Virtual Holiday Party Ideas

 

Virtual Holiday Party Ideas

by Laura Bickle

There’s exactly one month until Christmas and event pros have been busy creating virtual holiday activities to help teams celebrate the season together but apart.

Here’s a cool selection of options:

 

Sam Pearce
MAKE IT MAGICAL
Illusionist Sam Pearce has created a customizable family-friendly corporate holiday party package that includes interactive on-screen games, magic and illusions from yours truly and a team video montage—Santa Claus can even drop by if you’d like!

 

 

Erica Ehm

CHEERFUL CHOICES
National Speakers Bureau has curated a rich selection of entertainment options. Would your attendees like a cooking class with celebrity chef Bal Arneson or an interactive session of CBC’s The Debaters with Steve Patterson? Or maybe a party hosted by Erica Ehm or a comedy set with Susan Stewart is more their scene.

 

Ross Petty

GET THEATRICAL
The holiday show produced by Ross Petty productions is a family tradition for many families in the Toronto area. This year’s virtual production, There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays, a pre-produced show featuring customizable and interactive entertainment, is available as a corporate holiday party.

 


Guitaro 5000

TUNE IN
Yes, you can still have a dance floor! Guitaro, a NYC-based one-man band has moved his popular in-person all-request show online and is sure to get your guests grooving. He is just one of the many virtual party experiences offered by Canadian company, Experiential Experts.
