Creating unique bar spaces out of a converted shipping container is just one way to attract the crowds and offer up something a little bit different to bring those crowds in. Shipping container bars are also an innovative way of expanding your brand; you can take your bar or club to different events with easy transport and set up.

Tradeshow Event Container

If you’ve ever been to a tradeshow or an industry event, you’ll see that your competition is fierce. They are all trying to capture the imagination and the attention of the public as they walk past. Not to mention, the massive expense that some vendors go to, to create these event kiosks. 

Trade show event shipping containers are a terrific idea, these converted shipping containers can be built in a way that they can adapt and change depending on the event or space that you’re working from. Flexible display options, even utilising the roof of a shipping container are just some of the many options that are available to create a real head turner and attract more customer to your stall.

Have you ever thought of converting a modified shipping container into a commercial shipping container kitchen? If you haven’t, well have a look at the photos below and to see how much commercial equipment we can fit into a shipping container space. Why not even consider splitting the container to have part commercial kitchen and the other half for servery area, turning the container into a one stop takeaway shop. Some of the feedback we’ve had from our chefs working in container kitchens is the fact that everything is it reach, and productivity goes through the roof.
