One of our four curated virtual events (60 minutes long) for remote teams.

A customized experience that we design for your conference or other event.

How a custom event works

Innovation, meet creativity.

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

Company Histories

Share the history of your company with a custom virtual event. Great for on-boarding new hires, company anniversaries, and big celebrations. We’ll research, design and host an event that tells your unique story.


Live Events for Digital Marketing

Enhance your company’s digital marketing with a custom virtual experience. For example, we designed a “Virtual Chicago Neighborhood Tour” led via 360-degree Google Street View images for a real estate company. They invited the community to attend for free as a “goodwill marketing” event.


Pre-Recorded Digital Content

Liven up a long meeting, conference or professional development seminar with custom-made “brain breaks.” See a video example of our pre-recorded storytelling content from the Choose Chicago Virtual Road Show.


Live Streaming Virtual Tours

Enjoy a live-streamed tour from the streets of downtown Chicago and our diverse neighborhoods! An expert live-streaming videographer facilitates while an event host provides commentary and responds to chat messages in real time.
