This past weekend, we hosted our first official virtual event! In partnership with Groove Labs here in Austin, we put together a multi-room open house online full of unique and engaging entertainers for our guests to log onto and explore! Along with the activities at the virtual open house, we sent out packages of treats and other SWAG beforehand to help bring this remote event to life! Here we’ll cover all of the elements of this virtual open house execution!
Those who had signed up to attend and receive an event package were given a code to enter in Zoom to access the “meeting” of this event. Once attendees logged on, they were met with great performances by DJ ENS and Sidney Scott, who each provided their own kind of live background music to set the mood! Attendees were able to see and hear these performers, while still being able to see and hear everyone else on the call. Other than this first landing room, attendees had access to three different breakout rooms to go back and forth between. We were so excited to feature vinyl spin artists, a digital caricaturist, and a palm and tarot reader!
In the vinyl spin art room, guests chose a record to use for their spin art, and a few colors to use. Along with being able to see all other guests who were in this breakout room, there were cameras capturing both the spin artists and the record while it was being spun and painted! The inclusion of multiple angles on something like this can help your guests feel like they’re really there and know what everything looks like! Another great part of this activity was that our attendees will actually receive their record that they chose and designed.
Our attendees also had the opportunity to be drawn by caricature artist Erica Missey! Erica drew participants in her room, one at a time, and then sent the digital artwork to the subject right then and there via email!
The third breakout room available allowed guests to participate in a group tarot reading with Doc Ravencraft. Participants had a dual view similar to the vinyl spin art room and were able to see Doc and his table of cards.
Another fun element of this event was the front yard installation done by ATX Bubbles and Alpha Lit Letters. This collab is the perfect example of a lawn decor that can help bring the excitement to a remote event and let everyone driving by know that you’re celebrating!
We loved hosting this event with Groove Labs and are so appreciative of all of our amazing Austin sponsors. We’re ready to assist you in your distanced and/or remote event needs! Contact us here or get in touch on Instagram!
