Cube Modular to Showcase New Sustainable Event Hotel at The Event Production Show 2022

Cube Modular, part of the Cube International group, will be demonstrating its new Event Hotel and Snoozy Glamping Pods at The Event Production Show 2022.

The Event Hotel is a brand new concept for the 2022 festival season and constructed using the company’s award-winning eco-friendly Continest foldable buildings and wetcell technology. It can accommodate up to 40 people in 20 bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom; a complete eco-friendly accommodation solution. The entire on-event hotel structure, consisting of twenty CN10 units and ten innovative wetcell dual ensuite bathroom units, is transported on just two trucks, leading to a massive reduction in carbon footprint.

Alongside its unique Event Hotel, Cube is now also offering Snoozy Glamping Pods for event rental. These stylish, lockable cube-shaped units offer secure, luxury sleeping accommodation for festival-goers. The aluminium and steel frame and aircell patented structure folds for storage and transport and features raised flooring, lighting and USB power.

The Event Hotel is the latest addition to Cube’s Continest range of foldable buildings, the most environmentally-friendly event solution which provides robust and scalable buildings for box office, dressing room, staff office, retail, catering and other temporary building needs.

“We are now a one stop temporary accommodation provider for festival and event organisers due to our expanding range of unique building solutions”, said Brandon Weston, MD of Cube Modular. “We offer a complete sustainable event infrastructure, including pop up shops, bar and catering units and offices, as well as our new sleeping units, which are in great demand following a successful inaugural season last year.”

Event organisers renting Continest units for their temporary accommodation building needs can make big savings on transport costs, reduce carbon emissions, and achieve their sustainability goals. Through innovative foldable technology, the units are designed to be folded down and stacked for transport and storage. Ten CN20s (10x20ft) or twenty CN10s (20x10ft) can be transported on a single truck, thus enabling a reduction of CO2 emissions by 80% compared to fixed portable building systems.

Cube Modular is the UK and Ireland’s exclusive distributor of Continest and can be visited at Stand TS01 at The Event Production Show on 8-9 March, ExCel London Exhibition Centre.

Cube Wins Prestigious Green Supplier Award at Festival Supplier Awards 2022

Last night, the Cube Modular team celebrated its latest accolade after scooping the Green Supplier Award at the Festival Supplier Awards 2022, an event held at London’s exclusive Hurlingham Club.

The award was presented to the team in recognition of its contribution to providing sustainable portable buildings to the UK Festival market after introducing its eco-friendly Continest foldable buildings to the festival industry in 2021, taking the UK festival season by storm! Despite the unique challenges facing all event organisers and suppliers in the current climate, Cube supplied and installed 204 units across 18 festivals between June and September that year. Event organisers chose Cube for the sustainability credentials of its Continest system, coupled with reduced haulage costs.

“The winner of this category has a really exciting and impactful sustainable product for the event industry. It is great to see innovative products like this coming forward!” – the Festival Supplier Awards 2022 judges.

Our unique portable accommodation solution enables festivals to reduce their CO2 and GHG emissions, through the transportation of our portable buildings to their event, by up to 80%, compared to using traditional fixed framed cabins. 

“It’s extremely gratifying to see the brilliant Continest foldable cabin system recognised for the drastic cuts in carbon emissions that it achieves,” said Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s MD. “I’m really proud to see the team’s efforts rewarded too in what was a very challenging season accommodating changing requirements.”

The largest single installation undertaken in 2021 was at Lost Village, where Cube provided a complete staff and production management infrastructure using 52 of its Continest CN20 units. This comprised three ticket offices and a wide range of site, production, operations and management offices, a radio shack, dressing rooms, security cabins, stores and a press office.

Other festivals using Cube Modular products in 2021 included We Out Here, Reading Festival, Wireless, The Cambridge Club and Strawberries and Creem.

Cube Supports First Pilot Crowd Scheme Event With Hand Sanitiser Stations

Cube Supports First Pilot Crowd Scheme Event With Hand Sanitiser Stations

The first phase of the pilot crowd scheme, to test Government guidance on crowds returning to sport, was held at The Oval Cricket Ground last weekend. It saw 1,000 spectators watch Surrey play Middlesex and was deemed “a definite success” by Surrey chief executive Richard Gould.

Cube was on hand to support the event with its hand sanitiser stations strategically placed at the ground’s entrance points.

The stand-alone and highly branded units help venues and events mitigate the spread of the virus and have been deployed at sports grounds, businesses, hospitals and retail venues throughout the UK.

Further pilot crowd schemes which were planned for other sporting events have since been cancelled due to the recent coronavirus upsurge.

The final day of the Goodwood racing festival, an event for which Cube also provided hand sanitiser stations, and the Snooker World Championships will no longer be able to welcome spectators. Both events will now take place behind closed doors.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the decision at a press briefing, “I have said our plan to reopen society and the economy is conditional… that we would not hesitate to put the brakes on if required. Our assessment is that we should now squeeze that brake pedal.”

The crowd pilot scheme was set up by the UK Government to allow spectators at a small number of sporting events. A move forward to help venues safely reopen their doors to fans.

Guidelines for the scheme included seating arrangements to allow for social distancing, crowd control measures for entering and exiting venues, additional hygiene facilities and screens and barriers at catering units and betting kiosks, where social distancing was not possible.

Elite sport has been closed to spectators in the UK since March 23 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
