Our Story

MARCH 2000

Auspicious Beginnings

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.

Stepping Up

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.


Becoming a Classic

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.

Gaining Steam

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 location with more than 50,000 sq ft and five loading docks that sits on four acres.

Branching Out

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.


Committed to You

Today, Classic Tents & Event Rental looks 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.

I have used Classic Tents for many years now and frankly don’t know what I would do without them. {Their} team is always available, excited to help with problem solving and provide high quality equipment and service at the best price. I have used various tent companies in many states over the past 20 years and never experienced a better company.



Perhaps, the most important trait of this team is that you actually speak with them – not an assistant, not a person in another country hired to satisfy the consumer. I walk {them} through my thoughts and {they} ALWAYS kindly listen and have a plan. Really, what I’m trying to express – CLASSIC is really a classic!!!



Just wanted to THANK YOU and your team for welcoming me with open arms yesterday! My visit was the highlight of my week!
