Stay Ahead of the Game Social distancing isn’t going anywhere so it’s important for your party rental company to provide options for social distancing. Having a comprehensive plan to provide space to help people separate will help put your customers at ease about having a safe and healthy event. Some options to consider are creating additional seating outdoors or under a temporary expansion tent, or repurposing smaller gathering spaces. Consider adding large king or queen banquet tables to your inventory to allow room between guests. Overall, understanding the new protocols and putting an action plan into place, will help your upcoming events run smoothly.
