People love sharing stories and personal experiences – events are exactly that. Events uniquely connect, inspire and amaze us. For over 25 years, Party Rent Group has provided the perfect setup for international events of all sorts and sizes as the event equipment provider of choice. And all of this is about much more than just putting out enough tables and chairs. It’s about the atmosphere that is created; it's about the perfect interplay of concept and equipment.
What started in 1992 with 200 glasses and plates, 50 beer tent fixtures, 200 padded chairs and one big vision has now become an international event equipment provider supplying all kinds of events in all kinds of sizes. Back in 2001, CEO Joris Bomers opted for the franchise model in order to enable constant strategic growth. Since then, the Group has grown to include 24 owner-led branches and over 850 employees. Outside of Germany, Party Rent Group is also active in France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Scandinavia, Austria and Switzerland.
A logistical network stretching across all of Europe
Thanks to its decentralised structure, the Group can be found in many important urban centres across Europe. As a result, it can support and equip events at any time – locally, reliably and very flexibly. Its very high stock levels mean it can even supply enough equipment for large events.
The event equipment provider’s portfolio includes everything needed for an event. Besides tables and chairs, this also includes decorations; lounge and bar furniture; barstools; china; cutlery; glasses; counter and buffet systems; serving, table and buffet accessories; stages and presenting equipment; kitchen equipment; and heating and cooling systems.
However, Party Rent Group’s services also include much more than just supplying and delivering equipment. Party Rent helps its customers from the very beginning right through the event-planning process. Together with the event hosts, room concepts are developed for the event, with presentations visualised through CAD drawings and 3D renders. Experienced in-house staff can also help with the practical setup and disassembly.
High design standards
Thanks to its breadth and depth of stock, Party Rent Group is able to support all kinds of events and so offers maximum bandwidth. As well as cost-effective rented furniture for large-scale use, the Group can also supply numerous kinds of designer furniture to meet the highest standards – even in very high volumes. In order to meet its own high standards for design, the Group works closely with well-known designers and manufacturers. Party Rent Group also has its own in-house design team which regularly develops its own creations, custom-tailored for the events sector.
Together with manufacturers, the Group also makes special adjustments to many different kinds of furniture to make it fit for use at events. As a result, all of the furniture in its product range can be stored and deployed in a way that makes economic sense. Among other things, the Group also develops solutions for linking together rows of chairs at conferences. Special chair covers also protect designer furniture through transport and storage, making a decisive difference in quality assurance.
