2018 Fan Fest

In 2018, Elevate partnered with Electronic Arts for their annual EA Play three-day gaming fan festival, providing not only staffing assistance but ensuring a high-quality guest experience.

What We Did

The staffing request included recruitment of brand ambassadors, game demo coordinators, event greeters, costumed characters, and an event production team that worked onsite for 2 weeks leading up to the event.


How We Did It

Staff were interviewed over the course of four weeks to ensure recruitment of gaming enthusiasts and registration staff. Profiles were created with relevant experience for the approval process. Elevate also facilitated the onsite training, payroll and daily reporting of the live execution.

 

How we succeeded

Having delivered on all KPI’s and the success of the event, Elevate and EA Play are continuing the partnership into 2019 by preparing for the next annual fan fest extravaganza.

I have been extremely impressed with the work that Elevate have carried out for us. The quality of the Staff they have is fantastic, as is their ability to deliver every time. Elevate always save the day, especially on briefs that are often not straightforward and require a bit of “outside the box” thinking.
