To accommodate 8,500 employees and their families for a 2nd annual appreciation day we erected over 110,000 sq. ft. of tenting to insure the event would take place rain or shine. The event needed to be in a private environment centrally located for employee attendance from a three state region, and with ample parking. To create an exciting family environment we provided a variety of interactive games and activities each one to be healthy and challenging. For their 25th Anniversary we designed custom graphics for decorations and produced an interactive entertainment variety show. The menu was designed for healthy choices, with on-site grilling, and “make your own” custom smoothies. Each employee felt as if they were the center of the event by participating in interactive activities such as face painting, caricaturists; make your own party hats, roving entertainment, and game challenges. Each employee truly felt appreciated, recognized, and rewarded for their hard work and contribution to the company.
