdy, and long-lasting aluminium frames in a range of sizes and colours, suitable for professional, commercial, and personal branding We have four unique styles of plain or branded marquees to accommodate all needs and budgets.
