Tips for a successful roadshow
Roadshow logistics is a specialist area, whether it’s a local or international act. Roadshow equipment ranges from elaborate stage sets to cutting-edge audio-visual equipment. Without all the gear and props, the show can’t go on!
Roadshow logistics don’t automatically fall into place on their own, though. Careful planning needs to take place to make sure everything and everyone reaches the target destination on time and in one piece.
The best tip for organising a successful roadshow is to work with an experienced company like Moving Containers. We know how to choose the best transport option — road or rail — and the best storage options for your precious roadshow freight.
When you work with professionals like Moving Containers, you can be sure your roadshow will go off without a hitch.
Pop up solutions
Popups have been appearing in Australian towns and cities for a while now. These temporary spaces have a lot going for them – they’re mobile, affordable, secure, easy to set up and they’re a hit with customers.
Modified shipping containers have many popup applications, including:
- Retail or food outlets
- Portable display centres
- Mini warehouses
Whatever you’re selling or promoting, Moving Containers can create popup solutions to suit your precise needs. We can give you the container as it is or we can design something special for you. Get in touch with our staff today to discuss your popup ideas.
