Cube Launches Sustainable Event Hotel at Event Buyers Live
We’re delighted to have launched our sustainable event hotel at the Event Buyers Live conference in Nottingham recently, which was received with rave reviews!
Our new state-of-the-art and sustainable event hotel, available for 2022 events and festivals, is constructed using Cube’s market-leading and award-winning Continest foldable containers, buildings which can be rapidly deployed to create multi-room accommodation structures.
Showcasing our innovative design at the conference with a two ensuite bedroom structure, the insulated buildings can be jointed and stacked to form a two-storey 20-bedroom hotel, with air conditioning available where required. Full service and furnishing contracts are also available. Our eco-friendly modular hotel is suitable for any large scale event, making it ideal for organisers looking for on-site staff accommodation to reduce their travel and transport costs.
The Event Buyers Live conference, where prospective clients pre-book meetings with suppliers whose products they are interested in, saw a fully booked Cube team showcase its modular portable hotel to many curious parties. In fact, due to demand, the team was unable to fit everyone into the conference timeframe, meaning more showings and demonstrations have been booked in the weeks ahead.
Festival and event organisers who did manage to book an appointment to see the team were particularly interested in discussing their sustainability goals for 2022 and finding out how Cube can help to reduce their travel and transport emissions through the use of its foldable containers. Continest’s innovative foldable container technology means just two trucks can deliver an entire 20-bedroom ensuite pop-up hotel to any location, leading to an 80% saving in carbon fuel emissions compared to fixed framed portable buildings. In addition, an entire event infrastructure consisting of ticket offices, security units, admin offices, merchandise units, bar and catering units as well as accreditations offices, can also be delivered on just two trucks*.
Cube Modular’s charity partner, ecolibrium, also hosted a panel of experts discussing the challenges and looking at strategies for reducing travel carbon emissions at events, focusing on innovation in the supply chain and how stakeholders across the sector can collaborate to create positive change. Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s Managing Director, was part of this thought-provoking panel, alongside Naomi Lawson (project manager, ecolibrium) and other eminent players in the environmental and events industries.
Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s MD, said: “We had a very successful time at Event Buyers Live and received some fantastic feedback on the launch of our new event hotel, which will be available for 2022. This event has been a fantastic networking opportunity for developing both new and existing relationships and we very much look forward to working with them all in what is sure to be an exciting year for the event and festival industry.”
