On tasting day, everyone will log into a virtual video cafe, where the barista will share stories, run fun team-building games, and lead the tasty ceremony.
ONE EXTRA ACTIVITY
Virtual Corporate Wine tasting
Robert Louis Stevenson once said that wine is bottled poetry and he got that right. One of our favorite virtual experiences at IMG is virtual wine tasting. There are so many ways to enjoy this team bonding experience. Virtual wine tastings are such sensorial experiences.
You can take your clients on a trip of flavors enjoying wines from Tuscany, Bordeaux, Australia, or South Africa. Or you can make them fall in love with the aromas of the Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, or the Guadalupe Valley in Baja California.
The possibilities are endless. Just remember. How you execute these events and communicate them is key. The same event if executed well can have much higher engagement. Keeping engagement, interactivity in mind
