Welcome back to the Hot Mic Blog from Neon Entertainment! Here on the blog, we like to make the student planner’s lives easier by providing some ideas for fun college events. Today, let’s talk about some of our holiday game shows and why you need to plan your events early!
Planning an exciting and engaging event for your college or company can be incredibly stressful. Remember though, plan your event ahead of time – you don’t want the holiday season bonanza to take up all availability before the season arrives.
We’ve been in the showbiz business for ages, so take the stress out and bring Neon Entertainment in!
Holiday Game Shows from Neon Entertainment
The games normally last between 60 – 70 minutes, but can be as short as 30 minutes depending on what works best for your event, or even be extended to keep the fun rolling.
There are normally four prize winners per game but if you would like for there to be more winners or more prize money offered, we can do that, too!
Which students are leading the way in holiday spirit? Find out with Reindeer Games, a holiday-themed trivia game show we offer here. Test your and your fellow students’ knowledge of the season with fun and engaging trivia! Best paired with a nice, warm gingerbread cookie, you’re sure to learn something new in this game!
Discover fun facts like which popular Christmas song was actually intended for Thanksgiving, why stockings are hung by the fire, which president first celebrated Hannukkah at the White House, and more!
Think you have chart-topping jingle bells skills? Have the hang of Hannukkah songs? Put your musical knowledge to the test with Jingle Bingo! In this holiday-themed musical game show, we’ve created the ultimate playlist of holiday songs for your next fun college event that will keep you dancing to the new year.
Impress your peers with your holiday song knowledge in this bingo game with a musical twist! Instead of calling out numbers, we play snippets of songs and ask if you know the artist. If you do and have the artist on your card, mark it off. The first to fill a row, column or diagonal and should “Jingle Bingo!” is the winner! A fun twist on the classic game everyone knows.
How Far Ahead of Time Should I Plan my Holiday Game Shows?
Giving the entertainment booking agency that you’re contacting plenty of notice when you are planning an event is an important part of the process. Especially when you’re planning a live event, you need to make sure you budget time for us to make travel arrangements and set up! Generally speaking, you want to target about 6 weeks out, but more time is always appreciated.
Do I Need To Plan With Lead Time?
Yes, you really do. You need to make sure that everything is booked for and available on the day you need it. Booking ahead of time ensures that your name is on the books. No matter what the event is, you’re probably not the only one looking! Remember, if you’re planning a holiday celebration for your school, there are bound to be plenty of others planning the same.
Events with a focus around a specific season, like Holiday Game Shows, other themed activities, and/or any of our other productions can get very full, very quickly. There’s a smaller window that these games or experiences fit in logically and people around the country looking for them. If you don’t book your event with plenty of time to spare, someone else will!
*Check out DIY event options if you need something more last minute. They can be just as engaging as any larger production!*
