More and more wonderful changes are happening every day at the ACE Conference Center! This week was no exception with the completion of our new tented event space! A tented party can take place almost anywhere, but not every outdoor area can handle a tented party. We’ve made sure we’ve covered all the bases to make our tented terrace ideal for any party or meeting. Come take a look!
Deciding to offer a tented event space means going in with your eyes wide open. Working with Ed Knight, the owner of EventQuip, an award-winning tent company located in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, we learned only a structural tent would fit our needs. Known for its excellent weather protection, EventQuip custom-designed a clearspan tent to fit the terrace perfectly! Only one company makes such incredibly durable and stylish tents (and has for decades) – Losberger from Germany. (Above, the tent arriving in its container after traveling by ship from Germany for a month!)
Once at EventQuip’s facility in Lansdale, the tent is carefully checked in piece-by-piece and crate-by-crate before it’s loaded onto trucks for installation at the ACE Conference Center. (If you look closely, you can see the glass panels that were designed as our tent walls!)
The dedicated crew from EventQuip worked in non-stop rain and cold temperatures for two days straight to stay on schedule.
Voila! Our new gorgeous tented terrace! High walls of glass allow guests to enjoy the views of the grounds and multiple sets of glass doors provide easy egress to and from the various stone terraces surrounding the tent. In fact, one set of doors exits right out to our new barbeque grill station! An ideal spot for an interactive food station for weddings, corporate events and social gatherings. This new event space can comfortably accommodate up to 300 guests for a reception and 200 for a seated dinner. The tent is also located next to our our Lafayette Ballroom and the Lafayette Event Deck. We invite you to come take a tour of these new exciting event spaces, call 610-825-8000 to schedule your tour.
