2023 Illinois Graduation Parties
As we approach the middle part of May, the weather is starting to warm up and families with graduates are starting to look ahead to plan parties. Everywhere, you see signs in the yards – Congratulations Class of 2023. You know that soon, someone will need tents, tables and chairs. We started strong in early spring with several affordable graduation party rental packages that have seen so much interest we’ve already booked several weekends solid. The word on the street from the other event rental companies throughout the country is that 2023 is going to be a busy year!
One of the trends that our industry is noticing for 2023 is that more people are waiting for the last minute to book. This is going to create some problems as companies book up. Clients who are looking for those last-minute tents could be left with making do with whatever’s left. We are locking in clients and taking deposits for graduation parties through July already. Some of the most popular graduation party weekends are already booked to capacity. We’ve had to add new inventory to satisfy demand but we’re facing challenges of finding enough time to squeeze in all of the requests. Some of our larger tents like our 20×20 and 20×30 high peak frame tents are going out multiple times per week. Our advice is: please book as soon as possible – don’t wait. The longer you wait, the harder it’s going to be to find a company to book with. We’d love to do your event, but have limited time and resources and they’re available first-come-first-served.
2023 Graduation Party Trends
So what’s the hottest trends people are doing for 2023 Grad parties? First, graduation party packages are hot! Many shoppers are looking for an “all inclusive” package that is basically a one-stop-shop for graduation party rentals. We’ve adjusted our packages to include more items – table covers, lighting and free delivery. Making them more of a rent-it-and-forget-it type situation where clients can pay one price one time and have everything needed to throw the hottest party.
We’re also seeing huge demand for our 4′ Marquee letters – with many of the most popular phrases like “GRAD” “23” and “CONGRATS” booked out for multiple weekends. The marquee letters are just catching on in our area. They remain one of the hottest new things that people are bringing to their parties. We have responded by making our Marquee letters available at a huge discount – 50% lower than some of our competitors. This has been a popular add-on for our packages and a great way to add a custom touch.
Maybe one of the biggest trends we’re seeing this year is the popularity of our lighting packages. Many families are choosing to throw parties that extend into the night. To meet this demand, we’ve offered several different lighting options. From a very low-cost, single strand perimeter lighting package to our full garden lights, this has been an extremely popular add-on.
