Branded Exhibition and Event Shelters

We have a wide range of branded event shelters ideal for use at outdoor trade shows, exhibitions, events, festivals and fairs. Each outdoor event shelter features a high quality, branded canopy that is waterproof and UV resistant - offering maximum shelter from all types of weather. 

Each customised event shelter is dye-sublimated to create ultra-bold, high-definition artwork that stands out amongst the crowd. Designed to attract the attention of event visitors, these branded event tents offer maximum brand visibility and usability. 

The water-resistant shelters are specifically for use outdoors and can be used in wet weather for multiple-day events. Our range includes a selection of different styles, from traditional aluminium frame tents to inflatable event tents and customised canopies. 

Despite the size of each event tent, they each remain lightweight and portable, with each one being supplied in its own transportation bag. The fast, tool-free assembly makes preparing for your event exceptionally easy. 

The event shelters are available with branded sidewalls which create extra branding space, as well as additional shelter. This means you have the choice of creating an open or closed-off event area for meetings with clients. 

We offer a range of anchoring solutions so that each branded event tent can be secured down to both hard and soft ground. These include weighted bases, guy ropes and tent pegs, as well as water-filled barrels which offer the most security in high winds. Depending on which outdoor event shelter you choose, along with the anchoring solution, most of our event tents can withstand wind speeds up to approx. 18mph.

Frequently Asked Questions

An event shelter, also known as a tent or gazebo, is a collapsible ‘mini-marquee’ that can be assembled rapidly, and which folds down into a carry bag for easy storage and transportation. Event shelters are available in different shapes, sizes and colours; with dye-sublimation printed canvases personalised with your choice of branding.

Event shelters are temporary shelters that are designed for outdoor use at events, exhibitions, hospitality venues, fairs and other venues where you might require shade from the sun and shelter from light rain. They are not suitable for use during strong or very inclement weather, however, they are suitable for use indoors. 

In addition to providing shelter, event tents elevate your branding so that you can be seen from all angles. They can be branded edge to edge with your artwork and logos making your display stand noticeable and recognisable. 

Our event shelters are designed to offer shade from the sun, and shelter from gentle rain or drizzle; for temporary outdoor use only. They should be deconstructed immediately and packed away safely if the weather changes to heavy rain or high winds.  If left out in rain for extended periods of time the water-resistant canopy can become saturated and begin to leak. 

Our event shelters are designed to withstand winds of up to Beaufort scale 4 (13-18mph/21-29kph approx) when pegged into the ground or weighed down, with no side ‘walls’ fixed in place. How well the structure holds up in the wind will vary, this is dependent upon the ground into which you have fixed the pegs and how many ‘walls’ are in place. While our event shelters have been tested within these parameters, we recommend taking down your structure immediately during inclement weather to prevent damage or injury.

Our standard printed gazebo-style event shelters are available in the following sizes:

  • 2m x 2m gazebo
  • 3m x 3m gazebo
  • 3m x 4.5m gazebo
  • 3m x 6m gazebo

Our inflatable event shelters are available in the following sizes:

  • 3m x 3m
  • 4m x 4m
  • 5m x 5m
  • 6m x 6m
  • 7m x 7m
  • 8m x 8m

We also sell a 10m printed star tent.

If you require event shelters with alternative dimensions, please reach out to our team on 01733 511030 to discuss possible solutions. 

Our printed gazebo event shelters fabric panels can be machine washed on a delicate 30° wash cycle thanks to the durability of the dye-sublimation print process. For the larger tent sizes, the canvases may be too large to fit in either residential or commercial washing machines, in which case, like our inflatable event shelters, the fabric can be sponged down with warm soapy water. 

For more detailed information about cleaning your event shelter, our team is on hand to offer advice.

Most event shelters can be erected by just two people in a matter of minutes. The first step is to set the aluminium frame upright and release it until it unfolds into the correct position. Next, you will need to stretch the branded canopy over the frame and secure it over each corner with the Velcro tabs and tie-straps provided. If you have additional ‘wall’ panels, you can then attach these to the frame using the Velcro tabs.

Our ‘one-pump- inflatable event shelter tents allow you to inflate all four legs through one valve. The constant and even airflow means the whole tent will rise and take shape at the same time for a speedy assembly in minutes. In addition to the one-pump system, many of our inflatable event tents have a return valve that ensures that if one leg deflates, the remaining three legs will not be affected and will remain inflated. 

Instructions on how to erect your event shelter are always included in the packaging. For more information, you can speak to our team on 01733 511030.

Yes, all of our event shelters are supplied with a high-quality carry bag included which stores the tent frame and canvas neatly. For products with printed walls, we will include a separate carry bag.

Every event shelter purchased from XL Displays is supplied with an anchoring kit which includes tent pegs and guide ropes to fix your tent to soft ground, including grass, soil and sand. Please note: this kit is not suitable for hard ground such as stone or tarmac, instead you will need to purchase a series of leg weights to weigh each leg of your event shelter down and prevent it from shifting.

Our event shelters start from £180 for a 3m x 3m gazebo, and range up to £6,677 for our top-of-the-line 7m x 7m branded inflatable one-pump X-Gloo tent - all kits include frames, canopies, ground pegs, guide ropes and a carry bag.
