Advice from the Tiki Gods
How do you encourage a bunch of meeting event industry professionals to break out from their familiar social groups in order to mix and mingle with total strangers? You tell them they’re about to get “lei’d.”
How it worked.
Guests received 6 leis, all in the same color, and five “Mad Lib-style” pieces of advice to share with colleagues. Before the advice could be shared, they had to ask the person they were talking to for types of words (a verb, noun, adjective, etc.) to fill in the blanks on the advice. Once the blanks were filled in, they read the humorous advice out to the person and swapped a lei with them. Once they had 6 different-colored leis, they submitted their name into a prize drawing.
