GTMS the UK’s leading full-service event production company are excited to launch Creative Spaces a new brand that specialises in converting shipping containers into amazing experiential event spaces

As brands look to stand out from the crowd, the demand for creating innovative event spaces is bigger than ever!

Clients are increasingly looking for innovative and creative temporary and semi-permanent structural solutions to host brand experience events, to engage their audiences, to get people talking and stand out from the crowd.

We’ve been using shipping containers to create amazing experiential event spaces for over 10 years

GTMS have been converting shipping containers into amazing spaces for over a decade. We are the leading shipping container crate conversion and fabrication company in the UK and have worked for some of the world’s most famous brands including: Asus, Calvin Klein, Coca Cola & Victoria Secret.

We’ve converted shipping containers into pop-up shops for Not On The High Street and furnished Puma’s retail unit at Box Park. We’ve turned containers into a mobile cinema for Cineworld, touring training facilities for Benefit and festival stages for Red Bull.

Over the last 2 years, we’ve seen a surge in demand from companies looking to use shipping container crates as structural event solutions and have gone from working on sporadic one-off projects to a constant production-line. The time therefore seemed right to launch a dedicated brand to service this growing market – Creative Spaces.

Creative Spaces offer a full-service production and activation from conception to campaign completion

Creative Spaces’ team of designers think outside the box, creating ideas that excite and inspire. Taking the versatile shipping container and transforming them into stunning structures that stop people in their tracks. The Creative Spaces team can quickly hone in on the key elements of your brief, we’ll listen to your requirements and making sure we understand exactly what you need. We then have the vision to design solutions that meet our your objectives, taking into consideration the structural, mechanical, aesthetic and budget requirements of the project.

Once you are happy with the designs, CAD visuals and project proposals we’ll create, the construction stage commences in our state of the art production facility. The build and fabrication team then convert either new or upcycled shipping containers from concept to reality in a matter of weeks, keeping you informed at each stage of the production process.

Depending on the bespoke design the shipping container crates are adapted with entrances, exits, awnings, electrical distribution and lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, stylized, dressed and fitted with all the elements required for the task ahead.
