Why you need a portable shower trailer for your event

30 August 2022

Event organisers co-ordinating multi-day events such as music festivals and glamping weekends, are turning more and more to portable shower trailer rental. This guide looks at the benefits of portable showers for your next event.

The list of occasions when portable shower trailer rental is suitable is long, and includes multi-day events often held in locations that do not have access to permanent running water (think summer music festivals) and new build construction sites to name but two. However, there are very few events that would not benefit (see our article 5 occasions to hire a portable shower unit) and here, we look at the advantages to event organisers of portable shower rental.

Portable shower trailers attract larger visitor numbers

When events last for several days, visitors are more likely to stay for the duration if they have access to shower facilities. Without such facilities, organisers will see attendance numbers fall as people leave to return home to shower.

Portable shower trailers improve guest hygiene

Large numbers of people in smaller event spaces, where excitement and energy levels are running high, will create an increase in perspiration and therefore body odour. If any attendee struggles with these issues, their overall enjoyment will be lessened, leading them to having a bad experience. Access to a portable shower will enable them to participate fully and they will leave with a great sense of enjoyment.

Portable shower trailers can protect against heat damage

Summer events in locations with little shade often see guests exposed to extreme temperatures, which can increase the potential for heat exhaustion or even sun stroke. The presence of portable shower trailers gives attendees the opportunity to cool down, reducing potential health risks.  

Portable shower trailers encourage greater participation

Where sports fixtures are held over a weekend, or several days, participants will be motivated to take part in more events if they are able stay clean and fresh between each one; the presence of shower facilities encourages greater participation as competitors know they will be able to wash themselves down.

Portable shower trailers contribute to a healthy environment

When everyone at an event is able to maintain their individual cleanliness throughout, the spread of illness amongst attendees is greatly reduced. Showering means guests are less likely to transmit bacteria and viruses, with contact transmission being kept under control too.
