May = Mayhem

If you are remotely associated with the events industry, heck, if you are a living, breathing, Californian, May is the month that EVERYTHING happens, May is the month for events. Weddings, graduations, parties, festivals, concerts, and so on. I think it is safe to say, truly, this last month was weird, right? It started off feeling like summer—with temperatures getting up to 90 degrees, but then things took an unexpected turn.

All of a sudden, the clouds rolled in and brought the rain with them. As stated before, May is peak event season. Our phones started ringing off the hook, with people in panic mode because they did not plan on rain. Mind you, these were new calls. When May started, we were already booked solid, with our huge inventory SOLD OUT. So the rain is coming, panic mode is setting in for people who didn’t plan on tenting. The rain spooked everyone. Now, factor in the our existing clients and their reservations. Immediately, they too, had to modify their event plans, essentially needing more tents. We were sold out. BAM, mayhem (get it? May-hem😉)! 

What does a company do in a situation such as this? Well, first, you get all hands on deck. Explain the goal of shifting equipment, making a plan and executing as best as possible. You figure out ways to move inventory, staff intelligently, and balance the demands of the clients and the demands of executing installs and pick ups safely.

Our office staff and field operations really stepped up to the plate and was able to handle everything the month threw at us with strength and determination. The dedication, resilience, and overall stamina of our field crews was unmatched and certainly did not go unnoticed. May confirmed that Made in the Shade is full of incredibly hardworking people who are dedicated to meeting the needs of each and every customer, no matter the scale of the eventBring on June! 

We’ve got you covered!

We have been working with Made in the Shade for all of our clients tenting needs for over 10 years. They continue to provide exceptional service and products, going beyond when the unforeseen happens. During one of our own personal tragedies, they were right there to help us with a temporary shelter so we could continue working. Thank you MITS Family!

Fleet Feet Event Management has been a client of Made In The Shade since 2009. I always feel we have so many options to choose from when we establish our needs beyond the tent itself, fans, lighting, heaters, clear decorative walls. The Made In The Shade team has been so consistently professional, honest, hard-working and dependable, and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with you.
