Changing VIP Hospitality Forever
November 11, 2013
The PlayMaker’s Club made its debut at the Florida-Georgia game, and the response has been remarkable. Not that we’re surprised, when you build the world’s first three-story VIP hospitality structure from modified shipping containers for the world’s largest outdoor cocktail party, you’re bound to turn some heads. On November 2, 2013, nearly 300 Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs fans attended the PlayMaker’s Club enjoying fine food, watching game-day coverage on the 20′ Jumbotron, listening to live music, and meeting celebrities.
Guests fawned over the event, and onlookers marveled at the towering structure. Our CEO David Campbell put it best, “With the help of IMG College and Arena Americas, we’ve changed hospitality forever.” No other sporting event, college or professional has pulled off a temporary structure of this magnitude. The PlayMaker’s Club spans over 4,500 square feet, is constructed from nine modified shipping containers, is climate controlled, and includes all the amenities you could ask for on game-day, food, drinks, games, music and more.
“The most impressive aspect of the structure is what guests don’t see. We’ve worked very hard here at Boxman Studios to ensure the highest level of quality and safety for the build of the PlayMaker’s Club,” says our VP of Manufacturing, Troy Selberg. “We worked with structural engineers, architects, third-party inspectors, fire marshals, and local government officials to create a structure that met and exceeded building codes. As it stands, the PlayMaker’s Club can withstand earthquakes, snow loads, and hurricane winds.”
The fun’s not over yet, the Club still has two more events in January 2014 in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl and the BCS Championship Game.
