Plan Your Summer Corporate Events by Renting Equipment!

Plan those summer corporate events now!

If you’re like many businesses across the country, then it’s been a while since you’ve organized a big outdoor event for your corporate team. Since this year is already starting to go much better than last year, the summer months ahead of us are the perfect time to organize an event that they’ll never forget.


Whether you’ll be organizing a team building event, a corporate award ceremony, or simply a fun get-together for employees and their families, renting equipment will allow you to save money and streamline the planning process. Today, we’re going to take a quick look at a few fun summer corporate event ideas along with some equipment that you should consider renting.


Summer Corporate Event Ideas

Thanks to Florida’s warm weather, summer corporate events can be whatever you want them to be. Choosing a theme and location gives you plenty of options to make the most of your event. To get you started, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite corporate summer party ideas:


BBQ Picnic

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy some kind of barbecue. Most of the time, people can’t seem to get enough of it. You can either get the event catered, which is a wonderful idea, or turn it into a team-building activity where employees break off into groups and get together beforehand to create their greatest barbecue recipes.


Outdoor Movie

Thanks to the pandemic, a lot of people have been staying indoors and watching movies. Luckily, this is one activity that most people never seem to get tired of doing. Setting up an outdoor movie during your corporate event will allow people to relax and enjoy themselves. Just be sure that you select a film that will be appropriate for everyone who’s attending.


Beach Event

Florida’s beaches are a fantastic place to hold a corporate event. You can even set up your BBQ picnic in certain areas or split your employees into teams for a friendly competition of beach volleyball. The best way to enjoy the celebration, though, is probably to head down to a beach park where you’ll have easy access to facilities.


Summer Event Rental Equipment

As you can see, there are plenty of options when planning summer corporate events. If you want to get the most out of your upcoming event, you should definitely consider renting at least a few different types of high-quality party rental equipment.


Here are just a few ideas that are perfect for the summer:


General Items

The first thing that you should consider renting are the general items. This would include things like tables, chairs, tableware, silverware, and catering equipment, etc. Although you may be able to cobble some of these together yourself, it’s a lot better to get all of these items in one place and have everything appear more uniformed.


Large Tents

Outdoor corporate events are always the best, but you’ll want to protect everyone from the Florida sun. You can also rent side walls, fans, and misters to help keep everyone cool. Tents come in several different types and sizes, so you’ll definitely be able to find one that’s perfect for your event. And if you have enough outdoor space, you may even want to have multiple tents to divide up various activities.



We often talk about renting concessions equipment whenever children are present, but let’s face it – we all love concessions! No matter what type of event you’re having, supplying items like hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, nacho cheese, and soft pretzels will make everyone happy. Since you’ll be dealing with that Florida heat that we’ve touched on, you might also want to rent a snow cone maker of ice cream server!


Extra Items

There are plenty of other items that you can rent to make your summer corporate event even better. If you’re planning on having an outdoor movie, as discussed above, you’ll want to rent a screen and projector. Another option is to rent a dance floor along with audio equipment. If you expect a bunch of kids to be there, nothing says “great outdoor event” quite like a bounce house.
