When Dropboxers want to party, not any old theme will do. We pulled out all the stops to transform the popular file hosting company’s annual summer bash into a twisting, tumbling, sumptuous celebration.
The can-do attitude, enthusiasm and energy from the BEcause team was a joy throughout the organising process and we received amazing feedback afterwards from attendees.
Jonathan Killeen, EMEA Office Manager, Dropbox
Dropbox was looking for a creative spin on its annual Summer BBQ for its Dublin team and their families. With a stunning venue already secured, BEcause’s task was to think big and come up with a concept that would captivate and enchant the team, and make it a party to remember.
What we did
Our team in Ireland channelled their creativity to deliver ‘Xanadu,’ a highly memorable celebration of imagination, curiosity, illusion and confusion. Our bespoke fantasy world of wonderment allowed Dropboxers to experience a party like no other alongside their families and partners.
How we did it
Working to a very strict budget, we created bespoke structures and branded assets in advance to ensure that this was a one-of-a-kind experience for 350 Dropbox guests. We built Magnakata village which saw traditional Irish bands perform for the crowd; brought in fire entertainers, magicians and dancers to dazzle guests throughout the day; and served up face painting, kids yoga and farmyard tours for younger attendees. The magic was capped off with a glasshouse that turned into a nightclub in the late hours.
Employee engagement is highly personal, and corporate events must be tailored to your audience to hit the mark. We worked side-by-side to deliver an event that Dropbox will be talking about for years to come.
