Here at On Tour Events, we've spent a lot of time discussing our event equipment hire services. We feel that we have every right to tell you all about the industry track record we've built up around hiring out event lighting, sound equipment, LED screens, and all manner of staging and sets.
But what you may have missed is that our repertoire goes far beyond those admittedly broad buckets. We actually do a lot of our own manufacturing. Sometimes that's as part of delivering one of the above-mentioned hiring services. But in most cases, we offer custom solutions as part of one of our all-encompassing events solutions.
Unlike some other technical event production companies, we mean what we say when we talk about providing a turn-key solution to your event production needs. Whether you need an LED-lit mobile bar, or you need us to deliver custom-manufactured seating, we've got you covered.
With that in mind, let's use this space to tell you a little bit more about what we can offer you for your next event, whether that be an extravagant wedding or a nationally-televised awards ceremony.
Mobile Bar Hire London, Surrey, and Beyond
Regardless of the occasion, most events require a bar. Of course, some venues will have a bar in place already with no need for any extra investment. But what about those taking place in unusual venues such as country mansions, or in outdoor marquees? Wouldn't it be great to install a full LED-lit bar complete with branded colours, logos, and branding? Doing so adds a real touch of class and exclusivity to your event and will undoubtedly impress your attendees.
Whether you are putting together an outdoor music festival or an outdoor wedding, the bar is a real hub of activity, which means your guests will really appreciate something as unique as a custom-manufactured bar. As mentioned, we can incorporate LED technology into the design to make your mobile bar solution glow in the dark, or shimmer in the sunlight. There's no end to the customisation options!
Of course, as busy as the bar may be at your event, it's only one piece of the puzzle. In most instances, it makes sense to expand your custom manufacturing requests to a whole range of furniture, which we'll now cover in a little more detail.

One aspect of events that is becoming increasingly prevalent is themes. When it comes to design, there's no point going to the effort all mulling through mood board after mood board to create an aesthetic for your occasion, only to cheap out aspects such as seating that ruin the overall look and feel.
For instance, if the theme for your wedding reception production is black and gold, it wouldn't make any sense to settle for white chairs when you can't find anything else suitable. We can manufacture anything you require for your event, even if that means taking the unusual step of making gold-coloured seating. Why not? It's your wedding!
By contrast, if you're running a bar concession at a national music festival, you can build a massive buzz around your concept with bright, LED-lit, funkily-designed tables and chairs which perfectly match your glowing custom bar. The point is, there aren't many limits when it comes to designing custom furniture for events. Whether you just want a bespoke bar that makes a real splash at your event, or you want custom furniture to fit in with an overall event theme, here at On Tour Events, we can make it for you, no problem.
Which Events Benefit the Most from Custom-Manufactured Furniture?
As you'll have noticed, we've already touched upon some for the events that could really benefit from incorporating custom-manufactured furniture and props. However, it's worth spending a few minutes to delve a little deeper into those events where investing in this type of service can make the most significant impact.
As mentioned, of the biggest requests we get for custom mobile bar hire come from wedding events. We work with several reputable wedding planners directly, and their esteemed clients often demand a theme. The problem? Most of the time, furniture doesn't exist to meet those requirements, which is when they approach us to ask if we can help out. Of course, we are more than happy to oblige and get the ball rolling on the design process.
It's a similar story for awards ceremonies and gala dinners. Both events usually have overall design themes that planners and organisers wish to stick to. However, sometimes seating options are challenging to get hold of or don't exist in the quantities required.
For instance, when a client approached us to supply 100 pink LED cubes with matching LED-lit tables for their informal reception seating area, they had exhausted all options with their usual suppliers. Their usual partners only had a dozen each and no facility to quickly manufacture or order any more stock. It's fair to say, while they should have come to us in the first place, they haven't used any other technical event production partner since!
Another common request for custom mobile bars and LED furniture come from conferences. This is less on the guest side, and more related to the conference set design. Over the years we've supplied all sorts of bespoke furniture for conference sets, including deck chairs, hay bales (yes, hay bales!), bean bags, and custom LED-lit background props such as cubes, oblongs, and benches. We've pretty much done it all when it comes to designing and manufacturing custom furniture for conference events.
So if you've decided that custom-manufactured furniture is the way to go for your event, how does the process work? And why should you choose On Tour Events as opposed to other outfits?
What Goes into Hiring a Mobile Bar, Custom-Manufactured Seating, and Other Bespoke Event Furniture?
In many ways, the process reflects that of many other event equipment hiring processes we have here at On Tour Events. Firstly, you approach us with what you need. In most cases, our clients start with laying out their AV needs and stage requirements before moving on to custom furniture. However, in some cases (such as in the scenario above), we are only tasked with designing, manufacturing, and installing custom furniture on-site.
Once you've relayed to us what you need, we start with the design process. We take in your event brief, preferred materials, and other requirements before getting to work. We then present you with our initial mock-ups before tweaking them to your satisfaction. Once you're happy with the design of your mobile bar, custom seating, or any other custom furniture, we then spend a few weeks manufacturing everything and getting it ready for transportation.
Once everything is ready, we then load up our trucks and head out to your venue to set everything up in whichever layout or manner you prefer. If you have chosen one of our LED-lit furniture options, then we'll also arrange the necessary power arrangements. Many of our "off the shelf" LED furniture options operate on batteries that last 8-10 hours, which is more than enough for most events.
Then, once the event is over, we'll be back to take everything away for you. If you are planning on reusing your custom-manufactured furniture, we can securely store your items in one of our warehouses until you need it again for your next event. How does that sound for a hassle-free solution?
So onto the next question, why choose us? (As if we haven't already convinced you!)
Why Choose On Tour Events for Your Custom-Manufactured and LED-Lit Furniture?
Here at On Tour Events, we are immensely proud of the industry reputation we've managed to build over the last three decades.
