The recent Women in Construction Awards ceremony at Lancashire County Cricket Club benefited from one of the promoted competitions that was carried out during the evening.
Whether it be a corporate event, live performance, educational conference or an awards ceremony, competitions are a great way of encouraging interaction and the engagement of your audience throughout the event.
The competitions can be created as a fully bespoke design to cater for your every requirement.
Adding fun and exciting games helps to create lasting memories between your guests and make your event truly stand out!
The Women in Construction Awards ceremony at Lancashire County Cricket Club, based at Old Trafford, decided to implement a selfie competition into their evening.
A selfie stick was placed on each the table and the attendants were encouraged to take a group photo on their smart phones, subsequently publishing the image on social media accompanied with the hashtag for the event - #wicawards2015
Simply by adding a slight element of competition, the tables battled with each other to take creative photos in numerous poses, before posting them on Twitter and ultimately onto the two large screens at the ceremony.
Encouraging interaction between guests boosts the overall engagement levels, providing further content for the social media digital signage to keep them looking fresh and constantly full of new images & comments!
The popularity of selfie sticks has firmly placed the item in the public domain, naturally amounting negative press attention as well as plenty of plaudits.
The music festivals Coachella and Lolapalooza have officially banned the use of selfie sticks from the concert grounds.
Another world famous landmark that has decided to list the selfie stick as an item of contraband is Walt Disney World.
Although the use of a selfie stick is not prohibited within the grounds and during parades, guests will not be permitted to use the item whilst riding on an attraction, due to health and safety reasons.
Selfie sticks are a great tool to use at an event or awards ceremony, as they promote healthy competition and also provide the guests with the ability to take brilliant photos!
