3 Ways the G-Tainer Transforms Your Exhibit
April 18, 2019
We have some big news we’re excited to share! To continue our pursuit of innovation in the event industry, we’ve partnered with an outstanding company that will bring our event offerings to a completely new level!
G-SMATT (our new best friends) are the exclusive creator and provider of G-Glass. The industry-changing commercial grade glass is embedded with micro-LED technology to deliver media content. Their glass has won tons of awards like:
Best New Technology Product
Best use of Technology for Engagement & Interaction
International Tech Company 2018
Event Industry Product of the year 2018
In short, the fully transparent LED Glass is the next generation of event technology.
When you combine their unbelievable glass with our shipping container event spaces, you get G-Tainer. Each modular structure employs brightly lit media displays and G-Glass for exhibiting and events. G-Tainers can be leased individually for smaller footprints, side-by-side for a larger space, stacked for large-scale media displays, or combined with modified shipping containers for a visually-striking, custom layout.
In an industry like ours, the next big thing is always just over the horizon. More important than the next big thing? How can use these innovative solutions to make your events better, make your jobs easier, and blow your clients’ expectations out of the water? Here are three ways the G-Tainer does just that:
The glass is 99.7% transparent- quite a feat for a product that will be displaying video, motion graphics, still graphics, photography, games, and interactive experiences. The energy efficient smart glass allows for durability, transparency, full lighting, and interactive media capabilities– all in one product.
Typical products that offer visual projection use:
LED panels (creates division lines between panels and is not see-through)
Linear Set Up (which obstructs the view with rows of lights)
Metallic Fabric (obstructs the view with vertical and horizontal lines)
The problem with these products is that they cannot achieve the projection functionality with transparent glass. This means that when the structure is turned off, the product is ugly. Turn off G-Cube’s programming and the screen returns to its day job, good ol’ glass.
Selfies and Photo Ops
Let’s face it, event producers have a hard enough job. If there was one way to reduce the stress and mistakes that are endemic in the event industry, containers would be the answer.
They Elevate Experiences
In a sea of boring tents, be a shipping container!
Fold down walls, removable doors, retractable awnings, moving displays– The list goes on
They’re Off Your Books Faster
By utilizing Boxman Studios’ product, our clients have the opportunity to receive tax benefits. Based on IRS Publication 946, container structures are categorized as a 7-year tax life property. Specifically, the code states, “Any property that does not have a class life and has not been designated by law as being in any other class.” This means that modular units are not called out in the IRS Publication 946. Therefore, it defaults to a 7-year property, which allows you to depreciate the units over a 7-year tax life. Commercial, traditional stick-built construction in IRS Publication 4562 is classified as nonresidential real property, which has a depreciation period of 39 years.
*Boxman Studios is not providing tax advice and all clients are to confirm tax life with your tax professional and representative.
