CONTAINER CONVERSIONS 2 x 20ft pop event units CS50356
This fun conversion for Jet2 Holidays, fitted out as their "party plane", has just been on tour of major UK cities, as part their promotional campaign. The public are invited to step inside, have fun with a range of party themed activities, including a silent disco, and maybe book a holiday afterwards!
Shipping containers are well suited for touring or temporary events and festivals, due to their highly portable nature. Often referred to as "pop up" they can be easily transported from one location to pop-up in another in quick time and with minimal fuss, whether it's for an exhibition, stage area, catering or even a fashion show!
The "Party Plane" started out as a relatively simple conversion, with a wide, full length roller shutters to open the container up for the public to see inside and enter. The two units were adapted to enable them to be interconnected on location, by the simple means of roller shutters on the end, giving 40ft of space, but with the convenience of being able to transport them as 2 x 20ft pieces.
