Graduation season has arrived! During these exciting weeks, high schools and colleges across the United States will be celebrating the hard work and accomplishments earned by their graduating students. The focus of these celebrations is first and foremost the commencement ceremony followed by countless celebratory receptions. For both, weeks of planning beforehand is a requirement. One of the biggest dilemmas’ for any school is ‘how can we accommodate so many people?’ Chairs, tables, tents and staging are all needed for graduation events and most schools do not have that infrastructure or experienced set up personnel. Luckily, Event Rentals Unlimited has years of experience in providing equipment and set up services for graduation events – during this time of the year you could say we’re experts!
Questions we are frequently asked is ‘When should we start planning? When should we place our rental for equipment?’ Ideally, planning as early as possible is best but if time does not permit planning several months in advance we would advise planning, in early Spring. Our inventory is heavily requested during the graduation time of the year…the earlier we start the process of helping you with planning the better!
With thousands of students graduating, and countless family and loved ones in attendance, having the right amount of chairs is pivotal for any commencement ceremony’s success. Our extensive indoor and outdoor chair inventory makes this monumental task a cinch! This Atlanta graduation with a chair setup of 1,400 chairs was just one graduation commencement success that Event Rentals Unlimited helped with in 2015. Providing clean, quality chairs and then setting them up for our clients is just one service the ERU team provides.

Often overlooked, but important inventory items for any graduation reception include tables and linens. Whether you have a graduation gift table or you have a catered buffet for attending guests the need for extra tables and linens is a given. ERU offers a diverse inventory of table sizes and shapes and linen colors and sizes to fit any party need!
In a perfect world, graduation ceremonies would all be held on days with the most perfect weather – reality however is that a contingency plan for inclement weather is a must! Weather issues are always a possibility when hosting an outdoor event and tenting is the solution. From small audiences to large, tents ensure graduates and graduation guests remain cool in the sun and dry in the rain.
No commencement speech or ceremony can be conducted properly without staging. ERU’s staging inventory can accommodate presentation platform sizes from large to small. Safety of our staging equipment is of the highest importance and the efficiency of our set up team make our staging the best option to rent for your graduation event.
