For groups who haven’t had the chance to bond in quite some time, why not meet at a science museum to mix things up? The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science offers groups ample meeting space, scientific catering options and educational exhibitions for groups to explore in-between sessions.

Hot Off the Presses

EventsAIR is excited to announce that it has hosted one million virtual attendees from around the globe using its award-winning virtual and hybrid event solution OnAIR. 12 months after its initial launch, the exceptionally powerful OnAIR platform has hosted over one million virtual attendees at over 20,000 events, as well as handled more than 4.4 million registrations, and delivered over 12,000 livestreaming hours via its fully integrated ultra-low latency live streaming solution AIRCast.  The achievement of this milestone in just 12 months after the platform first launched in May 2020 is testament to the company’s ability to anticipate and rapidly respond to the ever-changing events industry needs.  

When it comes to training employees and interns virtually or in-person, companies look for fun ways to engage and teach.  It’s often the difference between employees staying or leaving, moving up or remaining in the same position. No one knows this formula for success better, utilizing custom events, customs games and creativity, than Orlando-based team building and custom event company, Wildly Different. According to Wildly Different Chief Experience Officer Lisa Jennings, the team often weaves company content into a custom game show where you must answer trivia questions and complete challenges that related to training information and the company brand.  Similarly, custom escape rooms and custom treasure hunts have participants learning training points and investigating product attributes in order to solve clues. The custom game and custom event process begins with the Wildly Different award-winning team brainstorming with clients to define their objectives and asking for training information in a raw format before creating content, getting approval and going into production. 

Balich Worldwide Shows has been an international live entertainment group that created, designed and produced the most important and famous ceremonies, live experiences and events all over the world.  On the threshold of a new era for the live entertainment industry, the group presents its new company structure and name: Balich Wonder Studio. Specializing in brand experiences and immersive shows as well, the group worked for top name high end companies in the luxury sectors, both in Italy and abroad, and created immersive experiences in which the greatest technologies were always combined with the finest creativity. Strengthening its corporate structure, the new brand embodies Balich Worldwide Shows' heritage, but it also includes the group's aspirations to achieve a higher level of innovation and wonder, through the constant research and exploration of new territories and possibilities.
