Getting a Michelin Star is the top goal for many restauranteurs. Only the best receive them and this year, the Michelin Guide inspectors visited Florida. The Michelin Star event was hosted at the Ritz Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes where the inspectors announced which restaurants in Orlando, Miami, and Tampa had earned the coveted Michelin star.

iRentEverything was proud to have provided the tents and other supplies for this exclusive event.

What Is a Michelin Star?

A Michelin Star is a coveted award issued by the Michelin Guides of the Michelin tire company. The company has been publishing these guidebooks since 1900 as a way to encourage people to travel in order to visit the restaurants listed in the guides. A restaurant can earn up to three Michelin stars and gaining or losing a star can significantly impact that restaurant’s success.

Why Were Michelin Inspectors in Florida?

Michelin inspectors were invited by Visit Orlando and other Florida-based tourism bureaus. The International Director of the Michelin Guides, Gwendal Poullennec, expressed excitement to share Florida’s culinary scene with the world and introduce patrons to new restaurants, chefs, and experiences.

iRentEverything’s Event Tents

The Michelin Star event was held outdoors at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando, Florida. iRentEverything provided a large event tent with sidewalls, which ensured that the weather and temperatures couldn’t impact the event in any way. We are proud to have been a part of this event that helped to showcase some of what makes Florida great.

An event tent is a must for any outdoor event so that you’ll know that it can go off without a hitch, even if the weather turns out to be unpredictably bad. The sidewalls are also essential to protect both hosts and attendees from the hot and humid Florida summer weather.
