Storage for event equipment

In the massive logistics of events, storage is critical to the smooth running of the event itself, as well as to the long-term future of the company. Indeed, organisations can't afford to renew their equipment every year because it has been damaged or stolen.

Are you an events project manager, branch manager or sales representative? Discover how HOMEBOX can support you to meet your storage needs, by taking into account your requirements in terms of availability, proximity and security.

Storage for which types of event?

There are many sizes of storage units, providing a wide range of suitable solutions for local and international events, such as: 

  • Festivals (The Festival d’Avignon, Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Angoulême International Comics Festival, the Cannes Film Festival, etc.)
  • Trade fairs and exhibitions (The Foire de Paris, wedding and bridal trade shows, Japan Expo, etc.)
  • Sporting events (Vendée Globe, Tour de France, Paris Marathon, etc.)
  • Art exhibitions and openings
  • Functions and galas
  • Concerts (Vieilles Charrues, Francofolies)
  • Company seminars and parties
  • Seasonal events (Christmas market, Nice Carnival, Braderie de Lille)
  • Weddings
  • Meetings
  • Etc.

For instance, our team in Cannes La Bocca works every year with clients in the framework of the Cannes Film Festival, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and the Monaco Grand Prix. It takes equipment delivery for French and international companies. And it also helps yacht owners to empty their boats so that they can organise one-off events.

Storage for what type of event equipment?

Storage can help event professionals save space and increase efficiency. That's why we strongly recommend that our customers group together their equipment by type. This includes: 

  • Furniture (tables, chairs, counters, displays, easels, etc.)
  • Accessories (crockery, bouquets, tablecloths, etc.)
  • Communication tools (signage, flyers, goodies, POS displays, posters, brochures, business gifts, etc.)
  • Stand components (marquee, tent, podium, stage, etc.)
  • Decorative elements
  • Lighting and sound equipment
  • Audiovisual and IT equipment
  • Demo stocks and products
  • Etc.
HOMEBOX are a pleasure to work with and I am happy to recommend them. They are extremely flexible and helpful. They are valued supplier when we are working on events in Cannes.

Very good experience with Homebox Colombes. From the initial enquiry to when I emptied my storage unit, everything was perfect. Excellent communication, responsiveness, competitive rates as well. They loaned me a moving truck which was a big plus. I highly recommend it!
