Our Story

Launched in March of 2000, Classic Tents & Events was started by three investors who purchased tents once used in the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics. This would be the first piece of equipment in what would become one of the largest top-of-the-line rental inventories in the state.

One of the original investors, Ria Bruns stepped up to become the first CEO and president of the company. It was she, despite little to no experience in the industry, who would branch out to network and make a name for the company. Her work would set the tone for Classic Tents & Events, to become the reputable and customer-oriented company that it is today.

Ten years later, present owners Steven Eisenstein and Karen Alcock, would purchase the company. Steven had ample experience in the booming Atlanta hospitality industry, while Karen had worked alongside Ria in customer service and sales. Together, they would aim to make Classic Tents & Events a staple in the events and tent rental industry.

Following years of joining industry organizations, gaining experience, and forming local business partnerships, Classic Tents & Events picked up steam. Once operating out of a 12,000 sq ft building with only two loading docks, they moved to a 44,000 sqft location on four acres, and that had 5 loading docks.

Since then, their operation and services have continued to grow to better serve large-scale events throughout the Southeast. This includes new equipment, like a much-needed tent washing machine, a larger inventory, and the formation of a sister company; Coastal Restaurant Equipment Rental.

Today, Classic Tents & Events look to maintain their customer-service and solution-oriented approach to business, in an effort to not only meet but continuously exceed client expectations as a one-stop-shop.
