We used NextGen for our virtual office party choosing the Around the World escape room and scavenger hunt. It is nothing more than a PowerPoint and a link to fill in our answer. Almost none of the answer links worked correctly. It definitely turned out to be team building event, but more to figure out the technology, not focus on the games. Don't try to do a scavenger hunt via Zoom either! If the person trying to get the item doesn't speak quickly with their item no one knows they are there. Randy was great leading up to the event and well organized. Just didn't think it was worth the high cost per person. Make sure you understand the logistics and exactly how the game will work ahead of time!
Thank you, amazing to work with and we look forward to producing your future events!
We turned our annual in-person event into a Virtual event with the help of NextGen, they created the production & show flow for our online conference and provided cool user engagement activities within the production to help keep the attendees highly engaged throughout event. We will be using their services again in the future, due to the fact they are so easy to work with and provide excellent production quality.
We wanted to give an excellent recommendation to NextGen Events, they did an amazing job pre-event, during event and post event for our corporate team building session setup in our office. The selection of VR experiences were awesome including the Virtual Escape rooms they setup and also on the one vr station was "Walk the plank", which everyone loved! They even added bonus headsets at no charge to accomodate our attendee count. The event staff was great and they were very helpful with explaining each vr experience and helping thru navigation. We could not be any happier and look forward to using NextGen again this year for our other events.
While I was excited to work with NextGen, the event was not anything I expected. In the beginning, the owner was very responsive, eager, and open to working within my budget. He would email me multiple times, back to back, determined to secure the event. We agreed to do a exciting, interactive group VR experience. The final event was anything but that. We had a few headsets with three-four monotonous, and less than impressive "experiences". Only one of the headsets included a game that required interaction. The guest count was significantly lower than the amount of reservations we received. Part of this had to do with the very lackluster set up and experiences that left people disinterested. I reached out to the owner after the event to give feedback and remind him that we were accidently overcharged $100. I didn't recieve a response. I reached out again in a few weeks and nothing. Suddenly, the owner wasn't as quick to respond back. We paid almost 1k for 7 people...All in all, I feel completely scammed and would not recommend.
