Back in May, Ameritex Movers had the honor of winning first place for single booth display at the Houston Apartment Association Education Conference and Expo. This annual event is the largest local apartment association expo in the country.

Our award-winning entry was an 8-foot-tall cardboard skyline of Downtown Houston. Constructing such a piece was no small feat — in fact, it took over 125 hours and 700 sticks of hot glue.

The finished project features well-known staples of Downtown Houston. We made sure to include the George R. Brown Convention Center, Discovery Green, and a display of our city’s skyscrapers.

Ameritex Box City Lands at the Children’s Museum

We wanted to share the model for the Houston community to see and enjoy. So, Ameritex is now honored to collaborate with the Children’s Museum of Houston to bring our creation to the museum’s visitors.

The Children’s Museum’s public relations and promotions director Henry Yau shares our sentiment. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share with Houston’s children the passion and creativity and ‘outside of the box’ thinking currently taking place in organizations like Ameritex.” He said, “We hope that by displaying Ameritex’s majestic cardboard masterpiece in our Invention Convention exhibit, it will inspire our young visitors to expand beyond the limits of their imaginations and further the impact of the DIY and Maker Movement.”

We are thrilled about this collaboration. The Children’s Museum of Houston is an awesome institution. In fact, Parents Magazine named the Children’s Museum as the No. 1 children’s museum in the country. Serving over 1 million children and their families all over Houston, the Museum seeks to enhance children’s learning abilities through innovative exhibits.

“Having our Cardboard City displayed at the Children’s Museum of Houston just proves that if you put your mind to something and do it out of love, passion, commitment and a little determination, it will lead you to where you least expect it,” said Ameritex owner Beth Rohani.

Be sure to bring the family out to see our cardboard cityscape by Sept. 9. It is located just outside the Invention Convention Gallery, an exhibit that features maker and engineering concepts.
