The use of Tents are in every activity of day to day functions. Tents are used as habitation by nomads, recreational campers, soldiers, and disaster victims. Tents are also typically used as overhead shelter for festivals, weddings, backyard parties, major corporate events, excavation (construction) covers, and industrial shelters.
Tent Industry has increased its popularity since last 40 years. The appearance of tent décor has progressed as well. Initially from classic striped and yellow-toned push pole tents in the 1960s and 1970s, tents have evolved into magnificent structures incorporating finely tuned architecture and engineering. This evolution has included a transition toward more striking all-white and vinyl structures rather than canvas structures.
The industry hadn’t seen a change in shape in a long time when more uniquely shaped structures, such as high-peaked tension tents, emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Clear spans or A-Frame tents were developed in Europe to deal with severe weather, and in the last 10 years or so, clear span tents became popular in the India . AITDWO always addressed factors such as vulnerability to wind and the use of lighting in the décor, and have also provided guidelines to assure that tent structures are the proper size to safely accommodate the number of people expected for the event.
AITDWO indicated market changes as tent fabric suppliers, tent manufacturer and event professionals. According to supplier respondents, high raw material prices have been prompting suppliers to seek efficient production processes and to qualify better partners. There has been a shift in growth from laminated products to coated products and inexpensive fabric is being used more to save money.
AITDWO showed concern for event professionals, building codes and permit issues continue to grow and more engineered equipment were required. Commercial events shows a significant comeback with more clear spans being used. A decline in event budgets, generally, will reduce rentals, but improved tent designs have been introduced that will help to offset this with reduced labour costs. Event professionals indicated that the use of track-type frame tents will grow and become more popular. Price competition has become intense as businesses vie for projects profit margins are reduced as a result.
AITDWO try to guide all who are associated with Tent Industry business. In last one & a half year we have done roughly 26 seminars on GST & E Way Bills in various cities of India. We take up major problems & try to sort out as much as possible.
