But, don’t take our word for it, let’s compare some basic features in two types of popular event tents, canopy tents and event domes. After comparing free-standing event domes vs. canopy tents, you’ll be able to make an informed decision as to what best suits your needs and fits your budget.  

Event Domes vs. Canopy Tents

Starting with the basic structure, did you know that geodesic-engineered domes have proven to be virtually disaster-proof during high winds, inclement weather, hurricanes and earthquakes?  Canopy tents have limitations on their ability to withstand wind, rain and snow loads they may require augmented set-up, anchoring and tethering that’s often not included in the basic package. 

Both domes and canopy tents are considered temporary shelters, in that they can be taken down when no longer needed, this often simplifies or bypasses many event building codes.  However, prefab domes solve engineering challenges associated with outdoor events that often pose limitations when it comes to safely erecting canopy tents.

Unlike canopy tents, freestanding domes are suited to all types of terrains; they are fully deployable to just about any location on the planet. Domes can be erected quickly with as little as 2 people using simple hand ratcheting tools.  The larger event domes will require a small crew and equipment, such as tall ladders, scaffolding and cranes.

Canopy tents may have to be taken down during severe weather conditions. When considering canopy tents for outdoor events, it’s wise to investigate and read the small print and search for any exclusionary clauses.

Event Dome Interior   

A dome’s structure is one of the most efficient interior spaces because air and energy circulate without obstruction.  If additional heating or cooling becomes necessary during seasonal extremes, there’s very little energy lost, due to the dome’s enclosed space.

The spacious dome interior offers limitless possibilities for creativity.  Its circular design encloses the greatest volume of interior space with the least amount of surface area.   

Walls Talk with the Magic of Projection Mapping Domes

Event Domes have a structurally superlative capacity for projection and lighting innovation.  Projection mapping is a projection technology that transforms objects, places and scenes into captivating displays.

Projection Domes utilize high-powered projectors to their full advantage in delivering spectacular scalability.  In concert with Pacific Domes sister company, Chroma, they provide ‘outside the box’ artistry to every event hosting theme.
