Founded in 2006, Intent Productions was the first company to introduce the stretch tent to the UK. We opened our U.S. business in 2010 followed by our French & Swiss Alps office in 2014.
We work solely with stretch tents. Our aim is to make our clients’ lives simple whilst producing spectacular end results. To achieve this we work closely with our manufacturer to develop our stretch tents and ensure they are the best on the market. Installation side, we are constantly honing our skills and are now regarded as the most experienced, reliable and trusted people in the industry.
Our stretch tents are fully waterproof, extremely strong and come with European safety certification for fire, allowing use at both private and public events. With more than 100 individual tents in stock in various colours and sizes equal to 15,000 sqm, we’ve always got you covered.
We work closely with creative producers to come up with really striking structures and ideas. At Intent Productions, we are not afraid to experiment and use the stretch tent canopy in new and innovative ways.
For advanced venues we plan ahead using 3D models of your structure and location. We’ll advise on best practice and how to gain maximum effect from using a stretch tent in any situation.
Full health and safety documentation for our work is supplied both before rigging and after completion.
Founder & Director
Carl founded Intent Productions back in 2006 bringing the stretch tent concept fresh out of his native South Africa to his new home here in London. Over the years Carl has built up long-lasting relationships with our clients and is considered the go-to-guy in the industry for everything to do with stretch tents. Carl is the co-director of both Intent UK and our US office.
Dan joined Intent Productions in 2013, starting on a freelance basis, and is now with us full time as our Managing Director. He has a wealth of experience in both running tent companies and event management. Dan focuses on new business, marketing and our live events clients. Although he spends more time in front of the computer now, he can still be found on site during the summer – and will take any chance to rig our stretch tents abroad that you might throw at him!
With a background in both venue management and marquee hire, Matt brings attention to detail and an analytical approach to his role as Operations Director. He works with our clients’ ideas, producing 3D drawings when needed, and can be found on site throughout the summer. Matt is a keen traveller and loves a good festival. Good job he decided to work with us then!
Director - Intent U.S.A
Tom runs our U.S. operations and is responsible for introducing stretch tents to this new and exciting market. After working with Carl from the very beginning in London, Tom took himself and a container of stretch tents over to sunny Los Angeles, CA. His favourite part of the job is showing clients our work and seeing their reaction as they step into a stretch tent for the first time.
Anna joined Intent Productions back in 2013. She is the glue that holds us all together and keeps us in check. Anna is the point of contact for our clients and deals with the company’s bookings and accounts. Although based in our Wimbledon office most of the time, she can be found enjoying the perks of the job throughout the summer and has her name down for Glastonbury every year!
