Electronics company Crestron may have started off in a room above a deli, but you would never know that today. This month the company celebrates 50 years of innovation, 5k employees and more than 90 offices across the globe.
For a milestone as large as this, a simple celebration would not suffice. From carnival booths to a giant mini golf course and beyond, keep reading to see how we collaborated with meetings company McVeigh Global to bring Crestron’s Innovation Fuels Us event to life.
Crestron team members putted their way to victory with our nine-hole Giant Mini Golf Course, featuring a variety of obstacles that kept players on their toes!
Crestron team members experienced Space Invaders like never before with our giant, LED version. Complete with two battle seats, players took off on an intergalactic mission to destroy the invading enemy spaceships as they descended down the screen. Game modes included a solo-mission or head-to-head competition.
Adrenaline Rush Obstacle Course
What is a team event without a little friendly competition? In the ultimate test of skill, Creston team members raced for gold medals as they jumped, ducked and rolled their way through an exhilarating obstacle course.
Giant Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots
Remember this Mattel classic? Employees felt a wave of nostalgia and exhilaration as they stepped up to the ring, strapped themselves in and threw some punches with our four-foot-tall boxing robots! Players scored by knocking up the head of their opponent’s robot.
Cue the nostalgia with roll-a-ball, a four-player game straight out of your childhood arcade. Creston team members rolled balls along their lane into a pyramid of holes. Each time a player’s ball was scored, the corresponding horse moved closer toward the finish line.
Creston brought the spirit of a carnival to its event with our classic pinstripe booths. From Krazy Kans to Tip-a-Troll, event guests enjoyed a variety of deluxe gaming options.
I wanted to reach out and let you know that Alvin and his team did an exceptional job on Wednesday. They were on time (a few even early) and everything looked amazing. Alvin was a pleasure to work with. It’s clear that the team are great at what they do, have strong comradery, and get the job done correctly and on time. You may have heard we had a few other vendors on site fulfilling the same types of services and your team was the clear standout. That only makes it easier for me to push for your services in the future. I will definitely reach out the next time I have a client interested in any of the types of games and services you offer.
I hope to work with you, Alvin and the rest of the IEG team again soon.
