As a sort of follow on from our last blog, which discussed the most popular reason to hire a marquee, we thought it might be interesting to see what the most popular reason was for people to hire a mobile bar – and what sort of events they are most commonly hired for.
Although our site is called marquee hire guide .com – we do have a number of different very popular sections, where you can search for local companies, or get quotes from these companies – things like loo hire, caterers, furniture hire, refrigerated trailer hire, etc etc. And we get literally 1000’s of enquiries across these sections each year. So we thought it would be a shame for our readers if we kept our statistical analysis solely to the marquee hire section!
So below is an analysis of the types of events that we received mobile bar hire enquiries for during 2014.
Now, as you would probably imagine, it is a similar split to the hire of a marquees.
But with even more emphasis on weddings. Just over 51% of our mobile bar hire / mobile cocktail bar hire enquiries in 2014 were for weddings.
And a further 22% were for birthday parties.
Many of these events may well have been held in marquees – but a big percentage of them will also have been in other kinds of venues – ranging from hotels to castles to village halls.
So with 73% of the mobile bar / mobile cocktail bar hire enquiries we received in 2014 accounted for by weddings and birthdays – what were the rest of them hired for?
I imagine you can hardly bear the tension, waiting to hear what they were for. I bet, as you read this sentence, you are thinking “why is this sentence so long?” Why won’t that handsome author just tell us what other events mobile bars were hired for. I have to be honest and say I am beginning to wonder why this sentence is so long myself – and I am writing it!
Well, anyway, here is a selection of what other kinds of events people wanted to hire mobile bars for in 2014, via our website:
Hen parties – with an emphasis on the cocktail bar / cocktail masterclass
Sporting events (including World Cup Final parties)
And many many more
