Why Elevate?

Why Elevate?

The main goal of this event was simple: to have fun. Our client was passionate about wanting to celebrate his team and create an exciting experience full of moments of engagement and celebration – and we couldn’t wait to dive in.

To bring this event to life, we provided a sound system set-up, event hosts, game supplies, staging, and a high-energy team.

Our team consisted of:

  • 1 Project Lead
  • 2 Event Hosts
  • 4 Event Assistants
    • Event Assistant roles included media, DJ, event set-up and break-down, crowd engagement, and game facilitation

Prior to the event, the Elevate Project Lead worked alongside Home Depot to:

  • Develop a detailed event agenda and run-of-show
  • Plan and develop exciting team-building activities and competitions, including:
    • Caterpillar Race
    • Human Hamster Wheel
    • Zorb Ball Races
    • Dizzy Bat Races
    • Rock/Paper/Scissors Biggest Fan
    • Lip Sync Battle
  • Schedule site visits to discuss venue logistics, spacing, and equipment
  • Create alternative plans in-case of weather

On event day, Elevate was responsible for behind-the-scenes logistics, including:

  • Loading in and setting up all sound equipment
  • Setting up audio and prepping playlists
  • Stage management and handling the agenda and timing of the event

Throughout the event, our team created an engaging, energetic environment by:

  • Welcoming guests upon arrival
  • Guiding and directing guests throughout the event
  • Organizing all team-building activities and coordinating games
  • Being a point of contact for our client with updates, changes, and tasks
  • Hosting the field day and facilitating a high-energy event for the employees
  • Emceeing announcements and facilitating guest movement
  • Creating unique playlists

    Leaving guests feeling refreshed, united, and inspired

    From start to end, this event proved to be exciting, engaging, and memorable for the Home Depot team. Over 150 employees enjoyed laughing with their teams during the lip sync battle, falling during dizzy bat races, and cheering each other on. All of these celebrations were clear contributions to the strengthening of their organizational culture, and we were honored to play a part in forming those memorable moments.
