Case Study #1: Family Feud Game Show

Welcome to the first installment in a series we’re calling ‘Case Studies:’  real, diverse stories from unique events we’ve provided entertainment for.  Our goal is to help you solve your entertainment challenges by providing fun, unique solutions to meet your specific objectives.

This week’s Case Study showcases a common challenge among planners and event managers: Increasing attendance while increasing engagement.

Objective

An non-profit association needed a way to encourage networking, team building and fun at the first reception of their annual convention.  This particular reception had a history of underwhelming attendance, so turning around attendance for future years was a huge concern.

Solution

We provided a massively successful Family Feud game show complete with interactive questions and sound effects. The whole gang participated in 3 rounds of questions, a lightning round, and ended the evening on a high note (literally!) with our version of Name that Tune.  

Most game shows focus on the few participants on stage leaving the audience to be… well, the audience! Instead, we reconfigured Family Feud  so that you can have 30-60 participants instead of 5-10. And by ending with Name That Tune, we unify the whole group and make them all participants. Imagine your smiles as you watch the whole room singing along to Name That Tune selections! Now that’s ENGAGEMENT!

We have already started discussing next year and how to build on this year’s success by layering in some of our other services (like our emcee/host) to add value to other components of the conference.
