a0.com Christmas Party
AO.com is the leading supplier of appliances online and has grown rapidly since its inception in 2000. They hold an annual Christmas party to reward their staff and celebrate the success of a number of individuals.
AO.com was looking for an event centre piece that would be fun, engaging and memorable. The installation needed to be large so that it made an impact in a cavernous space, while also being able to safely accommodate a good proportion of the 1000+ guests.
Using 200,000 balls and our bespoke, modular ball pit construction, we were able to construct a 60 sqm ball pit in a rectangular configuration. This shape, and the careful placement of the equipment within the space, allowed us to maximise the visual impact of the ball pit, while also balancing the floor space used.
Throughout the evening our staff facilitated the smooth running of the installation, ensuring people's belongings were safely stored in the lockers we supplied and taking countless photos so that guests could share them on their social media profiles.
The addition of our Ball Pit to the AO Christmas Party provided the guests with a memorable way to celebrate not only the success of their teams, but also ensured the event was fun and engaging.
AO.com were very happy with the event, dubbing it as “the best one yet” and made a feature of the Ball Pit in their internal annual music video.
