2022 has been unique in that many clients (new and old) had some catching up to do. After a year plus of little to no live events due to the pandemic, people were A. Ready to party! and B. Companies were ready to spend. We noticed a lot of new people in positions who were responsible for setting up parties. This led to more last-minute events than ever before, and it really put our experience to the test in helping new planners shape what a good event looks like. These challenges put extra pressure on venues, suppliers, and everything that makes an event successful.
US Poker & Casino Parties continued to expand this past year. From a record number of events and larger events, we pressed forward with our strategic plan to become an interactive entertainment company and do more events outside the Midwest. We added activations like dancers, musicians, comedians, magicians, impersonators, photobooth, Bingo, Game Shows, Giant games (Connect 4, Jenga, Chess), Foosball, Arcade games, and many more to help our clients put on a great party. We also organized successful events in a dozen states outside of the area, including Florida, Arizona, Texas, Idaho, California, New York, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Ohio, Atlanta, Denver, and Massachusetts. We are set up for an exciting future and look forward to taking on 2023 head-on!
