Event at Bollineni Hillside – New experience
I have been doing EmCeeing for the last few years. Every event is a new experience for me. The type of games I conduct, the type of audience, client’s requirements, other game stalls near my event stall, etc – everything is a new experience. For most of the events my role is to entertain the audience by conducting games.
I have hosted Birthday Parties, Game Shows for Corporate, Product Launches at Malls, Annual days of Art and Entertainment Schools, Compering for NGO’s etc. Most of my Emceeing orders come through online. When the event managers search for corporate emcees in Chennai, my website stands first in the ranking and they visit my website and contact me.
Same way this time I got a call from Event-U-All event management from Bangalore for this Bollineni Hillside event. When I heard their requirement, I was very much happy because it gave me an opportunity to explore more. Yes, they wanted me to conduct quiz show in addition to the games.
Conducting quiz show is an area which I have never explored, though I had gone as participant for a few quiz shows several years back. I told the event manager I shall prepare for the quiz, that shouldn’t be a problem. Event happened on 26th January 2015 at Bollineni HillSide Apartments (Nookampalayam, Perumbakkam Road, Sithalapakkam, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600126, near Sathyabama College and Semmancheri). Event was named Bollineni Republic Day Carnival and it was organized by BSPCL.
We started the event with flag hoisting and then I started conducting games for the kids and adults. As usual everyone enjoyed the games and took part in the games enthusiastically. Post lunch session was the quiz show. I invested almost 6 to 8 hours to prepare the quiz questions in different genres (General Knowledge, Sports, Current Affairs, Science, Politics, History, Geography, Cinema, Rapid Fire, Audio/Video, etc). It was a wonderful experience for me; preparing questions for the quiz by myself and conducting it. The quiz show went extremely well. We planned for 3 teams with 2 participants in each team, but to our surprise 19 participants registered for the quiz show. I took a spontaneous decision to have audio/visual screening round to select 4 teams from this 19 participants. It worked out well and eventually the quiz show was a great success. I would like to thank Event-U-All to have given me this opportunity to explore in a new area.
After the quiz show I continued with my game activities till the next event started. The next event was the launch of a new property “Bollineni Iris” and this event was hosted by Emcee Hema. Band Performance by Super Singer Maathangi and team followed this session.
Absolutely cool now and forever,
