Air Conditioning Hire

Exhibitions & Outdoor Events

Exhibitions and special events are often held in temporary structures such as marquees or multi-purpose buildings which rapidly gain and retain heat from visitors, equipment and the summer sunshine. This can soon result in unbearably high temperatures and a less than enjoyable experience for delegates, guests or partygoers. But it needn’t be a problem keeping everyone comfortable and happy.

Our Event expertise

By their very nature, exhibitions, events and parties are temporary and therefore often held in venues with little or no permanent cooling or heating equipment. Marquees and other removable structures are common solutions, as are barns, community centres, and village halls. Any of these locations are likely to suffer from inadequate temperature control, particularly when filled with excited visitors and revellers. Andrews Air Conditioning Hire has been providing expert advice and industry-leading equipment to the events sector for decades. No matter what your location, type of event or number of attendees, we’re sure to have developed a solution for it before. We are confident that our unrivalled experience, extensive product range and proven ability to deliver the right equipment on time at the best price, mean you’d be wise to send us an invitation to provide a free, no obligation quotation.


High quality exhibitions need high-quality exhibits and a high-quality environment. You take care of the former and let Andrews take care of the latter. Running a successful exhibition or trade show is hugely demanding. Exhibitors need to be organised, displays need to be positioned and visitors need to be welcomed. The last thing on your mind is whether the temperature is going to be too hot or too cold. However, visitor experiences can easily be ruined by uncomfortable conditions. And if they don’t enjoy the event this time, it’s unlikely they’ll return. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to ensure your exhibitors and visitors rave rather than rage about your exhibition. You can rely on us to provide a powerful, discreet and cost-effective temporary air conditioning hire. From local events and shows to large scale multi-hall exhibitions, from single portable air conditioners to sophisticated water chillers and air handlers, we have the right equipment at the right price – right now. Call us for expert advice before rising temperatures make an exhibition of you.

Events and Parties

You might only get one chance to host that spectacular party or unforgettable event. Exhaustive venue selection, meticulous menu planning and creative guest list formulation can all be undone if your guests suffer in unbearable temperatures. That’s why we are often top of the invitation list for party planners and event managers. Our air conditioning hire experts are happy to advise on the number, location and type of air conditioners, fans and air handlers from our vast rental range. Our equipment is quiet, energy efficient and environmentally responsible. It’s ideally suited to ensure your event or party is remembered for all the right reasons – at a cost that you’ll find surprisingly affordable. Don’t forget that the unpredictable British weather can also dictate that temporary heating might also be needed at particular times of day, even though air conditioning is required at other times. Andrews Heat for Hire is the leading provider of portable heating solutions, ensuring we’re your perfect partner for event planning.
