Pod Tech at the NEC 2016

Farm Business Innovation Show 2016

On 9th and 10th November 2016 Pod Tech exhibited at the Farm Business Innovation show at the NEC arena in Birmingham, in partnership with Container and Cabin Services Ltd (CCS).

With an uncertain future being faced by our rural farming communities, the Show's purpose is to provide alternative revenue ideas for both farmers and land owners. looking at other ways to diversify.

Pod Tech's first 'Glamping Pod'
We showcased our very first 'Glamping Pod' having recognised the growing market trend in glamping.

For the uninitiated, glamping is a more glamorous form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.

Glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature, without foregoing any of life's luxuries. Our very own Glamping Pod provides all the amenities of a luxurious hotel room - the only difference being its location. Strategically placed in a rural setting, you can still sample nature's delights in ultra comfort - the perfect solution when life gets a little too hectic.

Great feedback

To say the Show was a success would be an understatement. We spent almost every second in conversation with a host of people from many walks of life - all with their own ideas on how they might utilise such a unit on their land. Some were interested in setting up their own glamping site whilst others already had one in place and were interested in providing the next step up in luxury (interestingly, as a result of demand from their existing clientele).

Others spoke of providing staff accommodation for seasonal workers as well as utilising semi-permanent structures like ours by farmers already offering their land for touring caravans. Everyone could see the benefits of these units and we met some very interesting characters.

With great feedback and interest, we're now exploring the ideas that were presented to us and look forward to continuing those discussions with the people we met.
As a bespoke design and steel container fabrication company, Pod Tech is able to build to any design brief, in any size, shape or colour of your choice. Our Glamping Pod showcased the kind of units we are able to provide, the workmanship and the eye to detail that goes into every container we build. The reception we received was very positive.

Being at the Show in partnership with CCS (who were responsible for the internal finish of our pod) we were extremely satisfied with the work the guys did. Many delegates commented on just how luxurious our pod was - inside and out.
We are looking forward to more shows in the future and you might just see us back at the NEC in 2017.
