Sponsoring, Exhibiting or Speaking at IFB 2014 events

Join The Blue Box Trail

Throughout the duration of the IFB 2014, a Blue Box Trail will appear around the city, unveiling different aspects of industry, appealing to both trade and consumer audiences.  The Blue Boxes will be positioned in key locations, and close to all Festival events.

The 20ft Blue Box containers are an iconic part of Liverpool’s shipping history, reflecting the import and export industry along the Mersey.  They also act as an empty shell to promote your business and brand from. Whether it’s a retail opportunity, a service provider or an opportunity to market your business, the Blue Boxes are available to purchase from one week to the full duration of the Festival.  The containers will be branded and can be adapted to each individual requirement.  They can be interactive, functional, profitable and creative.

They are versatile and can be adapted to suit your brand and your business.
