The Value of Virtual Programming

The Value of Virtual Programming

Virtual programming has taken the lead in college entertainment formats these past several months. We know this wasn’t necessarily by choice, however, we’re also finding many unexpected benefits.  Attendance at many of our virtual events has been comparable to, if not exceeded in-person participation numbers.  In addition, virtual programming can be offered at a much lower cost thanks to the fact that acts do not need to cover travel costs and lodging amongst other expenses associated with live performances (Event snacks, cleaning and setup fees for campus rooms, staffing or student worker cost, etc).  Which means your budget is being stretched further and your cost per person is more valuable. We have entertained over 35,000 students since March and given away over $175,000 in prizes.  That is a lot of happy and engaged students!  We can’t change the course of what has happened in 2020, but we know we can give your students a 60-75 minute vacation from the real world.

In addtion to providing a positive experience for your students, the added and unmeasurable value is the time saved for you and your staff. No setup, no clean up, not to mention for many of the turn key events we offer you don’t even need to be present to oversee the event.  One of the greatest comments we receive from our customers is that they tune in for a few minutes or sometimes not at all because they know they are covered.  

Our game show creators have worked tirelessly to make sure that the delivery of each show is professional – with one way camera sharing, and live chats that still keep the event interactive all while preventing any video bombers from taking away from the experience.   We also take pride in the large variety (Currently 17 themes) of game show themes, all of which can even be customized for your campus.  Keep an eye out for additional themes that will be added for the spring (See below).  And, have we mentioned the quality entertainers that host each one!?  All of which have had a pristine track record of being funny, engaging, and wildly entertaining.  In addition, your game show hosts have performed at colleges around the country and many have showcased at college conferences.  You can find out more about each host on our Meet the Hosts page here.  

We know there are many options and prices for game shows on the market (Some prices so low it’s hard to comprehend), but we feel one of the most important factors when you book a game show with us is that you get a high-quality event with great hosts.  Every one of your students will be engaged for the entire event and they all will have a chance to win!  We offer all the bells and whistles for a great value that your students will request (many already have) to return may times through the semester.  

Here’s a partial list of new themes to keep an eye out upcoming spring semester:

Name That Price
Cupid Shuffle
Be Mind Bingo
