our work




Held annually at Houston’s Reliant Center stadium, The Offshore Technology Conference is the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection. Cetco Energy Services wanted a highly visible trade show display for OTC 2013 that encapsulated their new brand and their continued advancement in energy technology. They also wanted a solution that could be moved at a moment’s notice.


Starting with a raw 20’ shipping container, we reduced its original raw weight by 1,000 lbs by utilizing composite materials throughout the structure. To aid in the ease of use and overall security, we developed new latching systems and locking devices which simplified the setup and breakdown of the unit. The most notable features were a second-level deck system that reinforced the integrity of the structure while providing edge-to-edge flooring, and an easy-to-assemble modular wall system for an environmentally-controlled room enclosure at the back of the unit (complete with air conditioning which was important in Houston.)


With a large banner atop the unit that attracted attendees, the Cetco environment offered guests plenty of comfortable seating, a relaxing atmosphere, and a great view of the conference. We’re proud to have worked with Cetco and we are both excited for the next event.
