Any excuse for a party!

As some of you will know, a few months ago Prizeology moved into new premises. We unpacked our boxes, lined up our pens neatly and got on with the job of sourcing prizes, crafting terms and conditions, and dispensing compliance advice on all things prize promotional (see our home page for our full range of services – yes, that’s a shameless plug). And then a few weeks later it occurred to us. We’d been so busy pushing back the boundaries of promotional marketing that we’d forgotten to stop and celebrate the move. So we had a party!

Our new accommodation is in a great building (it’s a former benefits office, but you’d never know it) with great facilities and a particularly great roof-top terrace, so we had the party here and invited all the lovely new people we’ve met who also have offices in the building, a rather random collection of old friends and, of course, our nearest and dearest.

Now I’ve done some event-organising in my time and I definitely know how to throw a party. Obviously there was fantastic food and drink, there was cool music (actually, in the interests of full disclosure, there wasn’t any music due to what you might call a technical hitch, but there was a lot of chat to make up for it) and obviously there was interactive entertainment.

The very creative (and fabulously mad) Miss Ballooniverse gave each guest their very own piece of balloon art to wear with pride and a cash grabber game brought out everyone’s competitive edge.

As you would expect, we had some very good prizes (thank you Red Letter Days), but I must confess I hadn’t realised quite how determined some of my friends can be (that’s you, Lucy!).

Anyway, it was a very enjoyable evening and the photos taken by the talented Yolande devries are fabulous, so I’ve decided to post a few of them, really so that I and my fellow Prizeologists can perk ourselves up at any time by reliving the fun all over again.

My favourite US prize promotions

If there’s something Americans do right, it’s promotional giveaways (and reality TV). Like in many other country’s prize promotions are a huge marketing tool used to optimise brand awareness and consumer-based consumption. Growing up in America I can recall many prize promotions, my favourite being the gold coins that came inside crisp bags. The coins […]

Winners brassed off by Brewdog’s ‘solid gold’ prizes

Winners brassed off by Brewdog’s ‘solid gold’ prizes It would seem all that glitters is not gold. In fact, this was certainly the case for winners of Brewdog’s recent gold can prize promotion. Actually, case is the operative work here, as beer drinkers were encouraged to find golden cans hidden in cases of beer. It […]

What I’ve learnt about prize promotions

As my third year at Prizeology draws to a close, I decided to reflect on what I’ve learnt working in prize promotions. I started working here fresh out of Sixth Form and ready to give the working world a good go. I had completed placements within some marketing agencies previously, so I had an idea […]
