1. Hybrid Escape Rooms

Escape rooms are all the rage these days. They’re fun and a little nerve-racking, with timed puzzles to figure out and prizes in the balance. Your office party can bring all the excitement of the escape room experience with a little hybrid technology enhancement that leverages online experiences and virtual reality to make it incredibly dynamic for participants. And escape rooms are perfect for team-building among employees and guests. 

2. Augmented Reality Engagements

Really elevate your office party experience with augmented reality activities and engagements as part of your event entertainment. Augmented reality scavenger hunts, treasure hunts, or AR goggles can create engaging layers of fun. Massive brands, including Amazon, Target, and IKEA, use augmented reality to help customers. Games like Pokemon Go use augmented reality for fun. And even social apps like Snapchat use augmented reality for more engaging and interactive social media experiences. Use the coolest AR to boost engagement at your next office party!

3. Virtual Reality Experiences

Augmented reality is based on real-world settings and experiences. But virtual reality can transport participants to entirely new worlds, environments, and experiences. Bring the VR headsets to your next office party and stage fun games and competitions. Use this event technology to provide unique event experiences and dial up the excitement at your company outing.

4. Wearable Event Technology

Bring the wearables to your next office party! Today’s wearable event technology is great for all kinds of corporate events. Think of smart badges so team members who may not work together can meet fellow employees. RFID wristbands are great for quick and effortless guest registration, especially if your corporate event has a hefty invite list.

5. Event Technology and Digital Trivia

Consider creating an event app for your office party or corporate event and use it to engage all your employees and guests before, during, and after the event.

It’s another tech-based layer of activity, especially fun with prizes, guaranteed to boost attendee engagement.

6. Interactive Video Booths
