How a custom event works

innovation, meet creativity.

With our virtual events you can either: 

  1. Choose a curated virtual event (30 or 60 minutes long) for remote teams.
  2. Go custom for a conference or other event. We can supply a few short “brain breaks”, or we can design an event special to your group! 

We can build an event from the ground up to highlight a timely story, the history of your business, or the evolution of a building special to your group. 

Or we can enliven your virtual conference with brief “brain breaks.” 

To customize a live virtual event to your needs, we may:

  • Learn more about your meeting objectives.
  • Create live or recorded content to fit a desired duration.
  • Write an interesting narrative and present fascinating visuals
  • Help you select from our menu of virtual games, creative challenges, and other interactive elements
A virtual event that explores the history of your company can be special for internal use, such as on-boarding new hires, celebrating company anniversaries, and unwinding after meetings. 

We also create custom virtual events to enhance companies’ digital marketing strategies. We designed, for example, a “Virtual Chicago Neighborhood Tour” for a real estate company who invited the community as a “goodwill marketing” event. See an example here from the Choose Chicago Virtual Road Show.
