ASD Healthcare wanted to have a fun-filled day for employees to cut loose and build team spirit, and we achieved this by creating a fun field day for them on a beautiful fall day. The participants arrived in special field day t-shirts and were checked in by our staff where they got a chance to enter a drawing for raffle prizes as well as receive their scorecard to register their scores at each activity station. Stations included a Football Obstacle Course with even inflatable Dallas Cowboys for the participants to tackle; a Football Tire Toss where they could earn points by throwing footballs through suspended tires; a Horseshoe Golf Station where they could earn points by putting into horseshoes; a Basketball Shooting Station to see how many baskets they could score in 1 minute; an Apple Stacking Station where they went head-to-head with another participant to see who could stack the most apples in 1 minute; a Wacky Relay where teams ran relay races with silly props; and a Hula Hoop Tic-Tac-Toe station where they tried to score points by throwing hula hoops over other participants in chairs! The participants had a blast with all of these activities as well as the “Dunk the Boss” tank that we had set up near the entrance. Hot dogs, hamburgers, snacks, and drinks were served, and medals were awarded at the end to the participants with the most points via our emcee who facilitated the entire event. It was a great event and one that left all of the participants smiling and excited to work for ASD!
AT&T’s Summer U-Verse Road Trip – Dallas
For the Dallas leg of their Summer U-Verse Road Trip Series, AT&T and their producers Digital Kitchen contracted Significant Events to create an outdoor event for 1,500 AT&T employees. Tents were set up for U-Verse networks – HBO, Starz, Fox, TNT, HDNet, and – and employees could visit the booths and get take-aways, snacks, or a photo opportunity with NASCAR’s Kyle Petty or iconic Dan Rather! These photos and many more were taken in front of the Step and Repeat which we had created with the event logo. Guests could also visit the huge Game of Thrones prop throne for a photo opportunity. Balloon bunches in AT&T colors as well as a 72′ long orange “red” carpet were installed in order to drive home the brand. Ice cream was served by the Significant Events’ staff from a branded ice cream truck as well. Since U-Verse is a cable television product, it was imperative that a crystal clear, high definition television sizzle reel could be projected. No small task! We accomplished it using a custom L.E.D. Wall and additional power brought into the space. Audio dispersement was important as well for not only the television reel but also the raffle items. Guests had a great time taking a break from their desks to come and celebrate U-Verse in the plaza below!
