Last winter we were approached by Cetco Energy Services about creating a mobile trade show display out of a shipping container. The idea was for them to activate the display at various conferences across America. The end result was something pretty special.
Starting with a 20’ decommissioned shipping container as the base foundation, we created a stunning environment that made its debut at the Offshore Technology Conference, May 6-9 in Houston. The custom build included some brand new features that we rolled out exclusively for Cetco:
- New 2nd level decking system that is incorporated into the structure. Previously, when we’d create 2nd level decks, we used an external piece that attached to the roof of the container. This time the decking was part of the structure. This technique further reinforces the structure, utilizes edge-to-edge real estate of the container, and provides a seamless appearance to the aesthetics.
- Composite materials were used throughout the container, for both structural purposes, and interior finishes. This lightened the container by 1000 lbs, reducing logistical costs.
- New latching systems and locking devices throughout the container improved ease of use while also increasing the unit’s security.
- A modular, plug-and-play wall system. Our new wall system can be set up in minutes and stowed away easily. The result is a cool new room enclosure that can be environmentally controlled.
We are delighted to partner with Cetco and look forward to a long relationship.

When we bought our first shipping container back in 2008, we had a hunch that the idea of using intermodal containers for purposes other than their original intent was going to be big.Read More »
