By Alex Borkowski | March 17, 2020 | Posted in Event Spotlights, Event Tips, News

Although staying indoors isn’t conducive to live events, there are virtual event alternatives that still promote team building and camaraderie from a distance. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite virtual events below to help you get inspired. Ready to start planning? Check out our favorite virtual options

Book a remote event to stave off the hectic nature of working from home during this quarantine!Wildly Different – home office game show, “The Pitch” and video ice breakers

Wildly Different specializes in events that are off the beaten path and guaranteed to show your guests a great time, even over video messaging. Their remote, home office game challenges your guests to compete for bragging rights, right from their devices. Everything from true/false questions to picture identification await you in this exciting competitive free-for-all.

“The Pitch” is an online gameshow styled after Shark Tank on ABC. Teams of up to four come up with a fictionalized pitch for a brand new product that will completely revolutionize their industry. Once they’ve got their product, they’ll film an ad campaign, create a logo and much more. The meeting leader will show everyone’s pitch, and everyone involved votes to determine the winner. It’s a great way to stave off the stir-crazies while keeping focus on your sales pitch.

In Wildly Different’s final offering, your group will break the ice with a series of expertly-designed ice breakers. Your participants will compete in challenges like describing their ideal vacation spot, taking a photo of their surroundings and more to help their coworkers get to know them. After everyone has submitted their answers, they’ll be compiled into a sizzle reel. Learn something new about your coworkers with this creative video event.
