VIRTUAL AND ONLINE EXPERIENCES
What is a virtual experience?
Virtual or online experiences are activities or entertainment that takes place via a video conferencing platform (like Zoom). We specialise in creating virtual experiences for corporate events.
Read about how virtual experiences work on our ‘How It Works’ page.
What are the benefits of doing virtual experiences?
There are numerous benefits of doing virtual experiences:
- They allow you to connect with remote colleagues & clients all over the world.
- They allow you to access new & unique experiences you normally wouldn’t
- They lead to higher attendance rate vs in-person events
- They make events more accessible & inclusive
- They’re easier to arrange
- They’re more friendly to your carbon footprint than in-person events

How does a virtual experience work?
Booking and enjoying a virtual experience are both very simple!
There are two types of virtual experiences:
- Experiences including delivery: For these experiences we will arrange ‘event packs’ containing materials or ingredients to be delivered to attendees ahead of the event. (Usually arriving 2 days before). Attendees just need to join the event at the specified time with their pack contents to hand.
- Experience with no delivery: For these experiences attendees will just need to join the event at the specified time.
On both of these types of experiences you may need to also provide a few materials yourself, but these are always everyday items. (E.g. for our painting workshops you will need to provide a cup of water and tissues).
To find out more about how to book an experience visit our ‘How It Works’ page.
