Twenty-two manufacturers and suppliers to the tent rental industry are honored in the April–May 2020 issue of InTents magazine in the third annual Reader’s Choice Awards.

In December 2019, InTents asked readers to vote for the best of the best in 15 categories, ranging from Best Frame Tent Manufacturer to Best Rental Software Provider.

“Participation in our Reader’s Choice Awards was higher than expected,” says Mark Berriman, IFAI National Sales Manager. “So many companies were nominated within the 15 categories that it really highlights the amazing work taking place within this industry.”

In addition, Marty Haas, president of Milestone Event Rental, Cannon Falls, Minn., is the winner of the 2020 Reader’s Choice Awards voting contest! Industry member voters who left comments about their favorite products and services on the voting site were entered into a drawing for a Black Jack® fan from Big Ass Fans. With a 6.5-foot (2-meter) frame, the Black Jack creates airflow that spans one-third the length of a football field—perfect for large events.

InTents launched its Reader’s Choice Awards in 2018 to celebrate the publication’s 25th anniversary. The trade magazine delivers focused, credible information needed to stage safe and successful tented events. InTents is the official publication of the Tent Rental Division of the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI).
