Organising an event is hard work, there are a lot of things that need to be considered, such as portable toilet and shower hire, and often enough event organisers learn this the hard way.
First and foremost, have you established your budget? This will determine the scale of the event, whether you keep it small but extravagant, or larger but more simple. You should also account for circumstances that may affect you financially, such as weather changes, last minute cancellations from vendors and other unforeseeable situations.
Once you’ve established your budget and the size of your event, you need to consider the basic requirements of your guests – at the very least you will need to provide access to food and drink and toilet facilities, and supply enough to cater for the size of your audience.
By this point, you should already have your structure and a rough timeline in place. You can then begin book entertainment and vendors, such as live music, food stalls and toilet and shower hire. The entertainment and vendors you may wish to hire will vary between different events, but as long as food, drinks, and toilets are provided, you know you’ve covered the basic necessities.
Other things to consider;
Temporary flooring. If your event is at a location which may be uneven or may become muddy in rain, then it will be worth considering ground support. Site Event can provide this with our temporary trackway.
Marquee hire. Nothing can dampen spirits like the heavens opening up during an event, so providing outdoor shelter such as marquees or tents is a great solution for keeping guests dry and happy!
Showers. If your event involves camping, it would be essential to provide shower hire so that your guests can feel clean and hygienic.
A point of reference. If your event is a large scale festival, a main information hub could be useful as a point of reference for your guests. Site Event can provide ticket booth hire, which can be used as either a ticket booth or as a central hub. These can also be customised to fit your branding! Read more.
Assistants. If your event involves a lot of planning, it might be worth sharing the duties between an assistant or two so that you don’t become overwhelmed. This could either be with friends or family, or hired in professionals to help ensure everything runs smoothly.
Site Event can supply your event with toilet and shower hire, from our standard eco loos which cater for up to 50 guests and can be provided in large quantities, to our luxury and themed toilet trailers in variety of set-ups which can cater for up to 450 guests. We also have shower units to hire in set ups of 4 bays, 6 bays and 10 bays.

The loos were amazing
We had the Gypsy Caravan and the Potting Shed, and will order them again at every event we have in the future!
