Renowned Queensland event company, Moreton Hire, will launch their never-before-seen black marquee this week at Queensland’s premier event; Brisbane Festival.
Hosting the Santos GLNG Lounge for the duration of the festival, the new marquee will hold the best seats in the house to watch Brisbane Festival’s iconic, nightly light, laser and special effects show. Sitting directly under the Wheel of Brisbane and on the shores of South Bank, the new tent will be the first of its kind for Queensland and something new and unique for special events.
Brisbane Festival Artistic Director Noel Staunton said the new black marquee adds a level of sophistication to the Santos GLNG Lounge which will be the perfect place to enjoy some drinks while taking in the spectacle of Brisbane Festival.
“The new marquee from Moreton Hire is going to look fabulous as part of the Brisbane Festival hub at South Bank’s Cultural Forecourt,” Mr Staunton said.
“It really has the wow factor and we are grateful to our partners Moreton Hire for helping to make Brisbane Festival a wonderful event.”
Featuring a unique curved roof design that enables multiple marquees to seamlessly join side by side; the marquee was the perfect choice for Brisbane Festival due to its space functionality, curved roof and black exterior – something different from the standard white offering.
Moreton Hire CEO Roger Motteram said the tent is an exciting addition to their marquee range and Brisbane Festival was the perfect platform to launch the structure.
“Moreton Hire is proudly Queensland born and bred so we relish the opportunity to support an iconic Queensland event like Brisbane Festival as the launch pad for the marquee into the Australian market,” said Motteram.
