What was Miniopoly?
Here at ITA* we like to do things a little bit differently!
So rather than showing clients our venues and suppliers through site visits and websites, we thought we would do something a little extraordinary… ITA* style.
On February 4th the ITA* team bought our award winning Little Black Book to life by creating the Ultimate Venue Showcase – ITA* Presents Miniopoly. The entire ITA* Venue portfolio and incredible partnerships under one roof for one day only at Stationers’ Hall!
Behind the game
Imagine a life size Monopoly board, a real life Mr Monopoly hosting the game, and a Treasure Chest filled with prizes– Miniopoly!
The game was simple. Guests were asked a question about a particular venue in the ITA* venue portfolio, each answer was a venue or square on the board. Guests had 10 seconds to stand on the correct answer. If you get the answer wrong you were sent directly to jail. The last person standing on the board wins!
The winner got a lucky dip into the ITA* Treasure Chest, filled with spectacular prizes such as a Hunter Wellies, Rum Master Classes at Rum & Sugar, Afternoon Tea for two at Kensington Palace, tickets to ZSL London Zoo, and Kew Gardens as well as Selfridges vouchers – to name just a few.
However, we have a problem; we think our Project Manager Hana may still be stuck in jail considering her empty desk this morning…
On arrival guests were greeted by the ITA* team and a classic black London taxi – it was soon discovered that the taxi was a photo booth! Thanks to Mega Booth, guests snapped away with the fun props supplied and slipped the photos in their bags for closer review the next day.
Event Prop Hire helped us find our inner peace with their stunning room transformed as Regent’s Park, featuring grass, trees, park benches, a water fountain, chirping birds and lots more. Guests had the chance to play in the park while tasting beautiful dishes from our award winning caterer Chester Boyd.
Team builders; Bluehat Group, got our sleeves rolled up and competitive side flaring, as they challenged guests to three tasks in attempts to break Guinness World records! Too tough for you? Maybe we could have found you being pampered by UK renowned, Nails Inc. who provided complimentary mini manicures, flaunting their latest array of colours suitably named after popular London street names!
All in all, ITA*s Miniopoly event was a huge success, and we had a lot of fun showcasing and discussing upcoming events and our venue options with you.
