Hosts Baltimore produced the ultimate game night — Gaming Through the Decades that took attendees to various gaming pockets from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s. They brought back some decade favorites — Frogger, PONG, and Space Invaders for attendees to engage in some playful competition.
The memories didn’t just stop at the games. Hosts Baltimore outfitted each decade pocket with nostalgic sounds, faces, textures, and colors of the respective decades. Plus, they brought in MTV screen installations, an 80s band, LED bars, polaroid photo booths and more.
Hosts Baltimore surprised stakeholders by bringing in real photos and original polaroids from the company’s 50-year history and featuring them on a larger than life photo wall. The images, highlighting landmark moments and employees from the 70s, 80s, 90s and the 00s, had everyone sharing laughs over the fond memories. Hosts Baltimore also featured old company logos on custom-printed LED bar fronts.
The night wasn’t simply about an anniversary. It was about family and the fun and experiences they’ve had over the past five decades. Guests didn’t just see the anniversary’s impact, they felt it. As coworkers looked up at the polaroid wall boasting photos of the founders, their coworkers, their first products, their early marketing campaigns, their old offices and the old technology, many pealed into laughter over the memories and bonded with colleagues old and new over cocktails. Their beaming smiles continued throughout the night as they played games from their past, their commitment to their company and coworkers and family fully renewed.
