A Summer party like no other

Challenge

To provide a Summer party with a difference. Usually Ikano celebrate with their staff at a typical hotel venue and they wanted to surprise the teams with something exciting whilst keeping the budget the same.

Our idea

To have a couple of days of site visits at a variety of venues within Nottingham. The venues included city centre bars, a converted church, restaurants, hotels and riverside bars. We wanted to show a range of options to envisage how the event could be so different simply down to the location!

We went for a riverside bar completely different to the norm, its usually a sit-down meal on round tables. We wanted to spice things up – to have an informal buffet to have that party/ laid back feel. We organised a DJ, incorporated a Hawaiian theme, had a magician, a caricature, their company mascot, a pick ‘n’ mix station, a chocolate fountain and an outside balcony drinks area. It certainly all worked! The summer party was in full flow and miles away from the previous sit-down corporate feeling meal.

The great thing about this – the party fit perfectly within their Swedish values – to dare to be different. We gave them different and they loved it, the Hawaiian theme also worked with the team being so friendly and fun.

Celebrate That Moment.

Fulling linking that Swedish culture of work hard-play hard in order to celebrate their summer party!
