Every big milestone in your life needs to be celebrated.
Why? Because it’s the big moments we remember: how we
felt, who was there and what it looked like. And that’s where
Stretched Events comes in. We’re Australian event tent legends, based in
Melbourne – and we help you deliver outstanding experiences
in spaces that drop jaws. And it all started with two little
words: “I do”.
Planning a wedding is no mean feat – just ask Troy.
The idea for Stretched Events came out of
planning his own nuptials. He wanted it to be authentic,
personal and spectacular – not just for him and his partner,
but for everyone invited. And boy, was it a mission!
Luckily for Troy, he could draw on his construction
background and knew what to look for in an event tent.
With 15 years of building experience – and a strong eye for
detail – he quickly figured out that what he wanted didn’t
exactly exist. Most of the tent companies he spoke to were
slow to respond, didn’t factor in his ideal location and weren’t
thinking about the ‘big picture’. So, he decided to do
something about it.
Troy launched Stretched Events in 2012 and it went off with a
bang! They brought festivals, weddings, conferences and long
lunches to life in surprising and often stunning landscapes.
Their passion for producing high-quality, memorable events
was infectious. Meanwhile, Tim was off living a different, but
parallel kind of life.
Tim’s love of momentous events came from 10 years of hitting
the local and global music and arts festival circuit. He longed
for the immersive experiences that these types of festivals
had to offer. So much so that for New Year’s Eve in 2015,
Tim and a group of his friends decided to create a summer
festival in South Australia.
Nestled in the sand dunes, the dry and barren desert
landscape wasn’t going to provide any shade or protection
from the harsh Australian sun. So the crew invested in a
stretch tent and turned it into the festival’s community
kitchen and chillout zone for punters.
While the festival presented its own challenges, buying and
hiring stretch tents soon became Tim’s passion.
So when he and Troy crossed paths, they bonded over their
shared experiences and became good mates, ready to turn
Stretched Events into something bigger and better:
Stretched Events Tent Hire.
Troy and Tim have big plans for Stretched Events. In development soon
will be innovative, custom designed tents suited specifically
to the Australian landscape. They’re also looking to build
their ‘dream team’ – a down-to-earth, events-obsessed crew
to expand into more locations around the country.
While the events industry will continue to change, what will
stay the same is this: events are LIFE, and Stretched Events is your best
mate when it comes to celebrating life’s big moments.
