MILWAUKEE, WIS. – Containers UP will receive a BizTimes I.Q. Award for Innovation from BizTimes Media LLC.

Containers UP creates and rents pop-up container bars and spaces that create a unique mobile environment for celebrating any occasion. In addition to bringing people together for special events, the company’s custom-built containers help local businesses increase foot traffic and sales at tradeshows, fairs, festivals and more.

"We have a passion for creating unique and useful spaces,” explains co-owner Tom Daugherty. “Utilizing reclaimed shipping containers is a way for us to create those spaces and share them with anyone. We can deliver an experience that draws people to you and your brand.

“As entrepreneurs in Milwaukee, we feel strongly about the ways we can help other local companies gain traction and a following through events they already participate in.”

The I.Q. Awards salute southeastern Wisconsin businesses for their innovative products, services or processes. The winners will receive their awards at a lunch ceremony on Thursday, May 31, at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, Woodland Dreams Ballroom, in Milwaukee at 1721 W. Canal St., from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
