Container Case Study of the Month

Check out the Party Plane! This conversion may look like a couple of simple red containers fitted with roller shutters, but they are currently on a big city tour of the UK, promoting Jet2 Holidays. Fitted out by the client to create a party atmosphere, the public are invited to step inside and have fun with a range of party themed activities, including a makeover, silent disco, and refreshments.
If you can't pay a visit to the Party Plane yourself, you can find out more about this clever creation on our case study page.
