We Played At Eventeract!

This Spring we were honored to be a major sponsor for the Eventeract conference in it’s inaugural year. Produced by the Georgia Chapter Meeting Planners Association (GaMPI), the conference was geared towards engaging the meeting and special events planner. The partnership was win-win; it gave Amusement Masters the opportunity to showcase to an audience of planners and it gave attendees two days of play that enhanced the learning experience.

On both conference days Amusement Masters maintained a booth on the expo floor. This gave us an ideal space for meeting with attendees and giving them a small taste of our game and amusement inventory. Our booth was Western inspired and featured the Wild West Quick Draw, our Western Shootout arcade game and our newest game, “Hit The Hero.” The decor was straight from the Wild West with western fencing and barrel decor items. We even brought in comfortable leather seating for guests looking to kick back and take a load-off as they made their way through the expo.

On the first evening of the conference we placed games throughout the conference’s signature fundraiser “The Gathering.” The event theme was “Back to the 80’s.” We loved this theme because it opened the door to bring in a variety of 1980’s Arcade Games and Pinball Machines, our Classic Strip Photo Booth and our new 2014 Instagram Interactive Booth. All in all, Amusement Masters helped keep the 80’s vibe alive that night.

Spring Fiesta At Amusement Masters

At Amusement Masters we always have a reason to party and PLAY! But last Thursday we had an extra special reason…our annual open house! And for this year’s theme we decided to continue the celebration of Cinco de Mayo with our own “Spring Fiesta”!

Clients, our favorite vendors, friends and family that attended were showered with games, prizes, food and fun. For guests visiting the Amusement Masters warehouse for the first time the visit afforded them a chance to take an expanded look at the range of entertainment and amusements we offer for special events. Inventory we highlighted during the event included our Zippin Zone Zip Line (200 feet long), Hit the Hero lounge, Mind Winder, Fruit Ninja, Buck Hunter 3-D, Black light billiards, air hockey and foosball, our newest Instagram booth, a carnival trailer and our Golden Tee Unplugged.

Keeping the party energized was music by DJ Flu. And throughout the warehouse and backlot we had beautiful decor provided by Eventscapes, CCP Events, Inc., The Mants Estate & Added Pizzazz and Plant Peddler. The backlot guest seating tent and tables were provided by Classic Tents & Events and chairs by Peachtree Tents & Events. The really fun spandex table linens were provided by Spandex Rentals. And in keeping with our Cinco de Mayo theme, a delicious spread at Mexican “small bites” stations was served by Simply Catering. Complimentary to their catering menu was Sangria and Margaritas served by Cool Daddy’s Frozen Drink & Entertainment. And to top it all off was an additional treat for guests…a Dippin’ Dots ice cream station. If you haven’t heard, we now offer Dippin’ Dots with our carnival and festival event services!
