FOOD AND DRINK

Chances are your employees may be a bit bored with buffets or standard event food. Why not teach your staff useful cooking tips as they also enjoy a delicious meal? Book in a culinary arts masterclass and enjoy dishes straight from the menus of some of the nation’s best chefs.

Hinterlands is also next door neighbours with Liverpool’s premier street food market, The Baltic Market. Home to 11 unique stalls, the Market has something to appeal to any set of taste buds. Consider giving each employee a food allowance and letting them choose their own delicious adventure.

As your event carries over into the evening, The Alchemist, self-described “specialists in molecular mixology cocktails and drinks”, can be onsite to mix up and instruct in the making of carefully crafted beverages.

TO DO

Liverpool is a fantastic city with loads to see and do. Let your employees experience a bit of the magic by including a city tour in your conference weekend. The Magical Mystery Tour, operated by the famous Cavern Club, offers a 2-hour tour of the spots that John, Paul, George and Ringo frequented as the Beatles took the world by storm. If you’re in for a more of a thrill, Shiverpool Ghost Tours offer a variety of spooky tours, both by foot and bus. If you’re looking to create an active, fun-filled event, consider touring Liverpool by bike with Liverpool Cycle Tours! The company offers a variety of tours to accommodate different timeframes and physical abilities.

Don’t have the budget for a company-wide trip to Grand Canaria or Disneyland Paris? Transport your employees to a sunny beach, the top of Mount Everest, or approaching the peak of a roller-coaster using the magical technology of Virtual Reality. Liverpool-based company VR-HERE offers rental of all the equipment necessary to create a memorable Virtual Reality experience for your employees. Make use of Hinterland’s black-out space, The Eclipse Theatre, to avoid any distractions and leave your employees fully immersed in whatever world they choose to enter.

TO SEE

Projection Mapping uses the latest video technology to project imagery onto blank walls and infrastructure, creating a visually engaging atmosphere for your attendees. Use the technology to improve the ambience of your event or creatively display the logos of your sponsors. Hinterlands has a partnership with a local Projection Mapping company who will work with you to create the most memorable and striking environment possible.

Inspire the creative juices of your employees to flow by providing an interactive art installation. Fancy Features creates mural-sized colouring sheets for employees to bring life to throughout the duration of your event. Alternatively, you could commission a chalkboard wall to be hung on the blank walls of Hinterlands, allowing your employees to creatively respond to the information they have been taking in.

These unique, visually-appealing ideas will wow your attendees and make your event stand out on social media!

THE LASTING IMPRESSION

We’ve all come home from an event loaded up with miscellaneous items that end up jammed in the back of a cupboard, in the donate pile, or maybe even in the bin. Show your employees you are grateful for their contributions by sending them home with a tastefully branded, high quality memento. Consider a personalised Moleskine journal, a high-quality water bottle printed with your company’s logo, or a sturdy tote-bag.
