Virtual Events

learn and have fun

We work with conferences, corporate groups, and universities to uplift meetings and inspire connections.

Our private virtual events are curated to bring your team to explore and learn together. Your virtual event guests will hear the stories across time of people, places and ideas with national influence. Optionally swag gifts thematically enhance the virtual experience. 

Virtual events include interactive elements, like games or creative challenges. Breakout rooms, polling, and chat communications may also be used to enhance your team-building experience.

And absolutely, our events appeal to both Chicago locals and those who have never even been to the Midwest. We work with groups from 5-500 guests. And you can try out one of our public events if you are curious!

Our virtual experiences will build trust among your team members and encourage innovative thinking.
