Google is a great place to look when searching for ideas for work/office Holiday annual parties. They tend to have a quite a few each year as there are different teams and offices in different locations. One pretty cool one was one they had for their Dublin office a couple of years ago. They created Googleland.
A simple room just wouldn't have cut it for Googleland. The venue was a 13 acre funfair site in Dublin and they changed the funfair into Coney Island for the night.
There was a New York theme and to really incorporate that, men and women on horseback wandered around the fair dressed as members of the New York Police Department and the venue had NYPD squad car types at different spots to add to the event.
Even though the funfair had lots of rides and amusements, the entertainment didn't stop there. The Holiday party also had an iSkate-which was the largest ice-skating rink in Ireland. Clowns and other entertainers from Fossett’s Circus provided fun for all the employees. There was even a room dedicated entirely to balloons.
Employees didn't leave empty handed.They all got a goody bag which included a smart watch. Pretty nice!
